Cilantro was one of the Old Testament's herbal stars, eaten at Passover celebrations and enjoyed as a gift from God. Today, Cilantro is one of the most widely enjoyed herbs and is cherished in cuisines across the globe. Cilantro Essential Oil has GRAS status with the FDA, and one or two drops added just before serving is a ready replacement for fresh Cilantro in many dishes, including guacamole, soups, spring rolls, and stir fries.
The fresh, bright scent of Cilantro is a natural for light and clean scented colognes, body oils, and deodorants. The oil is a mother lode of monoterpenes making it a magnificent choice for pore-perfecting and complexion clearing serums, and it is especially excellent when combined with Immortelle, Rose Otto, or Ylang.
In oral care, Cilantro Essential Oil can replace Peppermint or Coriander essential oils as a bacteria-balancing breath balm. The gorgeously green aroma combined with citrus and Lavender in a diffuser or home cleaning solution invites a calming, cleansing, and clarifying atmosphere.
