Applied topically, Cilantro essential oil is soothing and cooling to the skin, and adds a fresh, herbal aroma to any essential oil blend when diffused. Use topically for cleansing of the skin and nails, or of household surfaces. Cilantro essential oil’s culinary uses are also endless, adding a flavorful twist to meats, salads, and dips.
Why should I add Cilantro oil to my collection? Like other spice and herb essential oils, Cilantro essential oil can be used to add and enhance flavor in food dishes. Aside from culinary uses, Cilantro essential oil shares the chemical component linalool with other tender-leaf herb essential oils (such as Basil oil), a property that provides skin-soothing sensations and surface cleansing properties. In contrast to other tender-leaf herb essential oils, Cilantro essential oil’s high contents of the constituent trans-2-decenal gives it an aroma that is cooler and crisper than its relatives, as well as amplifies its cleansing properties.
Diffusion: Use three to four drops in the diffuser of your choice.
Internal use: Dilute one drop in 120 mL of liquid.
Topical use: Apply one to two drops to desired area. Dilute with a carrier oil to minimize any skin sensitivity.
Possible skin sensitivity. Keep out of reach of children. If you are pregnant, nursing, or under a doctor’s care, consult your physician. Avoid contact with eyes, inner ears, and sensitive areas.
