10 Healthy Herbs You Should Be Using


Dill: helps protect your eyes

With its distinct fragrance, dill provides a tangy addition to your favorite recipes. The tasty herb contains an abundance of beta-carotene to promote sharp vision and beautiful skin. Rumor has it that dill may also cure the hiccups. Chewing on and swallowing dill seeds is supposed to stimulate the vagus nerve and put a stop to annoying hiccups. (While I couldn’t find any scientific evidence to back this up, it certainly can’t hurt to try it out!) You could also prepare a cup of tea using dried dill leaves, and sip slowly instead.

It can be used dried or fresh in a number of dishes, including these Ricotta-Dill Salmon Patties.
