Angelica is useful for coughs, bronchitis and pleurisy, especially if the illness is accompanied by fever or preceded by a cold. As a digestive agent, it has been found useful in stimulating the appetite and is known to act as an antiseptic in cystitis and urinary infections. Angelica, in old herbal texts from Europe and other places, is highly regarded for protection against contagious diseases, for purifying the blood, and for curing nearly everything imaginable.
