Dill is a short-lived perennial herb which represented wealth to the ancient Greeks.
During the Middle Ages, dill was believed to possess magical powers and could destroy evil spells.
The name is derived from the old Norse word “dilla” meaning “to lull” because it was used to lull babies to sleep, and as an antidote to bad witchcraft and sorcery.
A drink made from dill leaves was the remedy for anyone who believed that a evil witch had cast a spell on them.
Sprinkling dried Dill on your front steps prevents evil from coming into your house
