Coriandrum Sativum (Coriander) Oil
Coriander (Coriandrum sativum), also known as Cilantro, is a warm weather herb native to Southern Europe and the Western Mediterranean. Coriander leaves are similar to Italian Parsley in appearance, however the plant is notable for its distinct and potent fragrance. The leaves, roots and seeds are used in many cuisines to flavour salads, meats, soups and other dishes. These can also be steam-distilled to produce a fragrant essential oil.
