Cilantro: The Oil of Releasing Control

Cilantro offers digestive support and facilitates detoxification on a physical level but also on an emotional level. Similar to Coriander essential oil, which is distilled from the seeds of the same plant, Cilantro also offers relief from stress through the release of issues buried in the body, heart and soul. Cilantro will help the individual shed what’s no longer serving them or in disharmony with their True Self.

People who love to obsessively control others or manage their surrounding environment can benefit from Cilantro because it can ease all the worry and mental strain they go through. These individuals might even have a hoarding mentality where they become clinging or obsessed over material possessions. They are also holding on to negative patterns, emotions and issues that betray their authentic Self.

Cilantro offers the needed energetic support in helping a person honour their boundaries, find courage, process the events of life, and stay true to their True Self. It facilitates an emotional cleansing and encourages the release of all worry and control. The person then feels liberated and lightened from heavy burdens.

Usage Tips

Can cause skin irritation, especially on sensitive or already irritated skin. Always test for skin sensitivity prior to widespread use and use on the feet when possible. Excessive use of any oil can lead to skin sensitization. Keep out of eyes, ears, or nose. Not all oils are created equal, so test brands carefully, and never use an oil in a way not recommended by its maker.
