Essential Oil of the Week: Angelica Root

Posted on September 08, 2014 by Emily Villanueva

Angelica Root has a number of healing properties. The essential oil is anti-fungal, antibacterial, antispasmodic, depurative, diaphoretic, and used in traditional Chinese medicine to aid the reproductive system. Mainly produced in Hungary and Siberia, Angelica Root essential oil has a sharp, green scent, with peppery overtones. It also blends the best with citrus and woody notes for an overall herbaceous aroma.


In addition to its medicinal properties, Angelica Root essential oil is widely used as a flavoring agent in the food and beverage industry due to its sweet spiciness.  Its origins trace back to 16th Century Europe, where it gained tremendous popularity as a treatment for the Plague. Many people have claimed that it fights infection, stimulates the immune system, and helps eliminate toxins.
