Coriander Essential Oil 10ml
This annual or biennial plant is a native of Morocco and grows to about 1 meter (3 feet) in height. It has sparse, fine, feathery leaves and pinkish/white flowers. The brownish, globose seeds have a disagreeable smell until they ripen, when they take on their spicy aroma. The bright green delicate leaves, umbels of lace-like white flowers are followed by a mass of green (turning brown) round seeds. These seeds are hard and egg-shaped, borne in pairs, which do not separate. The Oleoresin has a strong aroma of coriander.
Sweet, spicy, slightly fruity, herbaceous warm smell.

Coriander essential oil is indigenous to Egypt and has been in use there for over 3,000 years. Both ancient Egyptians and Greeks believed coriander had aphrodisiac properties. Its name was said to be dated back to the Greek word 'Koris' which means bed bug due to the fact that the plants smells strongly like these malodorous insects. In Ancient Egypt, pharaohs were buried with coriander seeds, and it was one of the plants that hung in the famous Gardens of Babylon.
