Coriander is a fragrant, exotic oil that has been used for thousands of years in Asian countries. Coriander can stimulate the appetite and is excellent in relieving occasional digestive upset. It helps elevate mood, calms frazzled nerves, helps with mental focus and aids in relaxation before sleep. Coriander oil is safe to use on congested or blemished skin.
To help reduce tension, add 3 drops coriander and 3 drops sweet orange to ½ cup Epsom salt. Add this mix to 1 ounce milk or 1 teaspoon carrier oil, and run under warm water for a fragrant, relaxing bath.
