If you are looking for a fresh, pungent flavor to replace fresh or dried dill in dressings and dips, then Dill Vitality is your choice of oils. Fresh dill pairs with a variety of cuisines, and Dill Vitality blends perfectly with Carrot Seed Vitality and Lemon Vitality as a dynamic ingredient to add to soups and stews.
Historically according to the Papyrus of Ebers from Egypt (1500 B.C.), the dill plant was used by Roman Gladiators to rub into their skin before a fight. Dill contains properties of antispasmodic, antibacterial, expectorant, and stimulant. Why do you think they did this? My guess is as a stimulant, so that they would be more alert, but I guess we will actually never know for sure.
Dill Vitality can be ingested orally, applied directly on the area of concern, and diffused. A drop or two on the wrist may help with a sugar addiction. Now this might be worth a try!
Overall, what is it good for?
- Antispasmodic, antibacterial, expectorant, and stimulant
- Dietary supplement
- Relaxing aromatic experience
