Angelica archangelica, commonly known as garden angelica, wild celery, and Norwegian angelica, is a biennial plant from the family Apiaceae, a subspecies of which is cultivated for its sweetly scented edible stems and roots.
Angelica is used for heartburn, intestinal gas (flatulence), loss of appetite (anorexia), arthritis, circulation problems, “runny nose” (respiratory catarrh), nervousness, plague, and trouble sleeping (insomnia).
Premature ejaculation, when applied directly to the skin of the penis in combination with other medicines. The multi-ingredient cream studied in research (SS Cream, Cheil Jedang Corporation) contains Panax ginseng root, angelica root, Cistanches deserticola, Zanthoxyl species, torlidis seed, clove flower, asiasari root, cinnamon bark, and toad venom.
Side Effects: Angelica seems to be safe when used in food amounts, although Canada does not allow the Archangelica species as food ingredients. There isn’t enough information to know if angelica is safe when taken by mouth in medicinal amounts. Angelica root seems to be safe for most adults when used as a cream, short-term. If you take angelica, wear sunblock outside, especially if you are light-skinned. Angelica might make your skin more sensitive to sunlight.
Pregnancy and breast-feeding: Angelica may not be safe when taken by mouth during pregnancy. It’s suggested that angelica can cause uterine contractions, and this could threaten the pregnancy. There isn’t enough information about the safety of taking angelica if you are breast-feeding. Stay on the safe side, and don’t use it.
Substitutes. If a recipe calls for Angelica leaves and you don’t have any (as is likely if you’re in North America), trying using celery or lovage leaves.
To make angelica tea, add one cup of boiling water to one teaspoon of dried angelica and steep covered for at least 10 minutes. Some alternative practitioners suggest drinking 1/3 cup of angelica tea 30 minutes before each meal.
