Coriander is an under-appreciated oil from my point of view. It can be used for cooking, clearing your skin, and has a fresh green scent. So who wouldn’t like this oil?
Coriander is an annual herb that grows three feet high and is very aromatic. Coriander seeds have been used for centuries to aid digestion and are still used today for this same benefit.
So, The unique Coriander oil can promote digestion taken internally, aromatically for relaxation, topically for clear skin and more. While Coriander is widely known for its use in the kitchen, it is clear that the benefits of Coriander oil reach far beyond the realm of cooking—making Coriander a popular oil for everyday use.
Coriander has a high linalool content, so it helps skin maintain complexion. Coriander can be soothing to the body. Coriander’s sweet, herbaceous aroma is both relaxing and stimulating, making it a good rotation oil to use in blends to add a fresh, herbaceous note.
Coriander blends well with minty, fresh essential oils such as Peppermint or Wintergreen oil because of its green, herbaceous scent. The combination of minty essential oils and refreshing Coriander oil produces a fresh, clean scent.
