Coriander Essential Oil
Botanical Name: Coriandrum sativum
Steam distilled seeds
Linalool: 68% -the important terpinol level!
Scent: sweet, spicy, like a herbaceous cinnamon; blends well with bergaptene-free bergamot, cinnamon bark and ginger
Properties: analgesic, aphrodisiac, antispasmodic, deodorant, digestive, fungicidal, stimulant.
Use: Added to henna paste to break down the henna plant cellulose, which gives you a better lawsone dye release. Please don't add more than 15ml essential oil per 100g of henna powder. Without a proper carrier oil, essential oils should be limited.
Can also be used for aromatherapy.
Do *NOT* diffuse essential oils if you own a bird! The molecules are too small & can coat the alveoli of the lungs, causing pneumonia.
