Latin name: Angelica archangelica


Despite the care taken during the production process to mechanically remove foreign material, there may still remain some. It is therefore recommended to make a visual control, and if necessary a sorting, before any use.
No refund request in relation with foreign material will be accepted.


The anxiolytic properties of the plant would be linked to the coumarin (imperatorin and isoimpératorine) it contains. Its essential oils help to reduce the stagnation of the intestine content that causes gas and bloating.

    Decoction: Put 1 g to 2 g cut roots in 250 ml cold water, bring to a boil, simmer 10 minutes, filter and take 1 to 3 cups a day. To strengthen, preferably 10 minutes before meals. To ease digestion and to calm, after meals. In massage of the joints in case of rheumatism or in application on cutaneous mycoses.
    Infusion: add 10 g of angelica roots to 200 ml of water, bring to a boil, let infuse about ten minutes (in order to obtain an effective dose of active substances) and drink  1 cup several times a day. To calm, relax, rest the body, keeping its tone and giving it a balanced dynamic.
    Another sometimes recommended preparation is the cold infusion: let macerate the dry roots (one teaspoon of plant per cup of water) in fresh water for approximately ten hours, then heat slightly, filter and drink ½ to 2 cups a day.

    Precautions for use

    • The plant may have an abortive action and is therefore contraindicated during pregnancy. However, as the German pediatricians regularly use it against infantile gastro-intestinal disorders it could be useful during lactation.
    • Caution is recommended in case of ulcer or hyperacidity.
    • At high doses, angelica becomes exciting for the nervous system and, especially in the evening, might cause insomnia.
    • Store in a cool and dry place, away from light, in well closed packing.
    • Possible traces of celery, sesame and mustard.
