Cilantro essential oil, also known as Coriander Leaf Oil or Chinese Parsley Oil, is produced from the leaves of the culinary herb Coriandrum sativum that is a member of the Apiaceae (formerly known as Umbelliferae) botanical family.  The fresh leaves are commonly used to flavor dishes such as salsa, salads, and soups. Coriander Seed Oil is also produced from the same plant, however, the chemistry and the aroma of both oils are very different. 


Cilantro essential oil has a unique, herbaceous, almost celery-like scent, and just a little bit will go a long way when included in an essential oil blend.  It is commonly combined with citrus and fir oils to create a fresh, invigorating aroma for diffusing. It can also be used as part of a soothing massage blend.


Usage ideas:

  • Add a few drops of essential oils to a diffuser, cotton round, or a tissue.

  • Add 5-15 drops to 1 oz. of your choice of carrier oils to make a massage oil.

For convenience on the go…

  • Properly dilute with your choice of carrier oils in a roller bottle.

  • Add up to a total of 15 drops of essential oils to a personal aromatic inhaler (aroma stick).
