Legend: A medicinal plant since antiquity, physicians believed that the heart healing powers of Angelica were so great they were sent from God. Archangelica comes from the Greek word “arkhangelos” (=arch-angel), due to the belief that it was the archangel Michael who told of its use as medicine.
From the 10th century on, Angelica was cultivated as a vegetable and medicinal plant and achieved popularity in Scandinavia in the 12th century and is still used today, especially in Sami culture. Angelica is a shamanic medicine among the Saami or Laplanders.
Angelica archangelica roots have been used in the traditional Austrian medicine internally as tea or tincture
Angelica is also used in the liqueurs Benedictine and Chartreuse.

Directions: Suspended in a base of pure Jojoba oil, this Angelica pure essential oil blend can be applied neat to the skin or used in massage. For other ways to use essential oils please visit our Methods of use section. Please note: that Essential Oils blended with Jojoba do not burn as well in candle vaporisers (unless they are very well heated). The water in the candle vaporiser needs to be quite hot and the newer open style burners just don’t heat the water/oil up enough, so if you are purchasing a new vaporiser make sure you get an enclosed one.
We recommend electric diffuser that uses ultrasonic waves to diffuse the water with essential oils into tiny molecules, producing an elegant mist, releasing the essential oils in their 100% purest form and enhancing the effect of aromatherapy.

If symptoms persist consult your healthcare practitioner. Avoid: whilst pregnant; if you are a diabetic; if you have prostate problems.
