And more.....
Coriander essential oil is distilled from the seeds, dry fruit or dhania of the plant. Coriander refers specifically to the seeds of the plant where as Cilantro or Chinese Parsley really refers to just the leaves.
Coriander’s ability to lower glucose and insulin levels has been studied in Egypt.  
The Cairo University found that it does in fact normalize insulin levels and support the pancreas! 
Coriander essential oil also can be used to release emotions related to addictions and fears; especially those of the heart. Excessive eating, alcohol and sugar cravings all fall in that category and can be released using this oil!
Coriander oil is rated as GRAS(generally regarded as safe) by the FDA and can be safely used for internal consumption.
*ORAC stands for Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity. It tells you the antioxidant capacity of a food item. Antioxidants have shown to reduce the risk of age related conditions and cancer! This was developed by the USDA researchers. For instance: Oranges = 750; Clove = 1,078,700. Yep...that's a lot....go buy you some Clove too!
