Description: Angelica Root Essential oil is also known as Dong Quai or female ginseng, Angelica is a rather large hairy, biennial plant with leaves white flowers. It can grow 4 to 9 feet tall. Oils are commonly extracted by the CO2 method because it yields a larger amount of aromatic compounds from the root than any other known processes used in essential oil distillation. The distillation is done by pressurizing carbon dioxide (or CO2) until it becomes liquid. This liquid is than used as a solvent to extract the oil from the root. After the extraction is completed, the vessel is brought back to room temperature, and the CO2 quickly converts to gas, leaving behind a high-quality oil that is free of chemical solvents.
