CORIANDER SEED OIL (CORIANDER)

 

Coriander oil is extracted from Coriandrum Ativum of the Apiaceae family and is also known as Coriander Seed or Chinese parsley

The essential oil extracted from this ancient herb has a well deserved place in aromatherapy, as it helps to ease the mind and fight fatigue, while it warms and calms the digestive system, relieves rheumatism and arthritic pain, muscular spasms and detoxifies the body.

The annual or biennial plant is a native of Morocco and grows to about 1 metre in height. It has sparse, fine, feathery leaves and pink, white flowers, which are followed by green seeds. Native to Europe and Western Asia and is cultivated worldwide.

The seeds have been used for thousands of years by the Egyptians, as an aphrodisiac and by the Romans and Greeks to flavor their wines, while the Indians use it in their cooking.

Coriander oil has a sweet, spicy, warm smell, is nearly colorless to pale yellow and has a watery viscosity.
