This comforting, grounding, protective, purifying aroma is known as “scent of the angels”, Angelica Root is an uplifting scent that instills confidence and can help with balancing depression and supporting decisive action from a centered place. Mythology reveals that Archangel Raphael visited a monk in a dream to share that the oil’s virtues could be used as an antidote to the plague. This diaphanous chrism helps to calm the emotions and nervous system. It also assists in clearing toxins and releasing the past. Make a spritz to support renewing the energy field. Angelica may also help in clearing respiratory imbalances, improving digestion, and boosting circulation throughout the body, including the skin.
