Cathy’s Comments: This Coriander’s aroma is pleasant, sweet and surprisingly candy-like ,with subtle fruity notes. Coriander’s warm and dry nature can stimulate appetite, ease indigestion (through circulating chi in the stomach and intestines), and relive neuralgia. It is useful as both an antispasmodic and anti-inflammatory, a gentle addition to rubs for aching muscles (through circulating chi to disperse painful obstruction). It is more gently stimulating that most spice oils and is great for easing worry and anxious over-thinking.
