Cassia

The Cinnamomum cassia is an evergreen tree grown in Southern China and Southeast Asia. They grow to 12 feet in height and are of the family Lauraceae.They have a straight, woody stem and clusters of flowers that resemble candles, eventually turning into seed pods. The flowers are usually yellow, but can be white or pink. The spaces between the seeds within the pods are filled with a sweet pulp. The leaves are picked before, or during flowering, while the pods are picked when ripe in the fall. Cassia has a warm aroma that will help you to center yourself during times of doubt. Sweeter smelling then Cinnamon, this herb boasts of boosting the immune system, calming nausea, balancing blood sugar levels, decrease food cravings, and helps warm cold extremities. A very handy herb to have. If you are not able to get it as an herb, you can click below for the Cassia Essential Oil. This is a hot oil so make sure you mix it with a carrier oil before you use it on your skin.
This oil was used in Moses' holy anointing oil in Exodus 30:22-33   22 Then the Lord said to Moses,23 “Take the following fine spices: 500 shekels[d] of liquid myrrh, half as much (that is, 250 shekels) of fragrant cinnamon, 250 shekels[e] of fragrant calamus,24 500 shekels of cassia—all according to the sanctuary shekel—and a hin[f] of olive oil.25 Make these into a sacred anointing oil, a fragrant blend, the work of a perfumer. It will be the sacred anointing oil.26 Then use it to anoint the tent of meeting, the ark of the covenant law,27 the table and all its articles, the lampstand and its accessories, the altar of incense,28 the altar of burnt offering and all its utensils, and the basin with its stand.29 You shall consecrate them so they will be most holy, and whatever touches them will be holy.
30 “Anoint Aaron and his sons and consecrate them so they may serve me as priests.31 Say to the Israelites, ‘This is to be my sacred anointing oil for the generations to come.32 Do not pour it on anyone else’s body and do not make any other oil using the same formula. It is sacred, and you are to consider it sacred.33 Whoever makes perfume like it and puts it on anyone other than a priest must be cut off from their people.’”
