Dill essential oil information

Our dill essential oil is extracted from Anethum sowa - also known as Indian Dill. It is very closely related to A. graveolens, which is also known as Peucedanum graveolens and Fructus anethi and it is of the Umbelliferae (Apiaceae) family. The properties of these two types are very much alike, although the A. sowa is a more "rounded" oil in comparison.

On the mental plane, dill oil is used in aromatherapy to combat the feeling of being overwhelmed and in times of crisis, while physically, it assists with digestion, easing constipation and flatulence, as well as hiccups. It promotes the healing of wounds on the skin.

Oil properties

Dill oil has a grass-like smell and is pale yellow in color, with a watery viscosity.

Origin of dill oil

Originally from South West Asia, Dill is an annual or biennial herb that grows up to 1 meter (3 feet). It has green feathery leaves and umbels of small yellow flowers, followed by tiny compressed seeds.

It was popular with the Egyptians, Greeks and Romans, who called it "Anethon" from which the botanical name was derived. The common name comes from the Anglo-Saxon 'dylle' or 'dylla', which then changed to dill. The word means 'to lull' - referring to its soothing properties. In the Middle Ages it was used as a charm against witchcraft.

Since 1812, when Charlemagne, Emperor of France, ordered the extensive cultivation of this herb, it has been widely used, especially as a culinary herb.

Extraction dill oil

Dill oil is extracted by steam distillation, mainly from the seeds, or the whole herb, fresh or partly dried. Our oil is extracted by steam distillation from the crushed seed.

Chemical composition

The main chemical components of dill oil are d-carvone, dillapiol, dhc, eugenol, limonene, terpinene and myristicin.

Precautions
