History: Angelica’s name is Latin for "angel-like" and refers to its heavenly scent. Archangelica is "an angel of the highest order," or in Greek it comes from the word arkhangelos, meaning "chief angel.” Originating in Spain, Angelica root was one of the few chosen spices exported from Europe to the Orient. It has since been used as both a flavoring and as an apothecary drug. Held in the highest regard, it has been belovedly referred to as "the root of the Holy Ghost." It is also a key flavoring for the alcohol spirit: Cointreau liqueur.
