Origin: a Latin derivative
meaning "Gift of the Earth."
Coriander essential oil is derived from the seeds of the Cilantro plant. Its aroma is similarly fresh and herbaceous, but has distinctly unique benefits. The soothing scent of Coriander essential oil helps create a relaxing atmosphere, and in addition to diffusion can be applied to the skin for topical cleansing properties and used in cooking for a bright flavor.
Why should I add Coriander oil to my collection? Coriander essential oil is similar in chemical composition to Lavender oil, containing high amounts of linalool. This linalool content makes Coriander essential oil one of the best essential oils for the skin because it helps the skin maintain a clean-looking, clear complexion. This is a very unique characteristic for spice essential oils, and Coriander essential oil’s bright, almost citrus-like scent makes it a wonderful alternative in skincare for those who prefer earthier aromas to florals. Like Lavender oil, Coriander essential oil also offers a particularly soothing aroma.
