Originating in France, the seeds of Coriandrum sativum are steam distilled to produce a sweet, herbaceous, and spicy oil. Coriander is a middle note oil that blends well with Bergamot, Black Pepper, Cinnamon, Clary Sage, Ginger, Lemon, and Nutmeg.
Known mostly for its fragrant and delectable addition to food, Coriander should not be overlooked for its therapeutic properties. It can be added to carrier oil and massaged into skin to help reduce inflammation and relieve minor pain associated with arthritis. This soothing oil can help alleviate physical strain and mental tension as well. Apply to the temples to ease headaches and anxious feelings. Need to get rid of acne or blackheads? Coriander is fantastic for oil-prone skin and can be added to homemade facial cleansers or toners.
