Angelica Root Tincture (Angelica archangelica), sometimes known as Wild Parsnip, Holy Ghost Root, Garden Angelica, Wild Celery, and Norwegian Angelica is used extensively in herbal medicine.

It grows wild in northern climes but is cultivated in central Europe, most notably in France.

Uses for Angelica Root Tincture:-

The main constituents of Angelica are the volatile oils, valeric acid, angelic acid, angelicin, safrole, scopoletin, and linoleic acid, making it useful in the treatment of fevers, colds, coughs, flatulent colic and other stomach disorders. A medicinal infusion made from stems, seeds, or root is carminative, diaphoretic, emmenagogue, sedative, stomachic and tonic.

Angelica contains vitamin B12, Zinc, Thiamin, Sucrose, Riboflavin, Potassium, Magnesium, Iron, Fructose, Glucose, and many other trace minerals.

Externally it is used as a medicinal gargle for sore throats and mouths and, particularly, the leaf, as a medicinal poultice for broken bones, swellings, itching and rheumatism. An infusion of Angelica root, used as a wash for the face, is said to prevent acne. A powder made from the dried root is used for athlete’s foot, as well as an insecticide and pesticide.

It has an antibacterial action, preventing the growth of various bacteria.

It is used to flavour many liqueurs  such as Chartreuse and Bénédictine and the Scandinavian Aquavits but is also used in cookery to flavour omelettes and jams. The sugared stems are used as decoration.
