Cassia: The Oil of Self-Assurance

Cassia is considered hotter than Cinnamon but its energetic vibration is softer. Cassia takes a quieter, more gentle approach than its counterpart Cinnamon oil.

Cassia essential oil helps to release the energy of worthless, unimportant and suppression that keeps us separate from our higher self and our divine source. Cassia helps the individual regain a sense of self, inner strength, and courage. It brings about gladness and courage to the heart and the soul. In this way, it’s an amazing oil to use if you’re shy or timid because it helps those who try to hold back or shy away from saying what they truly want to say. Cassia restores confidence in the person who dislikes being the centre of attention and encourages “putting oneself out there” and try new things so they feel self-assured in their ability and worth.

This oil helps us know that each of us are free and have an important part to play in our own and others’ spiritual journey. Cassia helps the individual discover their innate unique talents and gifts. We need to recognise our authentic Self for ourselves. It is only our Self that really suppresses our connection to God and our spiritual freedoms.
