Dill Essential Oil USA

Dill Essential Oil USA, (Anethum graveolens), from the Dill weed not seed of the Dill plant which has lower carvone content than dill seed oil but still has a similar warm, spicy herbal and very pleasant aroma.  Dill plants from India and the USA are slightly different analytically.  All natural dill essential oils whether seed or herb, American or Indian, contain varying amounts of carvone, limonene, and dihydrocarvone, eugenol, anisic aldehyde, anethole and thymol.  Which is better is entirely a matter of opinion and personal taste.  Dill seed oil from India has a more typical pickle aroma than this particular lot of American Dill weed.

  • Carvone a member of a family of chemicals called terpenoids.[2]  Carvone is found naturally in many essentials oils, but is most abundant in the oils from seeds of Caraway (Carum carv) and dill.
  • Limonene a colourless liquid hydrocarbon classified as a cylic terpene.  The more common D isomer posesses a strong smell of oranges.[1]  It is used in chemical synthesis as a precursor to carvone and as a renewably based solvent in cleaning products.  Limonene takes its name from lemon, as the rind of the lemon, like other citrus fruits contains considerable amounts of this compound, which contributes to their odor. 
  • Dihydrocarvone
  • Eugenol is a phenylpropene, an allyl chain substituted guaiacol.  Eugenol is a member of the phenylpropanoids class of chemical compounds.  It is clear to pale yellow oily liquid extracted from certain essential oils especially clove oil, nutmeg, cinnamon, basil and bay leaf.[1][2][3][4][5] It is slightly soluble in water and soluble in organic solvents.  It has a spicy, clove like aroma.
