[Soundbite] Jeon Hye-in(Seongnam, Gyeonggi-do Prov. Resident) : "This is herb oil. You make a bottle and it goes a long way in various dishes."

In making herb oil particularly for fish, use those with a stronger scent to keep down the fishy smell. All you do is mix a spoonful each of olive oil and dried herbs.

[Soundbite] Jeon Hye-in(Seongnam, Gyeonggi-do Prov. Resident) : "It's better to keep herb oil in room temperature for about a week before using. The maturing period develops the flavor."

Now marinate the fish with a generous amount of matured herb oil for about 30 minutes. The finished grilled fish dish will be amazing. Growing just a couple of herbs at home can come in handy in all sorts of cooking. Basil is a perfect match with tomatoes and is commonly found in Italian cuisine. A touch of basil in spaghetti makes a world of difference in taste. Mint, with its refreshing flavor, frozen with water, creates herbal mint ice. You can whip up a cool drink using carbonated water, some lemon and lime and the frozen mint. As you see here, prepare a meal filled with splashes of various herbs.

[Soundbite] Lee Seon-yeong(Anyang, Gyeonggi-do Prov. Resident) : "I love how the aroma permeates through my mouth. The food also tastes light and fresh. I want to make it sometime too."

All you need is plant-based ethanol and a couple of herb oils. They can all be purchased online. First add lemon grass and citronella oils to the plant-based ethanol. This is because mosquitoes particularly hate the citrus scent. Then lavender oil goes in which works as an insecticide and plays another important role.

[Soundbite] Lee Mi-ye(Workshop owner) : "Lavender oil has synergetic properties to facilitate the effects of other fragrance oils."

Mix in some natural moisturizer and purified water and you have a homemade mosquito repellent. Spend a cool, refreshing summer, making good use of versatile herbs.
