Product Abstract: Coriander is a delicate annual herb with several branches having lacy leaves with jagged edges. The plant grows to a height of 1 to 3 feet with small pinkish-white flowers. The aromatic seeds are round and yellowish brown when ripe. Its name was from the Greek word koris, or 'bed bug' owing to the fact that the globose seeds smell like these insects until they ripen and emit a pleasant, spicy aroma. Coriander is indigenous to Egypt and the seeds were found in the tomb of Tutankhamen. It was one of the plants that were grown in the famous Hanging Gardens of Babylon. Both ancient Egyptians and Greeks believed coriander had aphrodisiac properties and used the seeds to flavour their wines. In 1510 the Benedictine monks documented using them as an ingredient in their herbal tonic known as Benedictine, the Carthusian Monks used them to make Chartreuse in the 1740's, and the Carmelite order in France used coriander seeds with lemon balm, lemon zest, angelica root and nutmeg in their 17th century eau de toilette known as Carmelite Waters. In India, the seeds are still used for cooking.

I am very pleased with the scent of this EO. I added it to my mixes to add more definition. I would not hesitate to purchase it again from ND.

I'm a big fan of the scent of coriander, but not the taste. So using it in a diffuser allows me to get the smell without having to cook something w/ it :P

Quite an imposing scent, but nice in small doses.

Earthy, lemony, and just perfect! I like the scent of this oil. Use in moderation as it does seem to have a slight warming effect.

Like Sherif, I wasn't wild about this scent out of the bottle, so I didn't use it for a few months, but now I find the scent very pleasant. I don't know if this is due to Coriander's reputation for improving with age or simply some change in my way of experiencing it. (I've only had this oil for a few months, which seems like too short a time for the fragrance to change radically...). When I initially smelled it, this oil seemed quite pungent, perhaps a little smoky or acrid. Now it reminds me of yeast bread baking in the oven. (No, I am not confusing this with Caraway)! The scent is mild and pleasant, and seems to unify other spice oils when used in combination. As for the oil's therapeutic properties, the jury is still out for me. I've personally used this for migraines in a blend of oils to enhance the scent, then applying the oil at the appropriate ganglia and accupressure points. This has been marginally helpful, but without more empirical evidence or medical proof that this oil eases migraine pain, I won't vouch for its healing properties in this regard.

I disagree with the previous poster. While age does improve Coriander this oil is VERY nice. Perhaps the difference in a lot number is why mine is better, however it is VERY lovely and I intend to use this in my next perfume blend.

I personally was not pleased with the scent of this oil. It's scent gave me, my wife, and my mom shivers. DO NOT GET FOR THE SCENT! For aromatherapists, this oil is exquisite. Does not smell sweet at all. My rating is strictly based on the attractability of the scent of this oil, since i am a natural perfumer.

This is just an addition to my other review, as I raved about all it's uses and never named any. So, here are some of the ways I use this wonderful oil and this one's at a great price! Though it may be stupefying in large doses. Use in moderation for aches and pains, anorexia, arthritis, debility, infections, measles, migraine, nausea, neuralgia, piles, poor circulation, rheumatism, stiffness, water retention. (Also known as Coriander Seed and Chinese Parsley.) Good quality, great price.

One of my very favorite scents...especially blended with rose. This one is a must have for a true aromatherapist as it is so very useful for many things. You'll be suprised at all of its wonderful uses. I love this coriander better than any I've used in the past.
