Coriander Seed Essential Oil Uses
Coriander Seed Essential Oil is an invigorating, stimulating oil. It is often noted for its use in aiding digestion and in assisting with aches, pains and arthritis.
American College of Healthcare Sciences principal Dorene Petersen has undertaken research regarding cognitive and brain health. She presents that Coriander Seed Oil shows promise for management of neurodegenerative diseases. [Dorene Petersen, Presentation: Clinical Use of Aromatherapy for Brain Health: 7 Essential Oils.

In addition to its therapeutic benefits, Coriander Seed Essential Oil is a slightly fruity, spicy oil that is well suited for use within natural fragrancing applications. I love it year around, but it is especially lovely to use during the fall and winter seasons. Some consider it an aphrodisiac.
