Coriander (Coriandrum sativum), a feathery annual herb of the parsley family, is a native to the Mediterranean region. It is now widely cultivated all over the world for its seeds, as a spice, or for essential oil production. It was once the leading essential oil plant. The plant has erect stems which can grow up to 3 feet tall and has beautiful umbels of pink or white flowers. The fruit of Coriander is yellowish-brown, and globular in shape. Coriander essential oil is steam distilled from the seeds with a percentage yield ranging from 0.1 to 1%. The oil has a very true aroma of the freshly crushed seeds. Coriander essential oil produced from the leaves contains a higher proportion of decyl aldehyde than that from the seeds.

Because of its warming effects, Coriander essential oil is helpful in relieving problems associated with the digestive system, such as nausea and flatulence. Its warming effects are also beneficial in treating rheumatism, arthritis and muscle spasms. It is also refreshing and uplifting and can reduce feelings of tension, fatigue and nervous weakness.

Coriander has a distinctive sweet, woody-spicy and musky fragrance. Top notes are fresh, sweet and spicy, and undertones are musky.

Coriander essential oil promotes happiness and joy, reduces worries and helps provide a sense of security and stability. It stimulates the central nervous system and relieves lethargy, mental fatigue and nervousness. It can even inspire creativity.
