Coriander Leaf Essential Oil
Freshen up your home and support a healthy immune system with Coriander Leaf Essential Oil. Great for DIY cleaners or adding to a deodorizing diffuser blend, this herbal oil offers powerful cleansing and purifying properties that can help keep the family healthy. Plus, its pungent, stimulating aroma may encourage feelings of focus and promote memory retention. When diluted and applied topically, Coriander Leaf offers a slight cooling sensation, making this a great addition to refreshing massage oil blends.
The essential oil is steam-distilled from delicate, feathery Coriander leaves, which are most often referred to as the Spanish translation of Coriander, Cilantro, in the United States. While this essential oil may give off a bright and joyful aroma for cilantro lovers, it can just as easily be a repulsive aroma to others, sometimes referred to as soapy, metal-like, or musty. This curiously conflicting scent (and taste) perception is due to some individuals having an olfactory sensitivity to aldehydes, which Coriander leaves are rich in. With approximately 70% of Coriander Leaf Oil containing a variety of aldehydes, people with this sensitivity will likely have a very unique aromatic experience with this essential oil.
