Coriander Seed essential oil is considered non-toxic, non-irritant and non-sensitizing in small doses. In large doses, it does have a stupefying (dulling of the senses) effect so be sure to be aware of your ingestion quantity and rate. Please consult a physician before using Coriander if you are pregnant.
