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