Angelica Root Essential Oil

Angelica Root Essential Oil

Balancing, restoring and strengthening. Angelica was arguably the most popular herb of the Middle Ages because it was believed to be a panacea for almost every ailment, as well as being the finest cleansing agent. Its healing powers were so great it was referred to as ‘Angels Herb’ or the ‘Root of the Holy Spirit’ in medieval times. Angelica Root Essential Oil is distilled from the dried roots of this herb and has a woody and herbaceous aroma with peppery top notes.

This essential oil gives a boost to both the nervous and immune systems, plus it delivers a strengthening action to the glandular system which together helps to restore vitality and stamina after illness. Angelica Root Essential Oil is used in aromatherapy massage to maintain flexible mobile joints, and to help with problem skin conditions, painful periods, stress, and burnout.

Aromatherapists often use Angelica Root Essential Oil in detoxification treatments to encourage the movement of lymph and help release an accumulation of toxins, especially with conditions like gout and oedema. It is a tonic for the digestive system, and in skin care treatments angelica has a toning and rejuvenating action that helps dull, dry complexions. Avoid exposure to UV light after using this oil since it is phototoxic.

Second time purchasing from Quinessence and still very happy. Products arrived in a slightly large box for the products ordered to be honest but I ended up using it for something else and of course it's recyclable when I'm done with it so it's fine. The items were in perfect condition and so far have been very kind to my skin and nose :-)

3 January 2018

I ordered a selection of oils for my daughter who was diagnosed with Bronchitis. I had sent her instructions on how to blend with a little carrier oil and how to apply it. As I live in France and she is in the U.K. I requested that they would be sent direct and payed the extra for 24 hour delivery . They arrived by midday the following day and she started using them straight away. She noticed a big improvement overnight and will continue to use for a week or 2 until fully recovered.
