How it Heals

In Chinese medicine, Angelica regulates menstruation by generating new blood, invigorating blood flow, and dispersing cold blood. It also addresses constipation by assisting the intestines with increased fluid. 

In Western medicine, Angelica provides Folic Acid, Iron, Biotin, Calcium, and Vitamins B12, A, and E. It has antibacterial properties and has been shown to balance hormones and stimulate the immune system. 

Fun fact: Angelica is known as the ‘female ginseng’ because of its ubiquitous use in treating women’s health conditions.

How We Use It

“Angelica is not only commonplace in a Chinese medicine cabinet, but also a kitchen. It’s often cooked with Astragalus (Huang Qi) into a chicken soup in order to aid recovery from labor or a particularly painful period.”
