Egyptian herb coriander


(coriandrum sativum)


This herb and its seeds were commonly used by the ancient Egyptians. Coriander seeds have been found in Egyptian tombs, and are still used by Egyptian Copts today, for medicinal purposes and for cooking. It was also traditionally reputed to be an aphrodisiac.


Coriander has pain relieving properties and is useful for headaches, muscle pain and stiffness, arthritis and rheumatism. Coriander is useful as a tea, because of its helpful effects on the digestive tract, and is good for increasing appetite, and relieving nausea, diarrhea, flatulence and indigestion. It is reputed to enhance circulation and relieve fluid retention.The leaves are used in spicy cuisine the world over, both for flavor and to moderate the effects of other spices and peppers on the stomach. The seeds are one of the ingredients of curry.


Do not use to excess


Be sure of the identity of any plant before you use it. If a preparation makes you sick or gives you a rash, don't use it, and throw it away! If your condition does not improve, see your doctor. Be sure to let your physician know  EVERYTHING that you are taking!
