Angelice is known as the "holy spirit root" or the "oil of angels" by the Europeans. Angelica was believed to be of divine origin because of its strong healing powers. In the time of Paracelsus, Angelica was credited with its ability to protect the people from the plague and its stems were chewed during the plague of 1660 to prevent infection. Archangelica comes from the Greek word "arkhangelos" (arch-angel), due to the myth that it was the angel, Gabriel who told of its use as medicine. It is also said to bloom around the feast day of the Archangel Michael, therefore was given this name.

"From the 10th century on, angelica was cultivated as a vegetable and medicinal plant, and achieved great popularity in Scandinavia in the 12th century and is still used today, especially in Sami culture. In 1602, angelica was introduced in Niort, which had just been ravaged by the plague, and it has been popular there ever since.

"Angelica contains a variety of chemicals which have been shown to have medicinal properties, and the plant is used as a digestive aid. Chewing on angelica or drinking tea brewed from it will cause local anesthesia, but it will heighten the consumer's immune system. It has been shown to be effective against various bacteria, fungal infections and even viral infections. The essential oil of the roots of Angelica archangelica contains β-terebangelene, C10H16, and other terpenes; the oil of the seeds also contains β-terebangelene, together with methylethylacetic acid and hydroxymyristic acid. — information courtesy of Wikipedia.
