There are over 30 different types of Angelica, but Angelica archangelica is the most common species used for medicinal purposes. A native species to Europe and Siberia, Angelica grows up to 6 feet tall, is covered with a soft 'fur' and produces umbles of white flowers. Early europeans noticed the potency of its healing abilities and rendered it of divine origin, thus naming it: 'holy spirit root' or 'oil of angels'.

This oil is steam distilled from the roots of Angelica plants grown in Hungary. It takes approximately 340 pounds of plant material to produce one pound of Angelica essential oil.

It blends well with Pacthouli, Opopanax, Costus, Clary Sage, Oakmoss, Vetiver and all Citrus oils.

Traditional Uses

Stems of the plant were chewed during the plague of 1660 to target infection; when burned, the seeds and roots were thought to purify the air. Angelica is said to bloom on the day of Michael the Archanges and, on that account, is used as a preservative against evil spirits and witches. Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) uses at least 10 types of Angelica for promoting fertility, fortifying spirit and for reducing female reproductive disorders. Angelica's reputation for physiological support is second only to Ginseng. Angelica also has a long history of use in supporting healing of respiratory conditions such as colds, coughs, and sinus problems; Missourian tribes smoked it for this purpose. The Alaskan Aleut peoples boiled the roots for application to both internal and external wounds in order to speed the healing process. Historically, Angelica is referred to as a purifiying agent, easing rheumatism and gout, warming, comforting and sudorific and can be particularly effective in drying out the body and expelling toxins. Angelica Root is reputed to have excellent detoxifying and diuretic properties. Used in a massage oil, it improves lymph drainage, relieves rheumatism and arthritis, fluid retention and cellulite.
