Dill - an overview
Although in different parts of the world dill seeds are still being used for these purposes, because of the lack of scientific proof for this plant’s medical effectiveness it has not been accepted in modern Western medicine.It has been reported that chewing dill seeds clears up bad breath or halitosis (Anonymous, 2007; Hoffman, 1996; Small and Deutsch, 2001; Volak and Stodola, 1998).Dill seed oil is active against harmful intestinal bacteria including Escherichia coli (Vokk et al., 2011) and against paramecia and helminthes (Anonymous, 2007).Specific uses are for fever, jaundice, and intestinal and genitourinary tract infections; it has also been used in rheumatic affections and other swelling of joints (external and in Charaka prescription together with paste of linseed and castor oil and milk) as an anti-inflammatory and analgesic agent. .

Dill benefits + recipes
When I am organized, I plant it several times during the spring and summer to enable a small supply to thrive for my own use.I always purchase some from local markets in early September and make my annual goodies with it, freezing the rest in small bunches or in ice cube trays in broth or water.Probably the first thing that comes to mind regarding delightful Dill (Anethum graveolens), is the gentle soothing way it works with our digestive system ~ from infant to elder.In fact, people chomping or sucking on dill seeds is reported in biblical times, to help avoid indigestion and hiccups.As one of my favourite carminatives, dill can both prevent and relieve gas and bloating.Dill is anti-inflammatory and has a long tradition of being used to help to improve arthritic conditions.So many herbal friends ARE anti-inflammatory in nature, and so I always encourage you to find ways to add these life-enhancing herbs into your meals!^^ It's easy to make a very simple "high Calcium tea" --> Just add 1 tablespoon of dill seed to 1 cup of just boiled water.If you think about it, we can all benefit from a cup or two of dill seed tea to calm and soothe our digestion, add calcium to support bone health and enjoy the anti-microbial (etc) attributes at the same time!Years ago, folks carried a combination of seeds wrapped in a hankie or tucked into a pocket, when attending church to freshen breath, stave off hunger pains and relieve gas.There are several companies around the world that make a version of this concoction, which mothers have used for centuries to calm a colicky baby.We don't need to purchase commercial concoctions when the lovingly prepared home-crafted herbal remedy works well.Some moms prefer to make a larger batch to use over a 2-3 day period.Strain out the dill seeds (they can be used again, so reserve in fridge in a sealed container for a day or two).This very soothing tea, or dill-infused water, can be enjoyed by mom too for added benefit.Here's a wonderful combination from Karen England from the IHA Herb of the Year book available here.1-2 small red chilis, broken or chopped medium-fine, including seeds.Dill Medicine includes using this delightful herb in all manner of dishes.I love to add into egg dishes, make cucumber salad, enjoy with smoked salmon, red onions & capers.Probably twice a week, all summer long and even into autumn, I make a well-loved Cucumber salad with Dill.2-3 sprigs dill weed Instructions Peel the cucumbers Slice thinly into a bowl Add a little salt and toss to mix Leave the bowl on the counter, covered or not, for 3-4 hours Drain water off, reserving the cukes Add 2-3 tablespoons of yogurt or sour cream Toss to cover completely.Recipe Notes This dish is so refreshing and cooling and goes with almost any summer meal!My other most used 'dilly' recipe comes from my dear friend Rob, who treated us to this festive appetizer, years ago. .

A Modern Herbal
The plant is referred to in St. Matthew XXiii., 23, though the original Greek name Anethon, was erroneously rendered Anise by English translators, from Wicklif (1380) downwards.The seed is of more use than the leaves, and more effectual to digest raw and vicious humours, and is used in medicines that serve to expel wind, and the pains proceeding therefrom....'.---Description---The plant grows ordinarily from 2 to 2 1/2 feet high and is very like fennel, though smaller, having the same feathery leaves, which stand on sheathing foot-stalks, with linear and pointed leaflets.It is of very upright growth, its stems smooth, shiny and hollow, and in midsummer bearing flat terminal umbels with numerous yellow flowers, whose small petals are rolled inwards.The plant was placed by Linnaeus in a separate genus, Anethum, whence the name Fructus Anethi, by which Dill fruit goes in medicine.When grown on a large scale for the sake of its fruits, it may be sown in drills 10 inches apart, in March or April, 10 lb.In dry periods, cutting is best done in early morning or late evening, care being taken to handle with the least possible shaking to prevent loss.In hot weather, threshing may be done in the field, spreading the sheaves on a large canvas sheet and beating out.The seeds are finally dried by spreading out on trays in the sun, or for a short time over the moderate heat of a stove, shaking occasionally.Dill fruits are oval, compressed, winged about one-tenth inch wide, with three longitudinal ridges on the back and three dark lines or oil cells (vittae) between them and two on the flat surface.---Constituents---Oil of Dill is of a pale yellow colour, darkening on keeping, with the odour of the fruit and a hot, acrid taste.In spite of the difference in odour between Dill and Caraway oils, the composition of the two is almost identical, both consisting nearly entirely of limonene and carvone.The British Pharmacopoeia directs that only the fruits from English-grown plants shall be employed pharmaceutically, and it is grown in East Anglia for that purpose.The Dill fruits of commerce are imported from central and southern Europe, the plant being largely cultivated in Germany and Roumania.Indian dill is widely grown in the Indies under the name of 'Soyah,' its fruit and leaves being used for flavouring pickles.African dill oil is produced from plants grown from English imported seed.Then with Dill, gross pepper, a pretty quantity of salt, when cold add as much vinegar as will make it sharp and pour all upon the Collyflower.'.
