Notes: Not to be confused with angelica root oil (see here).
There are over 30 types of angelica in the world. Its name comes from the fact that its floral top evokes thoughts of angel’s wings. The plant was used by the ancient Romans and medieval Europeans, and it continues to be used in traditional European, Chinese, and American First Nations medicine. The stems are often candied/crystallized and used as cake decoration.
