Product Abstract: Angelica is a large hairy, biennial plant with ferny leaves and white flowers that can grow 5 to 8 feet tall. Commonly known as the “female ginseng,” the Angelica sinensis herb grows in the high mountains of China, Japan, and Korea where it was traditionally used, especially in Chinese medicine, for its ability to soothe menopausal symptoms and negative moods as well as for its skin enhancing properties. It is believed that its name originated from the belief that it had a Divine Source, as its effects were so potent. Angelica Root CO2 Essential Oil can be used in Aromatherapy to relieve mental exhaustion as well as for dealing with dry skin conditions. As a fixative, it is tenacious and its rich herbaceous aroma gives it a great strength of diffusion.

The CO2 extraction of Angelica Root yields a greater number of aromatic compounds from the root than any other process used to distill essential oils. At a low temperature, carbon dioxide (or CO2) can be pressurized until it becomes liquid. This liquid then acts as a solvent, and is used to extract the oil from plants. After the extraction is completed, the vessel is brought back to room temperature, and the CO2 rapidly converts to gas, leaving behind a high-quality oil that is free of chemical solvents.

Cautions: This oil is photo-toxic; after any application to the skin, avoid direct exposure to sunlight for up to 12 hours. Dilute before use; for external use only. May cause skin irritation in some individuals; a skin test is recommended prior to use. Contact with eyes should be avoided.

Storage: It is recommended that oils packaged in metal containers (for safe shipping), be transferred into dark glass containers to maintain freshness and attain maximum shelf life.

It smells like a root. The smell stayed in my diffuser for a few days after. Will have to mix it with other oils to use it. Too strong for me.

I was unsure of which Angelica to order, the species "sinensis" from China or the Indian "archangelica". They seem to be very different chemotypes. My research suggests that it is the Angelica sinensis from China that is the traditional "Don Quai", rather than the Indian species, although the chemotypes of the two offered, Co2 or steam extracted, are again quite different. I was looking to include it in SEBASTIAN'S (NDA) body detox massage oil which includes angelica, juniper berry and pink grapefruit and wanted the most therapeutic ct. The recipe sounds wonderful!

Smokey sweet wet burned wood and wet tobacco, almost overwhelming as time passes in pure form. I feel it is cut well with frankincense or citrus based oils. I found initially unpleasant and cloying, but it does grow on you. Had strangely pleasant dreams the night I wore it to bed.

Smoky, floral, woodsy. I like this scent! Can't wait to use it in the treatment of "lady issues".

The scent reminds me of a balm my mom would use on my legs when I was a kid and had growing pain. This is a bit thick, but not too much, actually easy to use because it doesn't fall out of the bottle. I use it in a massage oil for sore muscles and it's very good.

I love the smell of the oil... Very sweet top note smell with some smoky undertones, is the best way I ca describe it. I think it would be a wonderful oil to play around with in the perfuming area!
