Legend has it that the Archangel Raphael brought angelica root to Charlemagne, Emperor of the West, to save his plague-stricken army. Thanks to these stimulating and toning properties, angelica is often compared to Chinese Ginseng. In addition, some say that in the 18th century, a man from the city of Nice in France, lived until the age of 123 years old thanks to its habit of chewing angelica roots.
Angelica water reinforces skin’s natural hydration, while stimulating the synthesis of aquaporines, water channels of the skin. The essential oil, made from the roots, has toning and stimulating properties. For skincare, angelica essential oil protects skin from free radicals and improves its elasticity.
