Dill weed essential oil is an excellent addition to blends for occasional muscular pain due to its anti-spasmodic tendencies.  Of course, you smell a little pickled when you use it . . . but it works.  If you’ve ever tried the old wives’ tale about drinking pickle juice for cramps, you know just how well it works.  I much prefer using it in a roller bottle to drinking pickle juice for my cramping feet!  An added benefit to this use is that dill is known to help repel insects, although it may not be as effective as something like lemon eucalyptus in this.

Properly diluted and rubbed on the tummy, dill weed essential oil can aid in digestion and decrease flatulence.  Some have managed to regulate menstrual cycles with topical application.  Inhaled, diffused, or used topically, it can have a calming effect in times of stress and may make a boring job easier to take.  The antimicrobial properties of dill weed essential oil make it an excellent addition to a mouth rinse.

Note that the dill weed essential oil is the milder of the dill essential oils.  While it offers much of the same benefits of dill seed essential oil, it’s not the same oil.

With our pre-diluted oils . . . if diluted for kids is the highest dilution you see, it’s also the max dilution possible. Pre-diluted oils are in jojoba.

    I’m so excited to use this in pain blends for several friends. The scent is fresh and light—definitely reminds me of pickles—but in a good way. I appreciate the list of oils suggested for blending.

Dill Weed Essential Oil Safety Info

According to Tisserand and Young, a max dermal dilution of 1.2% is necessary due to possible sensitization and this oil should not be used orally by anyone taking diabetes medications.  There’s a higher chance of sensitization when oxidized so storage in a refrigerator is preferred.  Dill Weed essential oil should still follow the safety guidelines below. ~ Source:  Tisserand, Robert and Young, Rodney. Essential Oil Safety: A Guide for Health Care Professionals: Churchill Livingstone; 2 edition (2013). Reading the full profile for Dill Weed essential oil is highly suggested by your DeRu Staff.

***Please note that some websites state that this oil should be avoided during pregnancy or breastfeeding, but Tisserand and Young make no such statement in their book.  We believe that some have mixed up the recommendations for another type of dill essential oil with this one.  Dill seed essential oil from India carries warnings to avoid during pregnancy or breastfeeding . . . dill weed essential oil does not.  Do due diligence before you choose to use this oil while pregnant.

While we’ve made this clear that we are selling this essential oil to use in your diffuser, your inhaler, or topically (diluted), it is a pure essential oil and can be used as such.  With all essential oils:

  • Never use them undiluted, in eyes or mucus membranes (this includes mouth, ear canals, noses, genital regions as well as internal areas).  The strength of essential oils can easily damage these soft tissue areas.
  • Do not take internally unless working with a qualified and expert practitioner.
    Keep away from children.
  • If applying an essential oil to your skin always perform a small patch test to an insensitive part of the body (after you have properly diluted the oil in an appropriate carrier).

  • Oral Safety is only given because many people have been told to take oils internally.  Because several people look to us for safety advice, we feel obligated to offer those safety statements, although we do not believe anyone should be ingesting essential oils without being guided by an expert.  Experts will take your medical history into account before they suggest oils for you to ingest, diffuse, or use topically.
