History and Origin

Angelica originates from Europe and Asia. Its generic name refers to its aromatic and medicinal properties. According to others, Angelica was named after the Archangel Michael since its flowering season was around the Saint’s day. Angelica is found wild about everywhere in Quebec, but in low concentrations. It likes moist soils and grows well along rivers, in shady position. It is a large perennial herbaceous plant with white flowers forming terminal umbels. Roots are long and spindle-shaped, thick and fleshy. This plant is traditionally used for its flavor. It enters in the preparation of Benedictine and Chartreuse, two alcoholic beverages. It is also used to make candy; the stems are cooked in sweet syrup.

Aromatherapy Data Sheet

Extraction : Steam distillation
pH : 3.8
Aroma and taste :

Unusual. The first aromatic impression is reminiscent of dirty socks, but it is quickly followed by the dry, sweet, green herbaceous scent of the plant and oil. The flavor is slightly fruity, strongly earthy but not earthlike, with a hint of green floral tones; a really lovely taste. Diluted it becomes quite mild and retains the fruity-floral edge.

Stability and Shelf Life : Unknown, but certainly twelve months or more.

Properties and Applications

Experimental. Distinctly sedative, grounding, and calming to the nerves and very useful for anxiety states or high stress. A mild digestive, although not nearly as effective as the oil, perhaps because the hydrosol lacks the bitter principals to the same degree. It is warming to the system and can be used to increase appetite and tone the digestion.

Energetically, angelica is said to bridge heaven and earth, connect the seventh chakra to the first, and still have a grounding effect. When dowsed with a pendulum, both the oil and the hydrosol exhibit a phenomenal energy field, and so intention of use becomes a contributing factor in its applications for vibrational healing.
