Angelica Root (Archangelica Officinalis)
Angelica is used to balance the nervous system in modern Traditional Western Herbalism.
It is said to help cleanse the lungs and the digestive system, and to improve circulation issues, the lymphatic system, and anxiety.
Angelica archangelica is also used extensively for treating urinary infections, rheumatism, and colds. It is also recommended for the treatment of fever as it acts as a diaphoretic.
A number of recent studies show that taking Angelica archangelica promptly after a stroke can greatly reduce the level of brain damage. It is also used as a laxative and as a migraine treatment.
Furthermore, it has various culinary applications and is frequently utilized in the manufacturing of gin and other spirits. Its candied leaves can be used as a garnish or decoration.
◉ 1-3 teaspoons of loose tea (or 3g up to 3 times) daily. If more than one herbal mixture is consumed at the same period of time, reduce the amount of tea accordingly.
◉ When herbs are used for an extended period of time, it is suggested to consume a herbal remedy with a ratio of 3 to 1. For example:
- If you choose to take it for 3 weeks, have a one-week pause.
- If it is taken for a 30-day period, have a 10-day pause.
That does not apply to herbs and fruits that have a laxative effect.
◉ Should be stored in airtight glass containers -in a cool, dark, and dry place- to preserve the flavor, texture, and properties.
◉ Before adding a new herbal remedy or supplement to your daily routine, you should consult with a medical doctor or holistic health practitioner.
