Coriander oil is extracted by the SCFE Co2 extraction method, from coriander seeds. In the SCFE-Co2 extraction method, carbon dioxide in fluid state is the solvent used. Besides carbon dioxide, propane is also used as a solvent under conditions which are sub and supercritical.
Specific pressure and temperature used gives it unique properties between liquid and gas to achieve optimum coriander oil extraction. Many of the volatile components in the oil remain preserved due to the Co2 extraction process used. In traditional extraction methods, volatile components are not retained. Co2 extraction method makes the process of attaining maximum purity, easier.
Coriander oil is derived from Coriandrum Sativum. It has a woodsy, spicy, sweet, light, warm, inviting and sharp aroma. It blends well with a number of essential oils namely, clove bud, bergamot, ylang ylang, black pepper, vetiver, cardamom, tangerine, cinnamon bark, sandalwood, clary sage, ravensara aromatic, clove bud, pine, ginger fresh, cypress, jasmine sambac, and frankincense etc.
