Coriander - The Oil of Integrity
Coriander is the oil of integrity, specifically integrity with one’s self. The person in need of Coriander oil may be trapped in a cycle of serving others while neglecting their own needs. They may also have a strong need to do what is right or correct. Often the mind’s perspective of the “right” way is too limited and seen from only one perspective. Coriander reminds individuals that there is more than one way to do something, and that fitting in often requires betraying the True Self.

 Coriander moves the individual from doing things for the acceptance of others to honoring and living from the True Self. There are as many ways of being as there are people in the world. Each soul must learn its own way of living and being. Coriander gives courage to step out of “the box” and risk being who one really is.

Coriander teaches that each individual is a gift to the world with something unique, which no one else has to offer. Only we can be and express our uniqueness. Integrity with one’s self means living in connection with what one’s spirit urges and directs. Coriander shifts individuals from needing others’ acceptance to honoring and living from the True Self.
