Herb Spotlight: Angelica Root for Cough & Cold

WARNING: Pregnant women should consult with a doctor before ingesting angelica is it can induce a miscarriage.

I have a couple of older jars of dry herbs on my shelf that I deemed noteworthy before later forgetting what exactly they were good for. In herbal magic Angelica root is the herb of Archangel Michael and is used to expel demons and bad energy. The herb itself, in my case I use the dried root.

How Does It Work? 

Angelica contains aromatic digestive bitters that can help with so many gut derived issues like flatulence, loss of appetite and menstrual cramps. It is also a great choice for colds because it can help expel phlegm while also clearing up breathing issues, coughs and colds. Applied topically, Angelica can cut back on nerve pain and premature ejaculation with it’s numbing effects.

What Do I Do With It?

When I work with this herb I make a tea with it, it is a bit thicker with a sweet flavor but it can also be put into a topical balm or lotion to help with nerve and joint pains. Burn the flowers, roots and/or stems to inspire ourselves to see our karmic path, it will also inspire healing and the exorcism of evil in any space or person.
