If you’re looking to learn about different essential oils, then you’re in the right place! Read below to find out more about the origins and properties of Cilantro essential oil.
The leaves of Coriandrum sativum are steam distilled to produce an essential oil that has a sharp, bright and herbaceous aroma. Cilantro is a middle note oil that blends well with Bergamot, Cinnamon, Ginger, Grapefruit, Lemon and Orange.
Cilantro comes from the same plant as Coriander (the latter is taken from the seeds). Like its counterpart, Cilantro is well regarded for its use in the kitchen. Want to give your digestive or immune system a little love? Add a drop to your favorite dish—it’s particularly nice in Mexican food. An invigorating oil, add Cilantro to diffuser blends or room sprays to awaken the senses, or use in massage blends to help relieve minor joint and muscle pain.
