Remedy for migraine, stomach pains, kidney stones


‘Take my dill too,' Mr Dill said, handing the boy a magnificent bouquet. ‘Any pretty girl will fall in love with you if you give her this fragrant dill.'

‘Thanks, Mr Dill, but I don't usually give bouquets of dill to girls!' Toby said.

‘Well, there you go,' Mr Dill said. ‘I went to all that effort for nothing. It's not easy growing fragrant dill. I only become sweet when the sun warms my feathery, fan-like leaves.'

‘Mr Dill, don't be upset, I'll bring your bouquet to my mum. You give flowers to pretty girls, not dill,' the boy laughed.

‘You'll change your mind if you listen to my story…

Once upon a time there lived a princess. She adored flowers, and said that she would marry the man who gave her the most unforgettable bouquet.

The eligible bachelors brought all sorts of bouquets to the girl; beautiful roses and magnificent gladioli, gorgeous chrysanthemums and delightful peonies. The princess fell in love with the bouquets, but when the flowers withered, she threw them away without another thought.

A young gardener was in love with the princess. He delivered vegetables to the royal palace on a donkey, and sometimes caught a glimpse of the young woman. When the gardener find out about the challenge the princess had set, he placed a huge bouquet of dill in front of her.

‘What on earth is that?' the princess asked in surprise.

‘It's a bouquet of dill, Your Majesty. In ancient times, people used to believe dill stopped food causing damage in the stomach. If you want the food which you put in your beautiful mouth to be good for you, decorate your dinner table with my bouquet.'


Dill and princess: story for kids

‘I'm not a cook,' the princess said, irritated. ‘Take your bouquet to the kitchen.'

‘I heard that the Queen suffers from migraines, and the King has kidney stones. The juice from my little brown dill seeds will help your parents.'

‘Then take the dill to the royal doctor,' the princess suggested.

‘Everybody knows the King has a big herd of cows. Give the cows dill for breakfast; they'll produce more milk, and the milk will be thicker. Butter made from the milk will have an unusual flavour. If a cow gets sick from eating bad grass, dill will make them better in a flash.'

‘I don't look after the cows,' the princess replied scornfully.

‘When you give birth to an heir, my dill will also come in handy. It improves the milk of a mother who is breast-feeding, and a mixture made from dill comes to the rescue if a baby has a sore stomach.'

‘Huh, I'll have a wet nurse to feed my baby instead of me,' the princess snorted.

‘Then leave my dill by the window in your room. It will get rid of all the flies and insects from your beautiful bedroom. Farewell, and don't forget my bouquet,' the boy said.

‘I'm going to throw it away immediately,' the princess called after him, and she threw away the dill.

The next day, the princess came across her favourite cow while she was out for a walk. The silver bell around the cow's neck jingled sadly, and the herdsmen told the princess that the cow had a bad stomach. Suddenly, the princess thought about the dill for the first time.

The next day, the Queen almost fainted during a huge dinner party, because she had such an awful migraine. She wanted to leave the guests, but could not, and she didn't know what to do. So the princess remembered about the dill for the second time.

Three days later, the king couldn't get out of bed because of the stabbing pains in his kidneys. And the princess was reminded of the dill for the third time.

The beautiful girl told her parents everything. They were ...
