Seventh Generation Review & Giveaway Ends 11/20/11


One would think that choosing a Dish Liquid would be easy, right? Wrong!

It's not so easy for me. I'm choosy -- about fragrance and about ingredients. I want a product that's safe, as natural as possible, and smells good without being over-powering.


Seventh Generation makes the choice so much easier. I've used their products many times in the past and I'm delighted to tell you about their amazing dish liquids in four brilliant scents:
Fresh Citrus and Ginger, Lavender, Lemongrass and Clementine Zest, and unscented Free and Clear.


My favourite is the Lemongrass and Clementine Zest -- I love the bright, sharp fragrance of lemon and orange.  It brings spring into my kitchen.  Lizz tried the Free and Clear as both she and her fiance have very sensitive skin. 

The power of scent is remarkable. It can have positive effects on your mood, reduce stress, and even help you sleep better. But not all scents are created equal. The fruit, floral and herbal ingredients used to create the scents in Seventh Generation´s new natural dish liquid come from fields, not factories.

Seventh Generation dish liquid contains only essential oils and botanical extracts, and delivers real cleaning power. Your tableware will be left fresh and ready to serve your next home cooked meal.

With authentic ingredients like lavender from the fields of Drome in the foothills of the Alps, clementines from sunny Calabria and lemons from the soils of Sicily, Seventh Generation natural dish liquid is free of unnecessary synthetic colors or chemically engineered scents.


Enter the "Nature Makes Perfect Scents" sweepstakes at Seventhgeneration.com/scents and you can have the chance to take a trip for two to visit one of the sourcing sites of Seventh Generation natural dish liquid fragrance ingredients. Visit Seventhgeneration.com/scents to learn more about each scent´s origin.

I'm inspired by the lovely fragrances of Seventh Generation's Dish Liquids.

I made Orange Chicken with Rosemary and Ginger a few nights ago.

Here's the recipe:

INGREDIENTS:
4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1 sprig Rosemary
1/2 teaspoon fresh ginger
1 small orange sliced thin
1/2 teaspoon orange zest
1/2 cup white wine


DIRECTIONS:
Place white wine and several orange slices in bottom of glass or ceramic oblong pan. Add chicken breasts. Gently pull needles from Rosemary and sprinkle on top of chicken along with orange zest and ginger. Place remaining orange slices on top. Cover and bake at 375F for one hour. Uncover and bake an additional 10 minutes. Serve with rice pilaf. Serves four.
