Angelica Essential Oil  -  A Nutrition Balancer

Nutrition And Essential Oils

The nutrition in angelica oil creates a balancing effect. It isn't used as a food per se, but the oil can be used in various ways to be absorbed and alter an imbalance in the body. Some of these are:

  • added to your soak tub water
  • combined into a massage oil mix (aids lymph gland drainage)
  • blended into a carrier oil for managing the monthly cycle
  • used in a diffuser
  • contributes to effective digestion
  • soothes minor breathing problems (it is an expectorant)
  • can both calm or stimulate the nerves - it's a balancer

General Plant Therapy Information

Most essential oils should be diluted with an organic carrier oil. They are powerful extracts and can irritate skin. Always read labels and and any other directions that come with your oils.

Oils are not recommended for use during pregnancy as a blanket caution. Do your own searches for this.

Oils come in dark bottles for their protection. It's better not to store them in direct sunlight.

The essential oil energy of angelica is used in lymphatic drainage massages. It enhances detoxification. Indirectly it is an energy booster and is anti aging.

Angelica plant therapy has shown to sooth psoriasis and invigorate dull or congested skin. It also works to diminish fungal growths.

In a cream or lotion for massages or joint rubs this oil will help with:

  • gout
  • arthritis
  • sciatica
  • water retention or edema
  • migraines
  • colds and flus, bronchitis
  • painful menses
  • circulation
  • flatulence, nausea and dyspepsia

Angelica has a sweet herbal type of aroma. It is said to invoke feelings of security and of being protected. I would guess this is because it does relax your nerves. It is known as Archangel Root and Holy Spirit Root and just those labels could optimize your emotional state, according to your beliefs.

Indirectly it could contribute to stop thinking negative thoughts which would boost your immune system naturally. So this sweet oil has an array of benefits to be used in plant therapy.

Garden Angelica or Wild Celery has edible roots and stems. It is used fresh, as a digestive aid. Please note that it resembles some poisonous variations of this species and if you are going to pick wild edible plants you must know how to select the good one!

Centuries ago when liqueurs were made for medicine, Angelica was used to flavour the secret formulas of Chartreuse and Benedictine and I believe, still is. The tiny fruits are used in Absinthe.

The Myth of this plant is that its benefits were revealed by Archangel Michael, hence its name.

Angelica essential oil embodies an aura of spirituality and mysticism because of its history. Yet, it is one of the more practical home remedies in the nutrition of essential oils.
