Western Aangelica is said to have been named after an angel who revealed the herb to a European monk as a curative. It has a long history of folk use in Europe, Russia and among Native American tribes.Matthew Wood describes Angelica as Bear Medicine. It warms and stimulates, promoting blood movement and helping one build tissues.
People with a Vata constitution, who are pale, thin and potentially undernourished or recovering from a grave trauma or illness are well-suited to the rebuilding aspect of this herb. According to Wood, Angelica can also be quite helpful for those who are of a stout, strong, Bear-like constitution.
Angelica has been used to balance the nervous system in modern Traditional Western Herbalism practice. It opens the pores and channels, allowing stagnated digestion that has or been shut down by an overactive sympathetic nervous system to resume a natural course. It encourages digestion that has become insatiable or excessive due to an overactive parasympathetic nervous system to relax. This supports the long-standing European use of Angelica Root as a carminative to promote healthy digestion.
According to Traditional Western Herbalism, Angelica is pungent, bitter, sweet, oily, warm and stimulating. This plant has an affinity to the lungs, digestive system, blood and lymphatic system. For clearing the lungs of wet muscous combine Angelica with Thyme, Eucalyptus and Ginger Root. For digestion issues with gas and bloating combine Angelica with Anise, Peppermint and Coriander. For blood circulation and stagnation combine Angelica with Burdock, Yarrow and Yellow Dock. For moving the lymphatic system combine Angelica with Cleavers, Red Clover and Echinacea Root.
