Mold is everywhere, and toxic molds often take root within homes and other buildings. Water leaks and damp environments fuel the fugal growth and the proliferation of mold spores in the environment. Once mold is discovered, a safe and effective treatment is necessary to prevent further damage to building structure and the health of those who are exposed. One common cleaning method, chlorine bleach, is neither a safe nor often a effective solution. However, essential oils are becoming known as a harmless and potent method to fight molds.
My last post on Radishes: An Anti-fungal Powerhouse, explored one beneficial food in the battle against mold and exposure symptoms. Nature provides many similar fungus-fighting foods and herbs. One of these battling edibles is dill weed. Dill has been used as both a spice and medicine and is especially known for its antimicrobial and anti-fungal properties.
