Coriander essential oil is extracted from the seeds of coriander with the help of steam distillation. The scientific name of Coriander is Coriandrum Sativum. Coriander essential oil consists of compounds like Borneol, Cineole, Cymene, Dipentene, Linalool, Phellandrene, Pinene, Terpineol and Terpinolene, and these are the causes behind its medicinal properties.
Coriander is famous worldwide as a spice, and we are aware of some its medicinal properties as well, such as its digestive and stomachic properties. But seldom do we care to know about its other health benefits, those mainly enjoyed when its essential oil is used.
Coriander has a warm, sweet and spicy aroma. It is most well known for culinary but is effective for digestive issues, arthritis, fatigue & exhaustion, oily skin, stiffness and stomach cramps. This oil's warming effect is helpful for alleviating muscle aches and pain related to rheumatism, arthritis and muscle spasms and strains.

As with all essential oils, never use them undiluted. Do not take internally unless working with a qualified and expert practitioner. Keep away from children. If applying an essential oil to your skin always perform a small patch test to an insensitive part of the body (after you have properly diluted the oil in an appropriate carrier.)
