About 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 essential 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. Herbal preparations of angelica (mostly the root) have been used in Europe since the 10th Century and it was arguably the single most important herb of the Middle Ages due to a belief that it could prevent epidemics.
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.
