Product Abstract: Angelica is a large hairy, biennial plant with ferny leaves and white flowers that can grow 5 to 8 feet tall. Commonly known as the “female ginseng,” the Angelica sinensis herb grows in the high mountains of China, Japan, and Korea where it was traditionally used, especially in Chinese medicine, for its ability to soothe menopausal symptoms and negative moods as well as for its skin enhancing properties. It is believed that its name originated from the belief that it had a Divine Source, as its effects were so potent. Angelica Root CO2 Essential Oil can be used in Aromatherapy to relieve mental exhaustion as well as for dealing with dry skin conditions. As a fixative, it is tenacious and its rich herbaceous aroma gives it a great strength of diffusion.
The CO2 extraction of Angelica Root yields a greater number of aromatic compounds from the root than any other process used to distill essential oils. At a low temperature, carbon dioxide (or CO2) can be pressurized until it becomes liquid. This liquid then acts as a solvent, and is used to extract the oil from plants. After the extraction is completed, the vessel is brought back to room temperature, and the CO2 rapidly converts to gas, leaving behind a high-quality oil that is free of chemical solvents.
Cautions: This oil is photo-toxic; after any application to the skin, avoid direct exposure to sunlight for up to 12 hours. Dilute before use; for external use only. May cause skin irritation in some individuals; a skin test is recommended prior to use. Contact with eyes should be avoided.
