Angelica Root Hydrosol

I don't imagine that many people seek out Angelica Root Hydrosol for its aroma. I find it a bit unpleasant on its own, but is nice when blended with other hydrosols and other aromatics. The aroma is slightly more bitter than that of Angelica Root Essential Oil.

Botanical Name

Angelica archangelica

Aromatic Strength

Medium

Shelf Life

Up to 1 year if stored properly (refrigeration is recommended).

Reported Properties, Uses and Applications

Suzanne Catty describes Angelica Root Hydrosol as calming and sedating. For chakra and emotional work, she also reports that Angelica Root Hydrosol is grounding and useful for spiritual and vibrational work. [Suzanne Catty, Hydrosols: The Next Aromatherapy (Rochester, VT: Healing Arts Press, 2001), 76.]

Len and Shirley Price summarize that the Angelica Root Hydrosol that they studied consists of approximately 18-20% ketones and 53-54% alcohols (these ranges do not include the water present in the hydrosol) and possesses the following properties: "analgesic, anticoagulant, anti-infectious, anti-inflammatory, antiviral, bactericidal, calming, cicatrizant, digestive, expectorant, mucolytic, sedative, stimulating." [Len Price and Shirley Price, Understanding Hydrolats: The Specific Hydrosols for Aromatherapy: A Guide for Health Professionals (London: Churchill Livingstone, 2004), 97.]
