Magickal: The herb is protective when hung at the door and carried in protective sachets. Placed in the cradle it protects children. And if placed over the door, no one ill-disposed or envious of you can enter your home. Added to the bath, it makes the bather irresistible, and dill stimulates lust if eaten or smelled. Smell dill to cure hiccoughs. Simmer fresh dill during spring-cleaning and after the home has been closed for some time to rid it of the sick home feeling.
