doTERRA Coriander essential oil is part of the same plant that produces Cilantro essential oil, however it's extracted from the seed while Cilantro is extracted from the leaves!
An annual herb also known as cilantro, both the leaves and the seeds of the Coriandrum sativum plant are commonly used in cooking for their aroma and flavor. In addition to their use in cooking, they offer relaxing properties, both physically and mentally, as well as digestion support, skin support, and even cognitive health.
Thanks to Coriander's main chemical constituent of Linalool, which is also the main chemical constituent for Lavender essential oil, it has soothing properties for any anxious feelings or stress.
Coriander has a herbaceous, calming and floral scent, while it also stimulates the senses which makes it a lovely complement to the mint oils, such as Peppermint and Wintergreen.
Emotionally, Coriander is the oil of integrity. Most important, it deals with integrity to our self. For those who are susceptible to being trapped in a role of always serving others while neglecting their own needs, Coriander reminds us that we don't need to conform to fit in, if that betrays our True Self. Coriander aligns individuals with their truth, their way of being and living that may be outside the box from others.
Coriander reminds us of our uniqueness and to let that be our gift to the world, which means living in connection with one's spirit. It aligns us with our True Self! With integrity being one of my own top personal values, makes Coriander one essential oil I keep coming back to.
