Herb of the Day: Angelica

Herb of the Day Angelica
Sorry Hamilton fans, we’re not talking about one of the famous Schuyler sisters today.  This herb, Angelica, shares its name with this historical figure.
 Herbal lore from the 16th & 17th century claimed this herb would keep away and cleanse from evil spirits, ghosts, witches & their spells.  In some cultures, the beautiful flowers would be cut, and brought in town and sold as a sign of good-luck.   It is used in food, beverages and is a popular flavoring agent. Modern herbalists use this root, predominantly in Chinese medicine.  It’s utilized in many herbal preparations and valued by herbalists.

The Plant

Angelica archangelica’s native environment is unsure- some say the Middle East, others Eastern North America, growth of this plant has spread worldwide.  It is a resilient plant, there are Angelica plants said to have been growing in the same spot for generations throughout England.  With tall, white flowers, Angelica will often grow up to six feet tall and is a popular ornamental plant.  The stems are unique in that they are hollow and fluted.  With a lovely fragrance, Angelica is a nice addition to any home garden.  The plant dies and produced seeds in its second year.  It is an excellent self-starter and quite resilient.  

 

TriLight Health and Angelica

We use Angelica in ALRG and N R G

Ashley says this about ALRG:

ALRGI have used this product for two years now during a brief period in the year when my seasonal allergies flare up. It always helps and usually completely relieves my symptoms and I don’t feel groggy after using it.”

 

Ann uses N R G

nrg“I have 4 children at home I am homeschooling. Combine that with a nightowl husband, the stresses of life, and I’m zapped. I get to the point if I don’t take some kind of nap in the day, I can’t finish the day. The NRG really helped me. When I have that “washed out” feeling, I take some of it in the afternoon, and it helps me get through the day. I felt like I had more energy while using it. The only
bad thing is I ran out of NRG!!”
