Botanical Description:
Angelica archangelica, commonly known as angelica or garden angelica, is a biennial herbaceous plant native to northern and eastern Europe as well as parts of Asia. It belongs to the Apiaceae family, which includes other well-known plants such as parsley, celery, and fennel. Angelica has a robust, hollow stem that can reach heights of up to 2 meters. The plant has large, bipinnate leaves with serrated edges and small white or greenish-yellow flowers arranged in umbels. The root of the angelica plant is thick, fleshy, and aromatic, with a pale brown colour and a strong, musky odour.

Angelica root has a long history of use in traditional herbal medicine and culinary applications. It has been valued for centuries for its aromatic and medicinal properties, as well as its culinary uses. Angelica root is often referred to as the "holy spirit root" or "herb of the angels" due to its reputed ability to ward off evil spirits and protect against illness. In addition to its spiritual significance, angelica root is used throughout history to aid a variety of health conditions.
