The Oil of Angels
Organically grown Angelica Root essential oil may help fight infection, stimulate the immune system and help eliminate toxins.
Angelica Root Essential Oil is used in aromatherapy toward combatting stress, anxiety, and exhaustion.
You may guess from the name that Angelica Root oil is associated with Angels, and you’re right! The legend goes that back in the mid-1600’s, angels came to people and told them to use Angelica Root for illness, especially the Plague. They faithfully chewed the stems and burned the seeds and roots to purify the air, and it was since known to be the antidote for the Plague.
It’s said to bloom on the annual day for Archangel Michael, as protection against evil spirits and disease. Angelica Root has earned its place, even today, as an oil that drives out disease, purifies the blood and balances the body, emotions and mind.
How does Angelica Root essential oil affect the mind, emotions and body, and drive out disease?
Here are just a few ways:
- Expectorant: Angelica Root oil clears out phlegm, dries up infected mucous, and fights infection. It induces sweating, which reduces fever, and is useful in conditions like pneumonia, bronchitis, colds and flu. It relaxes nerves and muscles, and quickly brings up the phlegm without tightening or creating dry hacking cough, so coughing is effective and not exhausting.
- Spasms: Angelica Root relaxes all muscular systems, relieving spasms of the intestine, convulsions, nervous tics and twitches, stomach cramps, diarrhea and painful gas cramps. It works effectively on stressed muscles and nerve endings, irritated by exercise, and physical and emotional tension from work, problems and everyday life!
- Detoxification: Angelica Root drives out disease before it has a chance to start. It stimulates the digestive and lymphatic systems, purifies the blood, and induces sweating, urination and excretion, so excess salt, water, uric acid, fat and bile are quickly and efficiently flushed out of the organs and bloodstream. Conditions like hypertension, high cholesterol, gout, arthritis and kidney problems are effectively relieved.
Tip: Add a drop of Angelica Root oil and a drop of Lavender oil to your bath water or massage onto the soles of your feet before bed, for instant stress relief and peaceful sleep!
