Guide - Fresh Coriander Leaf EO
The Story :
Coriander is a plant generally measuring between 30 and 60 cm whose foliage is green to light green. Its smell is particular, often described as “foul”, and reminiscent of the smell of bedbugs.
Coriander is an aromatic plant grown worldwide and used in culinary preparations. However, its origin remains uncertain, and it grows wild in southern Europe and the Middle East.
However, this plant was found in Ancient Egypt, particularly in certain tombs and burials, which proves that it was already cultivated at the time for its many properties. The same is true for Ancient Greece, where it was still cultivated and used.
Its name comes from the Latin coriandrum and the Greek koriandron, which refers to the bug, in reference to its smell.
