Angelica Root (lat. Angelica Archangelica L.) is a plant known in folk medicine for centuries. Supposedly, it was given to people by the Archangel Gabriel himself. Angelica was cultivated by monks in the Middle Ages and considered a miracle cure for all diseases, and chewing angelica root was considered a recipe for longevity. Angelica has been used as a remedy for digestive disorders and as an ointment for ulcers and wounds. Angelica, called the "European Ginseng", has excellent healing properties and is still used in natural medicine today.

Put half a tablespoon of shredded roots in a glass and pour boiling water (about 200 ml). Leave to infuse for 15 minutes. After this time, strain. The infusion can be drunk 1 / 4-1 / 3 cup 2-3 times a day - before a meal (to aid digestion) or after a meal (as a carminative). The infusion can also be consumed at bedtime - as a sedative and to help you fall asleep.


Side effects

In an overdose of angelica, the effect is completely opposite to the intended one - nausea, loss of appetite, headache, itching, and sometimes sleep disturbances may occur. Therefore, infusions or tinctures should be drunk in certain amounts.


It is not recommended for pregnant and breastfeeding women. Willingness to use angelica during pregnancy should be reported to the attending doctors and the decision should be consulted with them. There is a lack of reliable data on the safety of the use of this raw material during pregnancy and breastfeeding. Due to its strong effect on the digestive system, including the alleged spasmolytic effect, it is suspected that it could lead to, for example, uncontrolled uterine contractions.

People who are sensitive to the sun's rays cannot expose their skin to the sun when taking preparations with angelica. It is also recommended to use it with caution in inflammation of the glomeruli and the appendix.
