Dill gets it’s name from an olde Norse word “dilla” which means “to lull” or “to soothe.” An aromatic plant is wonderful for both culinary dishes & for magick. Dill is thought to keep manipulative witchcraft at bay. Think of it as an herb that creates a magickal “no fly” zone around you. Magick Tip: hang up bundles of fresh dill to dry in your “magickal kitchen” & bring some protection & serenity into the heart of your home. In olden times, today also, it was & still is believed that hanging a bunch of fresh dill above a cradle would keep a baby happy & content. As a “kitchen witch” I suggest taking the fragrant fresh flower heads of the dill & putting them into “charm bags” & “magickal sachets” to promote level-headedness, contentment & safety. Enchant any culinary dill you use for cooking. Element for Dill: Fire; Plantary: Mercury. In the language of flowers, dill announces that you are “irresistible.” September is the month of Dill.
