Angelica Root Oil, dark brown in color, has a pungent, herbaceous, long lasting fragrance that often serves as a fixative. The extraction process is arrived by obtaining Angelica balsam from the roots with alcohol, then evaporating and extracting the residue. It is less well known than many other oils, but could be an important one to those who need a strong root oil to lift depression and achieve emotional balance. Use angelica with other stimulant and tonic essential oils, such as jasmine in baths and foot massages.
Angelica is known to stimulate digestion, help dispel gas and calm the nerves. Since the oil warms the system, it is especially helpful by using in an abdominal massage blend when bloating or cramps are present. Angelica is also good to add to treatments for colds, congestion and fevers.

and other citrus oils. Use it in a massage blend or combine it with one of the citrus oils in an aroma lamp to lift the spirits.
