We find our Angelica seed essential oil to have a fresh, spicy, green aroma. It’s been described by some aromatherapists as promoting emotional balance. In aromatherapy, the actions and uses of angelica seed essential oil are said to be similar to those of angelica root essential oil, except that angelica seed essential oil is NOT phototoxic, which makes it somewhat easier to use for topical applications. In perfumery, angelica seed essential oil is said to have more top note impact than the essential oil of angelica root.
Aromatically, Angelica Seed Essential Oil is said to blend well with citrus oils, conifer and fir oils, Clary Sage oil, Frankincense oil, Patchouli oil and Vetiver oil.
How to Use Angelica Seed Essential Oil with Adults
The use of essential oils with children under16 years of age is a specialized topic; please consult an aromatherapy reference book or, better yet, a properly trained professional aromatherapist, before using essential oils with children (see www.naha.org for appropriate training standards for aromatherapists and for help in locating a professional aromatherapist).
We find that this is a useful essential oil to use alone or in combination with other essential oils and we like to put a drop or two in an aroma locket, on a fan diffuser or in a steam inhalation. With proper dilution, this essential oil can also be used on the skin. Angelica seed essential oil is NOT phototoxic so it can be used on the skin with a standard safe concentration of 2.5% in vegetable oil or other fatty base, such as jojoba. To create a massage oil with a 2.5% concentration of Angelica Seed Essential Oil, add 23 drops of the essential oil to one ounce of vegetable oil. For bathing, add up to 5 drops of this diluted essential oil to a warm bath; be careful, the tub will be slick.
