A close relative to Cinnamon, Cassia has a strong, spicy aroma that can be used in small quantities to transform many dishes. Cassia essential oil is a ”warming” oil, adding a spicy flavour to food. Cassia can be used in cooking either as a replacement for Cinnamon in pies and breads or by itself in a myriad of main dishes and desserts.
It’s one of the few essential oils mentioned in the Old Testament, noted for its unmistakable fragrance and calming aromatic properties.
• Warming, uplifting aroma
