A great umbelliferous all dressed in majesty. Large hollow stems, ribbed like cathedral columns, rise up over 2 meters high to open up in large umbels of white flowers. From up there, they provide an impressive power of inner peace. Mountaineers who usually make noise automatically become quieter as they come across Angelica, even unknowingly. Watch them, you will be surprised!
 
To introduce plants, an effort is made on this website not to dwell on the classic "this plant has been used since antiquity by the Greeks, the Romans, in Chinese or Ayurvedic medicine etc." Believe us, this is not an easy thing to do! Indeed, this is a central point for almost all plants, especially those which come from traditional Indian medicine, since Gedane aims to share their passion through olfactory wonders from this very country. 
 
But now, you are going to be given the chance to learn something absolutely unexpected in botany, which goes exactly in the opposite direction of the usual migration flow of flora: Angelica was exported to the Eastern world by Europeans! 
 
Chinese medicine in particular has made it one of its core assets. The entire world adopted Angelica after the Middle Ages, just as well as Indian plants for example. Many of the so-called "traditional" plants in Europe come from far away and can be found in all fields, all forests... of Orient.
 
Botanically, they are called "naturalised plants" once they have conquered a new territory, settled there, felt so well it would be absolutely impossible to dislodge them whatsoever, and have integrated the local symbiotic system. Plants, like us (or we, like them) can build a new "home" wherever they feel most welcome.
 
This is what happened to Angelica. Its traditional usages in Europe have disappeared over time and the gigantic witches-barbecue led by the Christian church in the Middle Ages has eradicated extensive medical knowledge. The Orient has collected more knowledge from and shown more gratitude to this plant than the Westerners ever have. Even so that now, more species grow there than where it originates. It has thus become a kind of oriental plant.
 
Back in Europe, Paracelsus lastly used Angelica to cure plague in Milan. Doctors then wore necklaces of Angelica to chew roots between consultations and stimulate their immune system. The only tradition that remained from the Old Continent is in deluxe bakery for which the petiole is preserved (please do not try to do that yourself: it always has to be cooked twice and above all must not be mixed up with other plants, yet similar in appearance).
