Steam distilled in the United States from the herb.
Dill herb makes a gentle, stimulating, and warming essential oil.
Dill also adds a spicy summery note to blends. It is considered to be antidepressive.
Arctander notes the following:
Dill weed oil is a colorless to pale yellow mobile liquid with a powerful and fresh, sweet-spicy, peppery adn aromatic orod, reminiscent of elemi oil, spearmint, citrus etc with a sweet, nutmeg-like undertone. The taste is warm and slightly burning, but pleasant and not pungent although very peppery and spicy, with a faint anisic undertone. Outside of this description, he will only go to pickles.
Battaglia has an entry for dill seed, not dill weed. Although there are similiarities in that both are indicated for digestion.
