Cassia Bark or Oil is used to address appetite loss, dyspepsia and spasms associated with bloating, flatulence, nausea and diarrhoea. It has also been used traditionally for the common cold and exhaustion. The flowers are a traditional "blood purifier". General Herb Information *Note: Bianca Rosa Cassia Pure Essential Oil is not to be taken internally. Cassia Bark Cinnamomum aromaticum Nees (= C. Cassia Blume). Family: Lauraceae. Other Names: Canelle de Chine (French); Chin. Zimtbaum (German); cassia lignea (Italian). Description: C. aromaticum is a large evergreen tree of up to 10 m in height with simple, alternate leaves that are three-nerved from the base. The inconspicuous flowers are yellowish white and are followed by round drupes of about 8 mm in diameter. It may be distinguished from true cinnamon ( C. verum) by the alternate leaves (opposite or subopposite in C. verum) and by the smaller, rounded fruit (larger - ca. 15 mm, and oblong in C. verum). Origin: Myanmar, formerly Burma. The tree has a long history of commercial cultivation in China, Indonesia and Vietnam. Parts Used: Bark from the tree trunk, but with the outer cork layers removed ( Cinnamomi chinessis cortex); the dried flowers ( Cinnamomi flos = Cassiae flos) and essential oil ( Cinnamomum cassiae aetheroleum) Therapeutic Category: Appetite stimulant, dyspeptic disorders. Active Ingredients: Bark contains volatile oil with cinnamaldehyde as the main constituent (about 90%) and other derivatives of cinnamate. It is easily distinguished from real cinnamon ( C. verum) by the presence of 0.45% coumarin and the almost complete absence of eugenol (except for a provenance from Nigeria). Bark is rich in procyanidins, phenylpropanoids and mucilage. Pharmacological Effects: Antispasmodic, choleretic, hypotensive and antiseptic properties, amongst many others, have been documented for mostly the oil. Antispasmodic activity has been linked to cinnamaldehyde. Status: Pharm.; Comm. E+; WHO 1. Botanical Name: Cinnamomum cassia Extraction Method: steam Plant: leaves Origin: Vietnam
