Angelica has long been known as a healing herb with the ability to cast illness from the body and protect it from harm. It is also associated with Masculine Energy, the Sun and Fire.
Description: During the Great Plague of London in the late-mid 1600’s, a monk claimed an angel visited him in his dreams and presented Angelica as the cure for the epidemic.
After this, it was regarded as “the antidote” to the plague. Royal publications such as: “The King’s Majesty’s Excellent Recipe for the Plague” fuelled this idea and helped
give Angelica its name —meaning Angel.
