Only ONE Herb?

If you could only ues ONE herb for the rest of your life, in any form (or combination, e.g., fresh, leaf, seed, dried, powdered, candied, etc.), what would it be?

I guess mine would have to be cilantro, in all its forms. Mint would come a close second.

        if i base my answer upon what i always have in my refrigerator, then i would also have to go with fresh italian parsley. it just seems to be a basic ingredient in so many dishes that i would cook. It is something that i always have on hand, along with lemons, garlic and olive oil.

        1. I would say cilantro also. The more I use it the more I can't get enough.
