Cassia Essential Oil has traditionally been used as a tonic, carminative and stimulant to treat nausea, flatulence and diarrhea. Chinese and Japanese scientists have found that Cassia’s sedative effects lower high blood pressure and fever in experimental animals. The constituents of the oil have antiseptic properties, killing various types of bacteria and fungi.
