Rating: Wonderful E.O. and grateful to find it here. I will use it in several applications; be mindful of phototoxicity cautions, but otherwise, do not hesitate. This is a beautiful angelica oil that is very helpful.

Rating: Of the many NDA oils I've ordered, this is one of only two that I haven't been pleased with. It is difficult, if not impossible, to blend with other EOs. It reacts as though it's not oil soluble. More like an oleoresin than an oil. In attempting to blend it it remains in globule form and gets very sticky/messy, even if I only add one drop. I was able to salvage my blend only because this Angelica is so heavy that it settled to the bottom and I was able to siphon off the other oils and leave the Angelica behind.
New Directions Aromatics Response:
Please note as per our msds/c of a Angelica root (China) Steam is not oil soluble. It is soluble in alcohol only (minimum 90%).
First, you need to heat up the Angelica Root to get it out of the bottle. If you add it to the alcohol which is at room temperature, it dissolves until the angelica root cools off in the alcohol and then it clumps up.
To blend with other Essential Oils you need to first dissolve the Angelica Root in the alcohol (make a tincture).
Rating: I love this scent. I can't wait to try it in a PMS bath or something for treating cramps.

Rating: Great oil at the best price I've found. I use this in my bath for it's detoxifying effects. The smell reminds me a little of rootbeer, definitely an earthy, musky odor.

Rating: I hate the smell of Angelica Root. However, it works wonders on my sore hands, the result of early onset arthritis. I have tried to mix it with other oils, but there is something about AR that I simply can't overpower. This, of course, is just my subjective opinion. Despite this, I am still giving this a 5-star rating simply because it works so well and is affordable. I will take the smell of Angelica Root to sore hands any day. Thanks guys!

Rating: This brown oil reminds me of guaiacol, and has an earthy, almost fermented, rooty-spicy character, with a musky background. It's not a thick oil, unlike some other dark ones, and should blend well. With an aroma this complex, steam-distilled angelica root from China can only improve an aromatic composition over time.

Rating: Incredible oil, you can really feel the whole spirit of the root has been extracted. It starts very damp with a deep burgundy smell, it's a sweet one. You can almost taste its sugar qualities when moving away, from some distance it smells more dry and sharper. It's calming but also invigorating by its mysterious overtones. Those only get revealed in the end, where an alcoholic and ink like quality that do not linger long in the nose, as it decomposes in an array of flowery bouquet.

Rating: I have never smelled anything like this. I have Angelica from another company and it smells medicinal. The oil from NDA does not. It is round and full and reminds me of the smell of really good molasses and vanilla mixed together and held a few inches away. Smells divine!!! I will absolutely purchase this one again.

Rating: Hi, I don\'t know how NDA does it but this oil as far as I know is a great oil, but the price is unbeatable! Angelica is usually priced very high, this oil though it comes from China, seems to have the same or close to the same chemical components as the expensive oils. When I\'m able to purchase this quality of oils at a very affordable price, I am now committed to this company, (except when I can\'t get an oil from NDA and I need one for a recipe), I can\'t say enough and I never wrote reviews for any company or product, I tell it the way I see it. Thank You NDA once again!
