Botanical Name: Angelica sinensis
Plant Part: Root
Extraction Method: CO2 Extracted
Description: Angelica Root Essential oil is also known as Dong Quai or female ginseng, Angelica is a rather large hairy, biennial plant with leaves white flowers. It can grow 4 to 9 feet tall. Oils are commonly extracted by the CO2 method because it yields a larger amount of aromatic compounds from the root than any other known processes used in essential oil distillation. The distillation is done by pressurizing carbon dioxide (or CO2) until it becomes liquid. This liquid is than used as a solvent to extract the oil from the root. After the extraction is completed, the vessel is brought back to room temperature, and the CO2 quickly converts to gas, leaving behind a high-quality oil that is free of chemical solvents.
Color: Reddish brown liquid
Scent: Angelica root has a peppery, rich, herbal, earthy, woody, and musk odor.
Strength of Aroma: Strong
Cautions: Angelica Essential Oil is generally considered non-toxic but it is known to be photo-toxic. After any application to the skin, avoid direct exposure to strong sunlight for up to 12 hours. Avoid during pregnancy.

I'm not sure if I can review this essential oil right now, accept to say I've never used it before but I plan on experimenting with it. I thought that I was purchasing White Angelica oil. However, this oil is a rich deep medicinal smelling oil . I have taken dong qui orally in the past this smells exactly like it. I will research how to use the oil.

I have only used this product in a warmer so far, but have many plans for massage oils and blends. This Angelica has immediate calming effects and I just love it.
