One of the Old Testament's chief herbal stars, coriander was eaten at Passover and celebrated as a gift from God. The ancient Romans indulged in coriander wine, while the Egyptians buried their dead with the aromatic seeds. When coriander seeds are crushed, they release that wonderful, fragrant aroma.
So what had the Romans, Egyptians, Hebrews, ancient Indian sages, and ancient Chinese masters in such a state? Coriander encourages a state of peaceful tranquility. We love to add a drop to salad dressings and Mexican, Asian, and Latin cuisine to boost the cilantro flavor.
The monoterpene in this oil indicates success for skin care especially for pore cleansing and complexion balance. Add this gorgeous green-tang into smoothing skin serums with immortelle, rose otto, and ylang.
"Regardless of its reputation as a love potion, fourteenth-century nuns included coriander in their Carmelite water. It remained popular for complexion care for the next four centuries and
eventually was produced as cologne.

"It [coriander] is generally relaxing... because of its high linalool content this oil is tonifying and strengthening, it can sometimes be successfully used to replace rosewood."
