A lesser known, but endlessly useful herb, Angelica Holy Ghost has been used for centuries as a flavoring for liqueurs, seasoning for fish, essential oils, and fragrances. Even the stems themselves can be candied! Similar in aroma to musk or juniper, Angelica has an interesting history and a wide variety of purposes.

Medicinal Properties:
Angelica is an excellent digestive tonic ingredient because it stimulates the production of digestive enzymes. It is used to improve the appetite and the assimilation of nutrients. The volatile oil contained in angelica makes it a good carminative to relieve gas. Angelica is beneficial during convalescence and debility. The seeds are used to flavor alcoholic beverages and are considered milder in nature than the root.

Planting Instructions:
Angelica seeds need a cold spell to break dormancy and must be stratified. Seeds sown directly where the plants are to grow in the Autumn will naturally be exposed to this over winter. Indoor sown Angelica seeds should be planted into moist compost and stored in a fridge for 30 days, then moved to the warmth of around 65°F to germinate. Sow the seed in growing cells, trays or pots containing a good quality seed compost with a very light covering of vermiculite as the seeds need light to germinate. The seedlings should be transplanted when they have their first set of true leaves. Older plants are less amenable to root disturbance and transplantation than young seedlings so plant into their final positions at a distance of about 1m (3ft) apart.
