Dill (Anethum graveolens)
Anethum graveolens, the culinary and medicinal herb known as Dill, is native to the Middle East, South Asia, Europe, Iran, and Turkey (Talebi, Malchi, Abedi, & Jahanfar, 2020). First recommended medicinally more than two thousand years ago, Dill has been used to treat gastrointestinal problems, such as vomiting, as well as menstrual problems, neonatal colic, and hypertriglyceridemia (Nadiroğlu & Behçet, 2018).
This excerpt on the uses of Dill comes from the 1633 edition of John Gerard’s The Herball, available in the John R. Martin Rare Book Room in Hardin Library for the Health Sciences.
