#thursdaythrive  What is Dill?
- Dill can be a perennial or annual herb, depending on where it is cultivated in the world. It can be used dry as a topping for a number of meals, but it is also used as an ingredient in many meals.
- The essential oils present in it are stimulating and they activate the secretion of bile and digestive juices. These oils also stimulate peristaltic motion of the intestine, easing the passage of bowel movements and relieving constipation.
- Hiccups occur for various reasons, but primarily they occur due to trapped gas and its repeated upward movement through the food pipe. The second cause is due to certain allergies, hypersensitivity, hyperactivity, and nervous malfunctioning. Dill can help in these situations. As a carminative, it helps the expulsion of gases and also reduces gas formation; while as a sedative, dill helps to calm down hiccups due to allergies, hyperactivity, or nervous disorders.
- Dill seeds and leaves are good mouth and breath fresheners.
