Coriander is a fragrant annual herb which is native to Europe and Western Asia.

The flowers develop into edible seeds which are dried and used as a spice or made into essential oil. The leaves are also edible, and are referred to as cilantro, but they differ from the cilantro which is commonly used in Mexican cooking.

Pure essential oils are highly concentrated plant extracts. Do not use them undiluted, or in the eyes or mucus membranes. If applying an essential oil to the skin, always dilute it with a proper carrier oil and test on a small patch of skin before applying to a large area. Do not take them internally except under the direction of a qualified professional trained in Aromatherapy. Always familiarize yourself with the safety, contraindications and proper preparation of each essential oil before use. Note that when using essential oils for children and the elderly, very low concentrations should be used. Keep all essential oils away from children and pets.
