(Cinnamonium cassia) In Palestine, cassia oil was mixed with olive oil, and this was used to rub on the feet, and also to massage into the scalp, as it kept hair dark and greasy, and prevented baldness (Genders. 1972). The twigs are used in China to improve blood circulation, and also to treat angina (Geng Junying). But Cassia oil was one of the precious perfumes, an ingredient of the holy oil of the Old Testament. It was also used as part of the incense burnt in the Temple (Zohary). In much the same way as the oak in European mythology, some of the earlier peoples of India regarded the Cassia as the origin of human life (Porteous. 1928).


A name given to the ASPIDISTRA (Bonar), in the same vein as Cannon-ball Plant. It seemed to the Victorians that nothing could harm this plant. Cf too Bar-room Plant.
