Magical Mythology of Angelica Root
Angelica root is put to use in ritual to communicate with other realms especially the fairy and angelic dimension, most commonly with the Archangel Micheal.
Folk stories has it that Archangel Micheal (sometimes Gabriel is named too) came to a monk in a dream and brought this herb to human knowledge to use for healing purposes. At which time humanity was dealing with a plague and eventually Angelica became well known to prevent and treat deadly plagues.
When used in baths, Angelica root strengthens the aura, purifies and clears the aura of low vibrating entities that may attach themselves to you. When low vibrating energies magnetize themselves to your energy field, you may feel depression, deal with negative thoughts, feel confused and attract negative situations wherever you go.
Angelica Root is notable for magical purposes, especially to remove curses, hexes or evil energy that may have been projected toward your or your home. Angelica Roots promotes peace, harmony and healing so this can be an ideal herb to use and also burn in spaces where there may be a lot of discord, sorrow or illness.
Angelica Root opens portals to higher communication with self and your personal thoughts. It enhances mental powers, removes creative blockages and allows you clear communication with your intuition. It is also my favorite herb to place under my pillow in a sachet baggy to remember my dreams.
How to Use Angelica Root:
Essential Oil: Angelica Root oil can be used in oil warmers for its aromatherapy qualities. If you’re dealing with stress, anxiety or exhaustion, Angelica Root may be the herb for you to use in your oil warmer to disperse its aroma throughout any space to promote tranquility and peace.

Aura Baths: Another great way to incorporate Angelica Root to your spiritual rituals is via Aura baths. Many times we may interact with people or visit places where our energy fields can be invaded by low vibrations. These type of people or places can feed off of you and drain you significantly.
