Coriander Seed E.O
Adam Michael has this to say “Coriander is an attractive plant of the Umbelliferae family, which grows either wild or cultivated in the Far East, Spain, North Africa and Russia. Some plants are found growing wild in parts of England, where they have self-seeded from cultivated plants. The leaves, when crushed, give off an extremely unpleasant odour which the ancient Greeks found reminiscent of a squashed bedbug, hence the plant’s name which is derived from ‘koris’, the Greek for bug! Fortunately, the seeds have an altogether different aroma, very pleasant, fresh and spicy, and the essential oil which is distilled from them is very true to the smell of a freshly crushed seed.
The main chemical constituents of coriander seed oil are coriandrol (60% +), pinene, geraniol and traces of phellandrene, dipentene, terpinene, cymene and borneol. Like all the members of this big plant family (caraway, dill, fennel, etc.) Coriander stimulates and aids digestion, and prevents flatulence.”
