Tisserand and Young caution that there is a high risk of skin sensitization when using Cassia Oil (the bark or leaf oil) and recommend a dermal maximum of 0.05%. They indicate that it may inhibit blood clotting and that it is contraindicated in pregnancy/breastfeeding. Avoid use with children under 2. Reading Tisserand and Young's full profile is recommended.
