    1. Most of the conifers would work well in this blend. You could also try Bergamot, Spearmint, or even Rosemary ct 1,8-cineole. I hope this helps JM!

  1. I love the smell of coriander seed, but didn’t know what to use it for therapeutically. It smells good in the diffuser with Tranquil. I want to try a lip balm with coriander and cardamom; I was told they are great together. I’m going to try this Making Memories blend in my diffuser today, thank you!

    1. Jay, coriander seed is one of my most favorite oils; I carry it with me in a personal inhaler and it really helps keep my mood and focus up. I have never tried it with Tranquil or cardamom, but I absolutely will! If you do end up making that lip balm, let us know how it turns out! Personally, I think it blends wonderfully with bergamot. Thank you so much for sharing!

  2. I’ve been looking for various oils to make inhalers for upset stomach and motion sickness. Even this master blend looks like it might good for that! Thanks!

    1. Janice, we are so glad this master blend will be able to help you out! Let us know if it was able to provide any relief; thank you for commenting!

  3. Coriander Seed looks like an amazing oil. Can’t wait to try it out. Great idea using the felt for a car diffuser.

    1. It can certainly stimulate appetite but personally, I don’t find that it causes any problems 🙂 Hopefully, it won’t be bothersome for you either Pat!

  4. I never even considered this one until I read this post. The Master Blend sounds fabulous, and I appreciate that it is kid friendly.

  5. I used Coriander Seed in my diffuser last night with Lavender, Ylang Ylang, and Patchouli – it made for a great night’s sleep!

  6. Thanks for sharing this. I would have never thought about this oil. Love the smell of coriander, but I associate it with food! Cant wait to order it!

    1. You’re welcome Stacey! Stay tuned for future Spotlights so we can help introduce more Oils in the future. This one has lots of benefits so we hope you enjoy it!

  7. The Making Memories blend looks amazing 😀

    Thank you for always putting blending recommendations on your oil descriptions – it is so helpful!

  8. I made this and it smells so good! I’m going to let it sit for a couple days before I try it in the diffuser.

  9. I use coriander in a sleep blend for my kids with ho wood and sweet orange. It is such a light, sweet, floral smell.

  10. Just mixed this up and am Diffusing. So clean and crisp! Might be the new favorite morning oil, and certainly good for my diffuser necklace for the occasional night call I must work. Thanks!

  11. I’m thinking of trying this for my mother who has dementia. I don’t know that it would help her memory because she’s pretty bad in that area, but I’m looking for something to try to calm her a little in the evenings. She usually ends up crying and saying she wants to go home. She is still living in the same house she has lived in since 1962. I’m very intrigued about the possibility of this stimulating her appetite. She has lost 40 lbs since August and she really didn’t need to lose any weight. She’s skin and bones because she never wants to eat. It’s all we can do to get her to drink a few Boost shakes each day. Do you have any other tips? I am so sorry for such a long post! It’s just such an awful disease.

    1. Natalie, we are so happy you have some ideas for Coriander! Personally, it’s a favorite of mine. It has such a sweet, peppery smell that is just great by itself or blended with other oils. It is a great go-to during the day, since it helps with mood and mental focus. You may even like it in a personal inhaler so you can keep it with you all day. Thank you for sharing!

    1. We hope you love it, Bev! Coriander Seed is a personal favorite of mine — I love having it with me in a personal inhaler during the day 🙂

  12. I just read “spotlight of the week” I love this! I have missed the other spotlights (crazy last few weeks), I am wondering if I can review the other 3 spotlights on this website? I love learning about oils, so fascinating!

  13. Are used this blend when I had food poisoning. It seemed to help some ( I did go and get medical attention) but this was great to help when my stomach was really upset

  14. I have everything I need BUT the Corriander for that blend, and I almost ordered it this last order. Lame. Guess it’ll be going in my next order!

  15. I had no idea there was a Coriander Seed oil! Does it smell like cilantro? If so this is going to be on my wishlist for my next purchase! And who knew it helps with clear skin and mental focus…added bonus!
