Coriander is a commonly used domestic remedy, valued especially for its effect on the digestive system, treating flatulence, diarrhoea and colic.
It settles spasms in the gut and counters the effects of nervous tension.
The seed is aromatic, carminative, expectorant, narcotic, stimulant and stomachic.
It is most often used with active purgatives in order to disguise their flavour and combat their tendency to cause gripe.
The raw seed is chewed to stimulate the flow of gastric juices and to cure foul breath and will sweeten the breath after garlic has been eaten.
Some caution is advised, however, because if used too freely the seeds become narcotic.
Externally the seeds have been used as a lotion or have been bruised and used as a poultice to treat rheumatic pains.
The essential oil is used in aromatherapy.
