Angelica archangelica, used for millenia to protect against toxins and infection, to relieve spasm and ensure the flow of blood and lymph, named for the protectors of the heavens (much to Culpeper’s disgust!) It has the aromatic, warming celery like scent/taste of its family the Apiaceaes, which some say (much to my confusion) they find unpleasant. I really like it. People use it for both digestive and respiratory health. matthew Wood says that it helps to balance the sympathetic and parasympatheic nervous system and help with digestion and assimilation of nutrients, particularly fats.
