Coriander, although categorised within the ‘spicy’ family of essential oils is significantly milder than the likes of Clove, Cardamom and Cinnamon and ideal to use for people with sensitive skin types. Coriander seeds are used in the extraction process for this oil, which are taken from the plant once the flowers, or ‘umbels’ die back at the end of the season. This fragrant oil can be used to support the body and mind in numerous ways, including the easing of digestive complaints, the boosting of circulation and to help the body to recover from viral infection. The warming and calming fragrance is also beneficial for people struggling with mental exhaustion, anxiety or sleep deprivation. Try blending in a diffuser with a citrus oil to help soothe nervous tension.
