During the Middle Ages in France, Angelica was used for its excellent medical properties and as a herb. It was recommended for the overworked or convalescing. Angelica essential oil has hydrating and toning properties, which also helps to restore and preserve beauty.
Some Provençal locals still embrace Angelica’s healing properties today, by brewing its root as a tea or chewing on it.
L’Occitane has launched a new line of Angelica’s products, and I’m happy to admit I’ve tried one of them. I’ve been using the Hydration Mask for a couple weeks now, and I’m LOVING the results.
