100 Essential Oils in 100 Days - Day 1 - Angelica

The scientific name for it is Angelica arcangelica. It has also been referred to as "Female Ginseng," which I actually find rather humorous. :D

Angelica is a very unique essential oil, as one would assume by it's name. In years past it's powerful effect on health and wellness caused the plant and its oil to be believed that it was of divine origin. It was even called the "Oil of Angels" by many Europeans. During the plague of 1660, the stems of the angelica plants were chewed and the seeds and roots burned as it was believed to purify the air and prevent infection.

Today we can see very easily through science that it is definitely a powerful oil, causing great support in the nervous system and aiding greatly in promoting emotional balance. Many people also use it to aid in healthy digestion and absorption as well.

Angelica essential oil is derived from the steam distilled from the seeds and roots of the plant. Suggested dilution ratios are 50/50, and as it is a photosensetive oil, it is advised not to use it when you will be in direct contact with sun light.
