Angelica Root Essential Oil
Our exceptional angelica root essential oil is part of our artisan-created line of essential oils. It comes from an expert distiller in France who produces limited quantities of a few, very special essential oils. These unique oils are extracted from plants that our distiller grows himself or ethically harvests from the wild.
We find the aroma of our angelica root selection to be exquisitely earthy, with musky-green notes and subtle hints of spice.
The energy of angelica root oil has been described as Warm and Dry and it’s claimed by some aromatherapists to support emotional balance and promote the release of negativity from the spirit and psyche. The name alone tells you that angelica has been regarded in folk medicine and myth as a very powerful plant. It was believed to protect against witches and the evil eye as well as all kinds of bad spells and influences. Angelica has also been known as Herb of the Holy Spirit and Herb of the Holy Ghost.
How to use Angelical Root Essential Oil:
Care must be taken in using Angelica root essential oil on the skin since it can cause sunburning if the skin is exposed to ultraviolet light (sunlight or tanning lamps) for 12 hours after application. The safest way to use it as a topical application is to apply it at night, when ultraviolet exposure is more easily avoided. To use Angelica Root essential oil for inhalation, a convenient method is to put one or 2 drops in an aromatherapy locket which is constructed so that the oil will not touch the skin.
Another Angelica Oil option is Angelica Seed Essential Oil.

Otherwise, it is generally considered non-toxic and non-irritant IN SMALL AMOUNTS.

Although we do not advise internal use of ANY essential oils except under properly qualified medical supervision, some experts have specifically cautioned against the internal use of angelica root essential oil.
