Coriander essential oil comes from the coriander plant, also known as Chinese parsley or cilantro, commonly used in Asian, Indian, and Mexican cooking for its unique aroma and flavor. When used as an essential oil, coriander offers various benefits for both the body and mind.

The coriander plant, native to Southwestern Asia, Southern Europe, and Northern Africa, grows up to 3 feet tall with feathery leaves, long stems, and small round seeds. These seeds are steam distilled to create the essential oil. The name "coriander" comes from the Greek word "koriannon," meaning "bug," due to its strong, bug-like aroma. It shares some chemical similarities with lavender.

Coriander seeds are harvested and steam distilled to produce 100% pure essential oil. This method vaporizes the volatile compounds within the seeds.

In Great Britain during the Bronze Age, it flavored barley and preserved meats. Today, it's used in various cuisines and even in beer and gin fermentation. In aromatherapy, coriander essential oil relaxes the mind and can soothe sore muscles when applied topically.
