Best known as a herb for cooking throughout the world, dill has also historically been used in a wide range of traditional medicines. The word dill originates from the Norse word dylla, meaning to sooth and is first recorded in ancient Egyptian medical texts dated to around 3000 B.C. In ancient Greece it was used to make fragrance and thought of as a sign of wealth and good luck. In the middle ages Christian Monks believed it to have magical properties that would keep the devil at bay, it was also used against witchcraft. If someone thought a witch had cast a spell on them, they would make a concoction which contained dill leaves, or wear a charm made from dill to protect themselves from the spell. In German folklore, a bride desiring an equal marriage could secretly bring dill and mustard seeds to the wedding and speak the words “I have you mustard and dill, husband, when I speak, you stay still!”
