Cilantro essential oil uses include using it as a detoxifying agent to help the body remove toxic levels of heavy metals (like mercury used in teeth fillings). It can be beneficial for Arthritis, colds, colic, diarrhea, exhaustion, flatulence, flu, infections, migraine, muscular aches and pains, nausea, neuralgia, poor circulation, rheumatism, stiffness. It’s also great in lots of recipes – try it in guacamole, lime shrimp, fajitas, tortilla soup, etc.
Cilantro oil is extracted from the leaves of the plant by a steam distillation. The oil itself is an antioxidant that helps control free radicals. It has long been known that cilantro also helps in cases of indigestion. Like other essential oils such as eugenol (the essential oil of clove) it has bactericidal and fungicidal properties. It may also have a chelating effect on heavy metals. (That is it will leach heavy metals out of the system).
Coriander has been long valued in Ayurvedic medicine for its anti-inflammatory properties and has recently been studied for its cholesterol-lowering and effects and use in type 2 diabetes. It is also used in skin diseases, digestive disorders, and cough and cold remedies.
Cilantro is the usual name for the leaf of the plant and is used in Asian, Mexican, Indian, Tex Mex, Caribbean, and North African cuisines.
Cilantro is more than a culinary spice, it is a naturally healing food. When cilantro is added to the diet along with other natural immune system boosters like garlic, omega-3 fatty acids from cold-water fish, or seed and nut oils, chronic infections can be eliminated. Many health disorders, like Alzheimer’s, diabetes, and fibromyalgia have been linked to high levels of heavy metals such as mercury and aluminum in the body. There are both scientific studies, and anecdotal evidence to support cilantro’s reputation as a powerful depurative. Yoshiaki Omura, MD, director of medical research at the Heart Disease Foundation and president of the International College of Acupuncture in New York, reported that after finding he had been heavily exposed to mercury, he accidentally discovered that when cilantro is taken in a lightly cooked form it causes a massive excretion of mercury via the urine. Cilantro is a tasty, healthy herb, easy to grow, and readily available at most grocery stores, try making your own fresh soups and pesto from the fresh herb.
