If you’re looking to learn about different essential oils, then you’re in the right place! Read below to find out more about Angelica Root essential oil and its many wonders.
Native to France, Angelica archangelica is steam distilled to produce a fresh, peppery and herbaceous oil. Angelica Root is a base note oil that blends well with Cedarwood, Frankincense, Myrrh, Orange and Sandalwood.
Some of the many properties of Angelica Root include antispasmodic, diaphoretic, digestive, diuretic and expectorant. Like Amyris, this oil is beneficial in combatting stress, exhaustion, and anxiety. Combine with Frankincense or Sandalwood in a diffuser blend to promote tranquility. It is also helpful in promoting a healthy immune system and fending off the common cold. Add Angelica Root to homemade body wash with Sweet Orange to start the day with a healthy and invigorating punch. It can be a useful tool in combatting the side effects of nicotine withdrawal as well. Although not a citrus oil, Angelica Root is a phototoxic oil and should not be applied topically before direct sun exposure.
