Parsley oil is extracted from the green leaves and aromatic seeds of the fragrant biennial herb Petroselinum crispum, which grows in rural India. The seeds actually contain the most essential oil, although the whole plant, including its leaves, can be used to make essential oil.
Native to the Mediterranean region, parsley is one of the best known and most widely used herbs, both for garnish and for cooking, because of its deep green, ruffled or curly leaves. Its name is derived from the Greek word petros, meaning stone, as this plant often grows in rocky terrain. As a culinary herb, it has many known benefits including its ability to soothe the stomach and offer some remedy for urinary tract problems.
