Angelica (Angelica archangelica)
Angelica is one of the herbs used in the liqueurs Chartreuse, Galliano and Benedictine.
Angelica is any of several herbs in the parsley family with small white or greenish flowers. These plants are native from Greenland to Russia, but are naturalized over most of Europe. Angelica roots, leaves and stems are used in cooking and the fruits are used in various liqueurs. The stems may also be candied and used in jam. Essential oils from the seeds, stem and roots are used to flavor liquors, candy, ice cream and baked goods. Oil from the seeds is also used in perfume and toothpaste.
In many languages Angelica is linked to angels and is considered a remedy against the 'evil eye' and was used as a cure for many illnesses including the plague.
