Angelica Root essential oil is like having a best friend who is constantly encouraging, supportive and empowering. For centuries, the Angelica Root has been promoted to help manage the stress of daily life. Incredibly complex, Angelica Root essential oil invites fresh energy to the body and brain. It has a strong green-herbal-spicy, somewhat terpenic aroma with other complex nuances.  

Angelica was one of the few spice plants exported to Asia in ancient times. The high yield of Angelica made it an exceptional flavoring agent and apothecary drug. The leaves were used in tea and the stems were made into confectionary treats in Victorian times. During the Middle Ages, Angelica was considered a shielding agent to dispel negative energies. 

Angelica Root was known as the “Root of the Holy Ghost” and was used to increase protection in superstitious times. Its Latin species name is archangelica. Like many oils derived from the root of the plant, it is considered, grounding and relaxing. In perfume blends, Angelica is considered musky. Mixing it into your favorite perfume or massage oil can add a delicate spiciness.

Angelica Root is native to Europe and is sourced from a plant that grows up to six feet tall and blooms soft clusters of pale-green flowers. Angelica essential oil can be derived from the seeds or root. The root oil is considered to have a stronger earthy note. The essential oil is extracted through steam distillation and is photosensitizing. Use in small proportions and with sun warnings in mind.

Is Angelica Root essential oil phototoxic?
  • Certain essential oils contain natural components known as furanocoumarins. This is more common in citrus essential oils but does occur in other oils as well such as Angelica Root. Furanocoumarins cause essential oils to be phototoxic, meaning the oil can cause burns and skin irritation if sun and UV light exposure occurs. Most essential oils are not phototoxic, but it is important to check an oil’s safety information on its product page or label before using it topically to ensure that it’s safe to be worn. This also applies to essential oil blends containing phototoxic oils.
Why does Angelica Root essential oil have a maximum recommended dilution rate?
  • Certain essential oils, including Angelica Root, require specific precautions that go beyond generalized recommended dilution rates. These oils are given a “max dilution rate” as they can contain potent skin allergens or constituents that are detrimental in concentrations above the max dilution. Angelica Root can cause a phototoxic reaction if used above its recommended max dilution rate and worn topically in the sun. However, it can safely and effectively be used when diluted at or below 0.8% dilution.
