About the Plant:

Angelica is a tall, strong, and stately plant that is often compared to Dong Quai or Ginseng. A biennial plant from the carrot family, Angelica is not only related to Chinese Dong Quai, but shares some of its vitalizing effects. In the past, it was used much in the same way that Ginseng is today, and was just as popular. Angelica can be steam distilled from the root or seeds, but the root is more potent than the seeds.

Where it Grows:

Angelica Root is a flowering plant that grows all over the world.  It is native to China and other countries in East Asia, where it's used primarily in traditional medicine to treat female hormonal issues. Amrita® Aromatherapy is proud to have Angelica Root from Hungary.

Traditional Uses and Lore:

For centuries, people have faithfully used Angelica for its highly prized fortifying and comforting properties. This is an herb whose purported powers span the body, mind, and beyond. It has been a folk remedy known to do everything from supporting recovery from illness and warding off contagious diseases, to restoring lost appetite. It has even been known to eliminate nervousness.

One of the legends surrounding Angelica Root says that it was revealed to a monk in a dream as a cure for the dreaded plague of Europe's Medieval period. Old herbal texts refer to Angelica as a purifying agent, expelling toxins while easing gout, rheumatism, and water retention.

Although its name may evoke soft halos and melodious harp music, Angelica Root Essential Oil is a sweet, herbal, and spicy aroma for times when you need to have both feet on the ground. Its warming and stimulating effects restore one's vitality, strength, and stamina, making life on earth more manageable.

Because of its name, some inaccurate assumptions have been made about its effects on mind, spirit, and emotions. Rather than invoking angelic energies, it helps to ground and stabilize angelic energy. People who lack earth energy can find great benefits in using Angelica Root Oil.

Angelica Root can help “shut down” emotions. While this is not an effect to be encouraged, it can be useful in situations where you cannot afford to feel your feelings, such as during an emergency or in the case of recurring panic attacks.
