Angelica root comes from the aromatic edible flowering plant Angelica archangelica, also known as garden angelica. It is available as an essential oil, absolute, or CO2 extract. Angelica root oil has a very powerful musky, rooty scent with vegetative undertones. It works well in very small percentages to add a botanical musk note to perfumes. It can make the skin more susceptible to sunburn, so it is best used in very small amounts or when you will not be going in the sun. I use it only in very trace amounts.
