Dill is a lovely herb that adds a refreshing flavor to any recipe. To brew a stomach-soothing tea, use two teaspoons of mashed seeds per cup of boiling water.

Both seeds and leaves are edible. It was known as a medicinal herb since ancient times where soldiers placed burned dill seeds on their wounds to promote healing.
