Today’s featured oil is one of the newest at Pompeii Organics (our favorite essential oil company). Meet Angelica archangelica!
True to it’s name, Angelica Root is a truly “heavenly” oil! It’s amazing for the immune system as a whole, fighting infection, fungus, viruses, and inflammation. It soothes pain and spastic muscles.
Because of all these properties, Angelica Root also strengthens the respiratory, digestive, lymphatic and nervous systems. It’s recommended for comforting symptoms of depression and sadness and for uplifting the mind and body.
Understandably, this oil is a little higher priced than most others, but the value can’t be beat! When used with care, it can last a long time. Diffuse into the air or mix with a carrier oil for topical use. A word of caution, however: Angelica Root is phototoxic (reacting with sunlight). It can burn and irritate the skin if exposed to sunlight before at least 12 hours have elapsed. Use caution and consult with a certified aromatherapist if you have any questions!
Don’t forget! We’ll be at the Oil City Farmer’s Market in front of the library from 9am to 4 pm today—as long as the weather cooperates. We hope to see you there!
