Dill
Anethum graveolens L.

Family Name: Apiaceae.

Other Names: Aneth (French); Dill (German); aneto (Italian); eneldo (Spanish).

Description: Dill is a slender annual herb with bnght green leaves that are pinnately divided into numerous thin segments, giving them a feathery appearance. The typical flower heads are borne at the tips of hollow stems and the small, dry fruits (mericarps) are flattened, with pale brown, narrow marginal wings.

Origin: Unclear (perhaps South-western Asia); the plant has been cultivated since ancient times in Egypt, Asia and Europe.

Parts Used: Mainly the small, dry fruits (Anethi fructus) - usually referred to as seeds, also the aerial parts (Anethi herba) and volatile oil (Anethi aetheroleum).

Therapeutic Category: Stomachic, carminative, diuretic.

Uses and Properties: Dill fruits are traditionally used to help support dyspepsia, flatulence, other digestive disorders and as a diuretic. Dill "seeds" are particularly well known as an ingredient of baby's gripe water, used to help support colic and flatulence. The plant has a very long history of health use (mentioned already in Ebers papyrus, about 1500 BC) and was usually considered to be soothing and calming (hence the name dill, derived from the Norse word dylla - to soothe). Dill is also well known as a culinary herb and the fresh leaves are traditionally used to flavour fish.

Active Ingredients: Dill contains volatile oil in the fruit, of which carvone is the main constituent. Flavonoids, furanocoumarins and coumarins may also contribute to the beneficial effects of the herb.

Health Effects: Dill fruits are known to have antispasmodic and bacteriostatic effects. Volatile oils in general are well known for their carminative and diuretic properties.

Notes: Several other well known culinary herbs of the Apiaceae, such as Apium graveolens (celery), Carum carvi (caraway), Coriandrum sativum (coriander), Foeniculum vulgare (fennel) and Petroselinum crispum (parsley) also have volatile oils and furanocoumarins. They are typically used as stomachics, carminatives, diuretics and emmenagogues.

Status: Pharm.; Comm. E+ (fruits only).

Preparation and Dosage: A daily dose of about 3 g of the whole fruits ("seeds"), taken as an infusion or liquid extract, can be used to help support dyspeptic complaints. In the case of the essential oil, 0.1 - 0.3 g is considered an appropriate daily dose.

• Traditionally used to help support digestive disorders, freshens breath, may act as an anti-inflammatory and more.
Medicinal Usage

Dill leaves are little-used for health benefits, though the seeds possess aromatic-stimulant and carminative properties. Drinking dill tea or chewing seeds will reportedly regulate digestive gas, soothe an upset stomach, and sweeten bad breath.

Dill weed oil contains alpha-phellandrene, limonene, and carvone. The seed oil contains the same constituents with higher concentrations of carvone. The seed also contains coumarins and a glycoside. The seed oil is disinfectant.

The leaves contain magnesium, iron, calcium, potassium, phosphorus and vitamin C.

General Herb Information

An herb garden without dill is like a car without wheels. Dill's versatile culinary use and easy culture make it the perfect herb for the beginning herb gardener and a favorite of die-hard enthusiasts.

A. graveolens is a hardy annual native to Southwest Asia and Southeast Europe. It is also naturalized in some parts of North America. It grows from two to four feet high, though `Bouquet,' a dwarf form, is bushier and may be 1 1/2 to 2 feet tall. The stems are smooth, ribbed, hollow and have a bluish-green cast. The finely divided linear leaves envelop the stem with a thin sheath. The tiny yellow flowers grow on terminal umbels up to eight inches across. The flattened fruits have prominent ribs and are about one-eighth of an inch long. Dill has a carrot-like tap root.

Dill is easily grown from seed sown in early spring. Make successive plantings every three weeks from May through the first of August to insure a fresh supply of leaves for picking. Seeds germinate in ten to fourteen days and should be sown to a depth of one-fourth inch. Seedlings grow well thinned to eight to twelve inch spacings. Four to eight pounds of seed will sow an acre, depending upon the planting scheme used. A ready market can be found for fresh dill stalks in most urban areas, making dill a good supplemental cash crop for a family garden. A fifty-foot row will provide a child with some extra spending money for summer vacation.

Dill thrives best in a moderately rich. moist, slightly acid (5 to 7 pH) soil. under full sun. It will tolerate some shade especially in the South.

In a rich garden soil, dill self-sows in abundance. Plants produce seed about eight weeks after planting. An acre may yield 400 to 700 pounds of both seed and leaves or dill "weed?"

Dill leaves are harvested just before the plant comes into bloom. Seeds can be harvested as soon as the tips begin to turn light-brown. Dill weed should be carefully spread to dry at a temperature of 90°F. When hung to dry without temperature regulation, dill often turns an undesirable brown color.

Dill leaf's delicate aromatic flavor lends a refreshing spark to otherwise bland foods such as potatoes, scrambled eggs, omelettes, carrots, sauces, and fresh cucumbers. Dill is, or course, best known for its use in flavoring pickles - and just because some find the flavor of dill pickles unpleasant doesn't mean they will turn up a nose at dill-seasoned dishes. The seeds have a pungent aromatic flavor great with cabbage dishes, potato salads, fish, stew, soup, broth, and breads.

Commonly used to pickle cucumbers, aromatic dill seeds come from an annual plant native to the Mediterranean region. Dill is related to parsley and carrots. Its seeds are actually the fruit produced at the top of dill's delicate, frond-like tops.

Potential Health Benefits

Dill is used to calm the stomach, aid digestion, and sweeten the breath. It also acts as a disinfectant in the intestinal tract.

Scientific Evidence

Dill seed, the dried fruit of the plant, contains an essential oil rich in carvone. The herb quiets spasms in the smooth muscles of the intestine, aiding digestion.

DILL (Anethum graveolens), an herb of European origin, is believed to be the anise of the Scriptures. Dill seeds have been used since antiquity in cookery, and for flavoring salads and pickles. In medieval times dill was considered a protection against the spell of witches, and when steeped in wine, a potent aphrodisiac and love philtre.

Scientific Evidence

How to Use the Herb

Crushed or bruised dill seed can be made into a tea. Commission E's average daily doses are 3 grams from seed and 0.1 - 0.3 grams of the more powerful oil.

Dill is a popular spice widely used in European cuisine and in making dill pickles. The sweet, bitter, and citrusy taste of Dill is similar to caraway. Dill is terrific with soups, dressings, salads, breads, fish, chicken, and much more!

Dill is yet another of that race of umbellifers, similar yet distinct, that makes a collection of herbs so interesting. Visually dill is very much like a slender fennel with its filigree of leaves and flat heads of dull yellow flowers. But distinct from fennel's short-lived perennial habit, the annual plant is normally unbranched until the umbels are reached. It needs to be grown therefore as a clump, the seeds sown in situ in March or April. Thinned to 6 inches apart each way, they are then robust enough to hold each other up. As a natural weed of Mediterranean cornfields it needs the help its fellows can give.

Dill is still a constituent of gripe-water for young children's use but it is as a common flavouring that the leaves, fresh or dried, and the seeds come into their own: it is quite distinct. Dill-flavoured cucumbers are commonly enjoyed yet it is forgotten that the original combination was less for the taste than for the herb to "correct their windiness". Adult gripe-water therefore.



Dill
Anethum graveolens or Peucedanum graveolens
(Dillweed, Dillseed)

Medicinal Usage

Dill seeds were used to make a cordial to help support digestive problems, flatulence, stomach cramps, headaches and insomnia. Dill or gripe water was prescribed to alleviate colic in babies. Like the ancient Greeks, Culpeper recommended the herb to "stayeth the hiccough, being boiled in wine". During medieval times the seeds were chewed to freshen the breath, and to allay hunger pains (especially during long church services). The herb was also administered to nursing mothers to promote the flow of milk.

Culinary Usage

Dill leaves and dried seeds were used for flavouring vinegars and cooked dishes, particularly fish. The leaves were added to salads and sauces, or used as a garnish. The herb was also used as pickling spice for cucumbers and gherkins. The seed is more pungent than the leaves.

Miscellaneous

A native of southern Europe and the eastern Mediterranean, dill was probably introduced into Britain by the Romans, and was listed by Aelfric. Its name is derived from the Norse dilla, or the Anglo-Saxon dylle, both meaning to lull, or soothe. During the Middle Ages the herb was added to love potions and to witches spells, or hung up in a house as protection against the "evil eye". It was also used to perfume soap and cosmetics.

The plant originates from southern Europe and western Asia, and its use is recorded far back in time. As with so many umbellifers, this hardy annual yields two separate culinary components, its seeds and its feathery leaves, which are, somewhat ambiguously known as dill weed.

History

The herb was used for health benefits by health practitioners in both ancient Egypt and Rome; indeed it was the Romans who introduced it to northern Europe. After centuries in obscurity, it surfaced again in medieval times, when its use was widespread, particularly in Scandinavian countries like Norway and Sweden.

Characteristics

Dill grows to a height of 30 inches, with a spread of 12 inches. The green stem, which is hollow and smooth, branches out at the top and carries large flat umbellifers of bright yellow flowers that bloom in midsummer. The leaves are ultra-fine, feathery, and dark green, and have a taste similar to that of parsley. The flat, oval seeds are parchment-colored, and have a rather bitter flavor.

Growing Tips

The plant is easy to grow from seed sown in late spring or early summer. It favors poor, well-drained soil and a sunny position and, since it does not transplant well, should be sown where it is to grow. If the plant is sited close to fennel, cross pollination is possible.

How to Use

The fresh leaves are used in salads, fish dishes, and sauces to serve with fish.

Health-wise,dill is very effective for the support for colic and pain associated with trapped wind. A water made from dill seeds is still readily available everywhere and generations of children have been helped by its gentle calming action on the gut.

How to Take

Taken as dill water (gripe water) 1 to 2 teaspoons is normally sufficient to release trapped wind.
