Two essential oils are produced from Coriandrum sativum. Coriander from the seeds and Cilantro from fresh leaves. If looking for oil from seeds see our Coriander Co2 Extract.
Our Cilantro essential oil is organic grown and steam distilled in USA with a bright and sparkling green citrusy fresh leaf aroma. Fresh Cilantro leaves contribute to the unique flavors found in many cuisines, most notably Thai (called pak chee), Latin, Caribbean, Mediterranean and Indian.
There's just something uniquely special about the aroma of Cilantro. Diffusing a few drops combined with Kaffir Lime Leaf releases a zesty aroma that I find to elevate mood and reinforce self-confidence all while soothing emotions. Give it a try, but you just might find yourself craving a serving of Tom Kha Gai soup!
Research papers on PubMed indicate Cilantro essential oil is beneficial for management of diabetes mellitus. Cilantro is also an antioxidant that helps control free radicals and may be beneficial in removing heavy metals from the body. Cilantro is classified as GRAS (generally recognized as safe) by the FDA; however, because essential oil is such a powerful concentrated substance one should seek the advice of a licensed healthcare professional before beginning any cleanse recipe found on the internet for clearing heavy metals from the body.
As a natural perfume ingredient Cilantro can impart a fresh green zesty note to gourmand and citrus blends.
