The main difference between cassia and cinnamon oil is their coumarin content. Coumarin is a plant component that can be toxic in larger quantities. In cinnamon, the coumarin content is quite low whereas, in cassia, it is much higher. Therefore, cinnamon oil is a better choice for use in seasoning. The smell and taste of both the spices are quite similar, so ensure you use pure cinnamon oil.
