Get To Know Cassia Essential Oil

DoTerra Essential Oil…

Cassia Essential Oil
Cinnamomum cassia

Cassia, a close relative of cinnamon, is notable for its wonderful fragrance. Mentioned in the Old Testament, cassia has literally been used for thousands of years both for its fragrance and calming properties.

Cassia: One of the ingredients in the anointing oil (Ex. 30:24), and an article of merchandise imported into Tyre by Greek merchants (Ezek. 27:19).


Properties: Antifungal, antibacterial, antiviral

Historical Uses: Cassia has been used often as a spice.  For its medicinal value, it has been used for colic, colds, flatulent dyspepsia, nausea, kidney and reproductive complaints, diarrhea and rheumatism.

Possible Uses: Cassia can be very strong on the skin. Is often used in blends as a supportive oil. Can be used in small quantities.



  • Topically – Generally dilute (with coconut or olive oil) when applying topically due to its caustic nature. Apply to reflex points, muscle, forehead or directly to area of concern.
  • Aromatically – Can be diffused for a cinnamon type aroma. Diffuse with care, too strong may irritate nasal membranes.
  • Internally – Can be taken internally in gel caps, water or honey. Cassia is categorized GRAS for human consumption by the FDA
When Cassia is diffused it can assist with fevers, colds, flu, low vitality, chills and will support the digestive system.

I just wanted to write to tell you of my latest experience with doTERRA’S essential oils.

My 7 year old daughter is prone to bladder infections. Well, about 3 months ago she
had a bubble bath and got one. So I looked in the Modern Essential’s book and it said to apply a warm compress with Cinnamon. I didn’t have it as I loaned it out so I used Cassia (very similar oil) and it worked like a charm! I also made a rollerball up with Lemongrass and Purify as is also suggested. The bladder infection was gone in just 2 days. Then just 3 days ago the same thing happened… Kids got bubble bath for Christmas, put lots in the bath and bam! Next day she had a bladder infection so again I did the Cassia warm compress on her abdomen and the roller ball with Lemongrass and Purify with fractionated coconut oil. Worked great again! Thank you doTERRA!

As a sufferer of Crohn’s Disease for over 20 years, I have found that a capsule of 2 drops of DigestZen and 2 drops of frankincense makes a world of difference in the pain level that I feel on a daily basis.

I have also found that using cassia, DigestZen, and peppermint externally can help with the pain as well.

I also drink a peppermint tea (4 cups water, 2 tablespoons honey, and 1 drop peppermint – work on it until you get your taste right) everyday that helps me with my Crohns.



  • Avoid during pregnancy.
  • Repeated use can cause extreme skin irritation.
  • Diffuse with caution; it will irritate the nasal membranes if it is inhaled directly from the diffuser.



All Natural Kidney Infection Support

DoTerra Essential Oil Support:

Kidney Infection

The main components of the urinary tract are kidneys, ureters, bladder, and urethra. Any part of the urinary system may become infected and this is generally referred to as urinary tract infection (UTI).

  • Lower urinary tract infection involves the urethra, the bladder, and, in men, the prostate gland.
  • Upper urinary tract infection refers to infection of the kidneys.
  • Infection of the kidneys is also known as pyelonephritis

Urine, similar to other fluids in the body, is normally sterile without significant bacterial infection. Therefore, the presence of bacteria in the urine is considered abnormal and may lead to urinary tract infection. Typically, bacteria gain access to the urinary system from outside through the urethra (the drainage tube for urine from the bladder). The bacteria may then ascend in the urinary system and cause kidney infections. Kidney infection (upper UTI) is typically more severe than lower UTI because bacteria may infect the blood stream (bacteremia) from the kidneys.

Listed below are some of the common kidney infection issues:

  • Back lower pain and also around abdomen area
  • Feel pain when urinating
  • Increased urinating frequency compared to normal day, except with little urine
  • Urine may contain blood and was in darker color or murky.
  • Fever
  • Smelly urine
  • Nausea
  • Fatigue
  • Diarrhea

Women are more susceptible to urinary tract infections due to the shorter length of urethra.
