Dill seed is thought to be warm and strong-tasting. People believe it can warm your body, get your energy moving, and even help if you've had bad fish or meat. It's thought to work on your spleen and kidneys.
How to Prepare Dill Seed:
- For sore back muscles: Fry dill seeds until they smell good. Grind them into a powder. Mix 5g of this powder in warm rice wine and drink.
Dill leaf is also warm and strong-tasting but it can be heavy on your system. Some tests on animals suggest that dill leaf could lower blood pressure and make blood vessels bigger.
As always, make sure to check with a healthcare expert for advice that fits you best.
