Latest Market Info: Aug, 2023
Spring Harvest is now nearing completion in China. Production volumes for this harvest are estimated to be down approximately 30% versus last year, however, global demand has remained low over the past few months. For the production of derivatives and New Method oil, volumes from Vietnam are readily available to supplement demand. Prices for these, as well as Traditional Method oil, are nearing historic lows. The Fall Harvest will prove to be an interesting season for farmers to be incentivized to produce if prices remain low. We are watching and monitoring closely.

Description of Cassia Oil Chinese
Originally a product of southeastern China and certain regions of Vietnam, Cassia Oil is steam-distilled from the bark of the Cinnamomum Cassia tree. Strong and spicy, this product has earned the name “Chinese Cinnamon Oil” due to its intense likeness to “true” cinnamon from Sri Lanka. Its aroma retains a warm and woody top note, paired with powerful sweet and balsamic undertones. Cassia oil’s relatively low cost makes it far more accessible than other cinnamon-type oils, allowing the oil to act as an attractive alternative within baked goods, candies, and mouthwashes.
