Ingredient Feature: Parsley
The Splendid Sprig
Parsley. You knew it first as the lackluster “green” that remained on your plate after a dinner out. Or perhaps, after venturing a taste, you left with it lodged brightly between your teeth.
This long-tarnished garnish has a big-snooze reputation. But the bountiful leafy green herb is worth a second look, and how.
A profuse grower that prefers to bask in part sun, parsley has a fresh, clean taste, herbaceous with hints of lemon, anise and pepper. In addition to its many culinary graces, it is linked to numerous health benefits. For instance, it lends its natural antibacterial might to Mandarin Coriander, our squeaky clean home fragrance collection.
Similarly, parsley sweetens the breath (hence its appearance on your plate) thanks to its high chlorophyll levels. It’s a bold source of antioxidant vitamins A and C, fiber, potassium, magnesium, calcium, niacin, riboflavin and iron. Also, it’s been credited with offering anti-inflammatory properties and boosting immune systems.
What’s not to love?
Parsley lends its natural antibacterial might to Mandarin Coriander, our squeaky clean home fragrance collection.
Said to be native to Mediterranean climes, parsley is related to celery and comes in two types—curly and flat—the latter of which is known as Italian parsley. It has long been an herbal staple in Greek and Italian cuisine, later traveling north with the Roman invasion of England.
Perhaps because of that invasion, an old English superstition asserts that anyone who transplants parsley will run in to bad luck. So plant it, enjoy it—but, if you believe in such things—keep it rooted in one spot.
You can invite the plentiful benefits of parsley into your personal surroundings by using Mandarin Coriander. These carefully blended products help you revive interior spaces with nature’s essential oils, nutrient-rich botanicals and safe, biodegradable ingredients. Individually and in harmony, they release the fresh, bright citrus scent of cold-pressed mandarin oil, just-peeled oranges and crisp, aromatic coriander to spread a sense of inviting freshness throughout your home, making it a more welcoming place for all who join you there.
To experience this fresh, clean, green home fragrance collection, visit your local specialty retailer or check out Mandarin Coriander here. And fear not: you’re welcome to place—and re-place—it wherever you like!
