INFOS AND INTERESTING FACTS. 

Cilantro essential oil is a wonderfully fresh, highly green and herbal aroma that is loved by many “Aqua” types of perfumes crafters and that has convinced even people who despise Cilantro in food. A perfect addition to any refreshing diffuser blend or natural perfume composition. Cilantro essential oil is extracted from the green leaves of the coriander herb, while Coriander essential oil is extracted from the dried seeds of the same plant. Compared to Coriander seed oil, Cilantro aroma is greener, fresher and with less earthy under tones. Cilantro essential oil is always added in small quantities in massages to help ease muscular and joints discomforts or diffusion blends to help appease anxious minds.  

 

MORE INFO: CILANTRO VS CORIANDER SEED OILS

On chemical analysis, the essential oils extracted from the leaves and the seeds differ quite strongly.

While both Cilantro and Coriander seed essential oil share anti-infectious, digestive and anti-inflammatory properties, it is the Coriander Seed oil, higher in linalool molecules, that is usually chosen in massages blends to support various digestive concerns.
