Angelica Root essential oil has a sharp, green, herbaceous aroma with peppery overtones. Its virtues have been recognized since ancient civilization. According to legend, the plant was revealed to a monk by an angel as an antidote to the bubonic plague. Angelica's very name thus associates it with healing, and with supposed angelic qualities that include protection from infections, epidemics and poisons. It was a symbol of the Holy Spirit and holds a place within the Trinity, in that the stem grows out from between two cuticles that wrap around each other. Another story is that it blooms on the day of St. Michael The Archangel and as such is a protection against all evil spirits and witchcrafts.
Angelica essential oil is a common perfumery ingredient particularly in premium brands. It is one of the best essential oils to use during convalescence and is particularly recommended for the elderly.
