Dillapiole is an organic chemical compound and essential oil commonly extracted from dill weed, though it can be found in a variety of other plants such as fennel root.[1] This compound is closely related to apiole, having a methoxy group positioned differently on the benzene ring.[2][3]

No carcinogenicity was detected with parsley apiol or dill apiol in mice.[4]
