Traditional Uses

Corriander botanicalCoriander has been a popular aromatic stimulant and culinary spice cultivated for over 3,000 years. Mentioned in numerous medieval and Greek medical texts, Coriander is also indicated as a medicine in the Bible, and early Sanskrit writings. Indigenous to Israel, Coriander was compared by the Ancient Hebrews to the manna provided by God to the Children of Israel and was one of the bitter herbs eaten during Passover.

The Ancient Egyptians believed it to be the 'secret to happiness' and thus combined it with fresh garlic in wine and drunk as an aphrodisiac. Coriander seeds were found in the tombs of Ramses II and Tutankhamen. The seeds and leaves are widely used in Ayurvedic medicine. A featured herb used in Traditional Chinese Medicine as a tonic of the Stomach and Heart, the herb in Ancient China was thought to promote longevity and ease pain.
