We source only pure essential oils.

Cassia Essential Oil is a known sensitizer.  For this reason, we suggest that it be used in diffusers only.  It blends well with a lot of oils and is often enjoyed with citrus oils — especially when needing immunity boosts.  We really like the scent, but use in moderation.  Too much will overpower your diffuser blend and can irritate your nasal passages . . . so go with a drop at a time here.

Max topical use is 0.05%.  This is equivalent to approximately 1 drop of cassia essential oil in 100mL of carrier!  This is why we suggest that you only use it in your diffuser unless you purchase a pre-diluted roller bottle.

With our pre-diluted oils . . . if diluted for kids is the highest dilution you see, it’s also the max dilution possible. Pre-diluted oils are in jojoba.

Cassia Essential Oil Safety Info

Tisserand and Young caution that cassia essential oil may inhibit blood clotting, may cause embryotoxicity, may cause skin sensitization (high risk), and may cause mucous membrane irritation. Caution is warranted for oral use if you are taking diabetes medication or an anticoagulant medication, having major surgery, have a peptic ulcer, suffer from hemophilia or other bleeding disorders. Caution is warranted for topical use if you are hypersensitive, have diseased or damaged skin, and in children under 2 years of age.  Max topical use is 0.05%.  Cassia essential oil should still follow the safety guidelines below. ~ Source:  Tisserand, Robert and Young, Rodney. Essential Oil Safety: A Guide for Health Care Professionals: Churchill Livingstone; 2 edition (2013). Reading the full profile for Cassia essential oil is highly suggested by your DeRu Staff.

While we’ve made this clear that we are selling this essential oil to use in your diffuser, your inhaler, or topically (diluted), it is a pure essential oil and can be used as such.  With all essential oils:

  • Never use them undiluted, in eyes or mucus membranes (this includes mouth, ear canals, noses, genital regions as well as internal areas).  The strength of essential oils can easily damage these soft tissue areas.
  • Do not take internally unless working with a qualified and expert practitioner.
    Keep away from children.
  • If applying an essential oil to your skin always perform a small patch test to an insensitive part of the body (after you have properly diluted the oil in an appropriate carrier).

  • Oral Safety is only given because many people have been told to take oils internally.  Because several people look to us for safety advice, we feel obligated to offer those safety statements, although we do not believe anyone should be ingesting essential oils without being guided by an expert.  Experts will take your medical history into account before they suggest oils for you to ingest, diffuse, or use topically.
