Amazing Benefits of Coriander

Doterra Essential Oil

Coriander Essential Oil
Coriandrum sativum

Popular across many cultures for various uses, Coriander essential oil is extracted from the seed of the coriander plant. Coriander’s healthful therapeutic benefits, which can be attributed to its extremely high linalool content, range from digestive support to supporting a healthy insulin response.

For aromatic, topical, or internal use.


Historical Uses: Chinese culture has used coriander for piles, dysentery, nausea, toothache, measles and painful hernias.

The Chinese incorporated Coriander into their medical practice as long ago as 207 B.C.E. and believed that Coriander could bestow IMMORTALITY.

In India, Coriander was a remedy for constipation and insomnia, as well as for easing the pain of childbirth. Women consumed the seeds regularly to promote fertility. During the Elizabethan era, candy coated coriander seeds were served as a sweet after meals and to guard against gas. Coriander is also a natural deodorant


Possible Uses: Coriander essential oil may  help with arthritis, anorexia, colic, colds, digestive spasms, diarrhea, flatulence, dyspepsia, gout, flu, general infections, migraine, measles, nausea, muscular aches and pains, neuralgia, nervous exhaustion, poor circulation, piles, rheumatism, oily skin and stiffness. It may help control pain related to menstruation.

Many individuals who have been diagnosed with diabetes benefit from ingesting Coriander on a regular basis. Patients have reported when acute stress or sustained tension starts a high ―sugar‖ response – applying Coriander directly over Pancreas and Stomach mitigates the symptoms (profuse sweating, dizziness, disorientation, etc.) almost immediately.

Coriander is a circulatory stimulant and encourages the release of toxins from the body, thereby improving conditions such as arthritis, chronic fatigue syndrome, gout, rheumatism and a sluggish lymph system.


Properties: analgesic, antibacterial, anti-depressive, antifungal, anti-infectious, anti-inflammatory (topical application) antioxidant, anti-rheumatic, antispasmodic, stimulant (cardiac, circulatory, nervous systems)


Mental Benefits: Can provide a calming influence to those suffering from shock or fear when diffused into the area. Can be stimulating to those who are suffering from low energy when diffused. Comforts the intellect and uplifts the mind benefiting those who are both worried and emotionally bereft.

It improves memory and mental functions. It promotes Happiness and Joy by reducing worry. This is considered a protective oil and helps to increase feelings of spontaneity and passion and seeks to achieve stability without denying Joy. Coriander seed oil is ideally suited, therefore, to complex, creative individuals who find it difficult to cope with predictability and routine.


How to use:

  • Topically – Can be applied neat to skin at reflex points and/or directly to area of concern.
  • Aromatically – Diffuse.
  • Internally – Categorized as GRAS for human consumption by the FDA.

The aroma is soothing to some and may be used for its soothing properties by diffusion. Consider as a rotation oil used with other oils to add variety for not only the aromatic benefit but the antibacterial properties as well.

It may be applied directly (neat) for help with muscle pain or for rheumatism and directly on the abdomen or back for digestive difficulties. For digestive difficulties, it may be taken internally mixed with water or other liquids with honey or agave added to sweeten the taste.

All Natural Diabetes Support

DoTerra Essential Oils Support For:


Diabetes is a chronic disease marked by high levels of sugar in the blood.

Insulin is a hormone produced by the pancreas to control blood sugar. Diabetes can be caused by too little insulin, resistance to insulin, or both.

To understand diabetes, it is important to first understand the normal process by which food is broken down and used by the body for energy. Several things happen when food is digested:

  • A sugar called glucose enters the bloodstream. Glucose is a source of fuel for the body.

  • An organ called the pancreas makes insulin. The role of insulin is to move glucose from the bloodstream into muscle, fat, and liver cells, where it can be used as fuel.

People with diabetes have high blood sugar. This is because:

  • Their pancreas does not make enough insulin

  • Their muscle, fat, and liver cells do not respond to insulin normally

  • Both of the above

There are three major types of diabetes:

  • Type 1 diabetes is usually diagnosed in childhood. Many patients are diagnosed when they are older than age 20. In this disease, the body makes little or no insulin. Daily injections of insulin are needed. The exact cause is unknown. Genetics, viruses, and autoimmune problems may play a role.

  • Type 2 diabetes is far more common than type 1. It makes up most of diabetes cases. It usually occurs in adulthood, but young people are increasingly being diagnosed with this disease. The pancreas does not make enough insulin to keep blood glucose levels normal, often because the body does not respond well to insulin. Many people with type 2 diabetes do not know they have it, although it is a serious condition. Type 2 diabetes is becoming more common due to increasing obesity and failure to exercise.

  • Gestational diabetes is high blood glucose that develops at any time during pregnancy in a woman who does not have diabetes. Women who have gestational diabetes are at high risk of type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease later in life.

Diabetes affects more than 20 million Americans. Over 40 million Americans have pre-diabetes (early type 2 diabetes).

Risk Factors: Over 45, family history,heart disease, high cholesterol, obesity, not getting enough exercise, ovary diseases, and poor diet.

Those with Diabetes notice: Blurry vision, Excessive thirst,  fatigue, frequent urination, hunger, weight loss in spite of increased appetite.

I am off my diabetic medication due to Type II Diabetes

When I started with doTERRA almost a year ago & began taking the LifeLong Wellness (LLW) supplements, I was on medication for type 2 Diabetes.  I was taking Actos & my A1C level was 6.3. (The A1C is a blood test that measures blood sugars over a 3 month period. Normal is below 6.0)   I also added 5 drops of Basil in a capsule & when Coriander became available, I added 5 drops of that with the Basil.   My A1C has dropped to 5.7 & I am off of the medication!!  Hooray for my doTERRA! –Chris B.

Coriander oil has dropped my sugars amazingly

I started doTERRA oils to control my sugars, and it works! I’m amazed at how my sugars have dropped using Coriander oil.-Jeanette B

My husband’s blood sugar level dropped 20 points after using geranium and ylang ylang

My husband has Type 2 diabetes.  I bought geranium and ylang ylang for him as suggested in the Modern Essentials book for helping with blood sugar.  One morning after he’d taken his blood sugar level, he decided to put a drop of the two oils on each of his feet.  He waited for a couple of minutes and then retested his blood sugar levels.  To his amazement, his blood sugar level had dropped 20 points!  Machine error?  I don’t think so!   Lana S.

My mother’s gangrene was gone in 6 weeks to the amazement of my dad

I want to share an exciting experience that happened with my family. My mom has had Type II diabetes for years.  Unfortunately I was not blessed with doTERRA EO’s during those years and helplessly watched as her legs progressively turned red to purple to black.  This spring she was diagnosed with gangrene on her toe.  The doctors emphatically said there was to be no moisture on her toe or the gangrene could turn to a gas which would then rapidly spread into her foot and leg and ultimately would need to be amputated.  My dad is old-school and insisted on doing what the doctors said and would not be persuaded to use EOs….until I found some articles about how soldiers during World War II used only essential oils for gangrene because they couldn’t get any antibiotics.  That convinced my dad to think outside the box of traditional medicine. With the counsel of Dr. Hill to use a drop of frankincense, lavender and melaleuca each, my dad applied them to her toe 3x/day.  In 6 weeks half her toenail fell off and after another 6 weeks the rest of the toenail fell off.  To my dad’s astonishment there was absolutely NO gangrene!  It is healed and healthy. The power of doTERRA oils not only allowed her body to heal itself but they brought life to something that was  dead!!  We are thankful for the “gift of the earth” that has blessed our lives and hope you will share this story with others so they may also enjoy the blessings doTERRA essential oils can bring. -Cheryl B.
