  Angelica Root (no ratings yet)
Angelica archangelica, organically produced, steam-distilled aged root, Belgium
• Fatigue and stress-related illnesses including PTSD
• Immune stimulant
• Chronic stomach problems & lack of appetite
• Chronic respiratory conditions


Absolutely beautiful specimen from Belgium. We have been waiting until the last of our Private Reserve German production was gone to introduce you to this more affordably priced distillation.

A must for dealing with PTSD and emotional trauma.

Angelica was known in the middle ages as “The Angels Herb” for its almost miraculous healing strength. In the past, it was used to purify the blood, and as an antidote to poisoning. It was believed to be the remedy for all infectious diseases. The essential oil is wonderful for fatigue and for stress-related illnesses. Emotionally and spiritually it is helpful for those who need grounding, or who are searching for reality.

Physically, Angelica Root may be useful in cases of chronic stomach problems such as gastritis, and for lack of appetite. It is also useful with chronic respiratory conditions, such as asthma, sinus problems, etc. The herbal form of Angelica Root is said to be an immune system stimulant, a blood purifier, a remedy for all infectious diseases and toxins. Whether any or all of these characteristics apply to the oil is a good question. I have frequently seen Angelica Root Oil recommended for use in many chronic illnesses, especially chronic respiratory problems, and illnesses related to accumulation of toxins, such as gout, rheumatism, and water retention. Thinking of how nicely this oil blends with Juniper Berry and wondering how that combination would work to treat edema.

One of my mentors says that Angelica Root can help “shut down” the emotions. Not an effect to be encouraged, but perhaps useful in a situation where you absolutely can not afford to “feel your feelings” during an emergency?

Emotionally, Angelica Root is recommended for fatigue and stress-related illnesses. Fischer-Rizzi recommends it for helping you discover your own inner resources. I have also seen it recommended for those who need grounding. I am experimenting with a blend of Angelica Root and Rose Otto for a friend who suffers from recurrent panic attacks (as an alternative to our Reunité of course!).

WARNING: Angelica Root is a powerful photosensitizer. If applied to the skin avoid exposure to UV light. The oil is reputed to stimulate uterine contractions, so avoid use during pregnancy.  Recommended dermal limit to avoid sun damage is 0.8%, less than one drop of essential oil per teaspoon of carrier.

SHELF LIFE: Approximately 1 to 2 years after you open the bottle.  Storing in the dark, refrigerated, and decanting half full bottles into smaller, full bottles will extend shelf life.
