Product Overview

Our Organic Coriander Seed essential oil has a powerful, sweet, somewhat spicy, warm, diffusive aroma, with a lively woody/peppery top note and a stunning balsamic undertone reminiscent of Rosewood. Its very pure and wonderful aroma is true to freshly crushed Coriander seeds. Coriandrum sativum's familiar aromatic oil comes from an annual small herb native to southeastern Europe; it grows not only wild but is cultivated extensively all over the world.[1] A second aromatic oil extracted from the leaves of the same plant is known as Cilantro. Together, they are regarded in many parts of the world as two of the most unique and signature gourmand aromatics.

Coriander Seed oil contains between 60-87% of the ubiquitous and gentle monoterpene alcohol, (+)-linalool (aka coriandrol). With its characteristic mild, warm and woody aroma, it is no surprise that this versatile constituent appears in many essential oils Very similar in aroma to Coriander Seed, Rosewood essential oil (up to 90% linalool) is not to our knowledge being produced sustainably – a tragic casualty of the logging and furniture industries. Coriander Seed provides a generous quantity of linalool in a more easily available and less environmentally damaging manner.

In perfumery, Coriander Seed is used for its excellent fixative qualities and blends well with other essential oils (especially to provide a masculine note), including Clary Sage, Jasmine, Neroli, Cypress, and Cinnamon. Whereas nothing can replace the great essential oil of Rosewood (from Aniba roseodora, listed by IUCN as a threatened species[2]) in formulas, our beautiful Coriander Seed CO2 has a stunning balsamic undertone very much like Rosewood in aroma but with an amazing tenacity that Rosewood lacks.
