We’re looking for backing to refine, produce and market a solution for bad breath. It’s called “Parsleyfier” and is no less than confidence in a bottle. Help us bring to market a solution to a long-standing problem.
Bad breath dilemma
Lots of people out there struggle with bad breath to some degree. It may ruin your social life. It may limit your career or affect your love life. Visits to dentists, expensive mouthwashes, endless gum chewing, brushing and flossing five times a day may only mask the problem. Chlorine or alcohol-based mouthwashes can make your mouth dry and the problem worse. Brushing – there is only so much you can brush during a busy work day and chewing gum may cause all kinds of adverse health effects. All these solutions focus on the mouth when in some cases, bad breath may originate in the throat (tonsil stones), the esophagus and the stomach (keto breath).
You may find yourself at your wit’s end and start experimenting with various home remedies. I started looking for an organic, additive-free solution for my occasional bouts of bad breath a few years ago. After much research and trial-and-error experiences of my own, I stumbled into parsley. For thousands of years, parsley has been known and used for its anti-fungal, antibacterial and anti-mutagenic properties. Mainly, it can suppress digestive tract bad bacteria growth for extended periods of time. It tastes great. It is natural and healthy and best of all, you can grow it in your own garden.
Parsley seed oil has been used and marketed before in various oral hygiene products, but with varying success. It may not have the same properties as organic parsley. I found parsley to work better, but the only problem was that the parsley extract is perishable.
I developed a proprietary blend of various parsley extracts and essential oil combinations. For the base, I used organic grapeseed oil. It is tasteless, odourless and fairly light. Fresh, organic parsley is washed and dried. Then it is milled to a fine consistency and mixed with the base oil. Afterwards, I let it sit for awhile to allow the oil to absorb the parsley extract and for water and particles to settle. The infused oil is then harvested using gravitational pull and further refined using advanced filtering techniques.
The next challenge was how to boost parsley power with a fresh scent. After some experimenting, I tried adding organic mint extract which resulted in a promising product. It has a long shelf life as it is oil based. Mint and parsley act as natural preservatives preventing oil from getting rancid. It is an amber-green, clear liquid. It has a pleasant smell and taste. It also has moisturising properties and helps soothe dry mouth.
Parsleyfier – soothes bad breath
To this day, I use the product myself and came up with the name Parsleyfier. It is an absolute miracle and a life saver. I take about half a teaspoon three times daily, and the results are remarkable. It can be taken either on an empty stomach or after a meal. My breath is usually at its worst after 2 PM, and this is usually the time when most meetings take place at work. Parsleyfier solved the problem and gave me confidence. No more bad breath.
The product is light. It tastes refreshing. It is easy to take, and it works for 2-3 hours.
How you can help bring the product to the market
I would very much like to share this product with others struggling with the problem of bad breath. However, it needs more work in order to reach the market. I have a domain name reserved – www.parsleyfier.com . I also designed bottling and labelling for the product. I can produce small test batches (50-100 bottles).
To take it to the next level, in addition to my own investment, I require further funding in order to:
- Refine the recipe and the manufacturing process
- Purchase equipment for medium-sized batch production
- Purchase bottling, labels and packaging
- Fund an online marketing campaign
- Research liability and insurance requirements
