Spices/herbs are some of the very most nutrient-dense and antioxidant-rich foods you can get, and we always recommend that you grow your own, since you’ll then know for certain that it was farmed correctly. Try to grow cilantro in spring or fall. Space the seeds about one-quarter inches apart from one another. Water the soil only when you notice that it’s going dry.
Cilantro can take up to a month to grow up to about six inches, when it can be harvested. When you’re ready to harvest, make sure that the seeds are nice and brown before removal. You can also just pick off the leaves. To do so cut the stalk a few inches below the sprouting seed. Make sure to keep at least a third of the plant in the soil after harvesting. Next, tie the stems of the cilantro in a bundle and then hang the bundle upside down in a brown paper bag to let it dry.
Some of the ways to add cilantro to your body:
As a fresh herb: by adding it into your foods for flavor.
