In The Records
Dill (Anethum graveolens) is a unique herb that belongs to the parsley and celery family and is native to the eastern Mediterranean region and western Asia. Despite being the sole species in its genus, dill has been an important part of human history and culture for centuries. Its name comes from the old Norse word dylla, meaning to soothe or lull, and it was first mentioned in Egyptian medical texts dating back to 3000 B.C. Dill has had a significant role in different cultures and was used as a good luck symbol in ancient Rome, as a witch repellent and aphrodisiac in ancient Egypt, and as a symbol of wealth in Greece. Throughout history, many cultures cultivated dill for its medicinal properties, particularly for its ability to soothe the stomach. Dill is also mentioned in the Bible, and in the past, Puritans and Quakers gave their children dill seeds to chew on as an appetite suppressant during church. Today, dill is still celebrated for its various benefits, including its use as a breath freshener, anti-bacterial agent, and for stimulating milk production in breastfeeding women, as well as alleviating colic.
