History: Language of Flowers meaning -- inspiration; magic. Angelica's sweet stems and seeds have been used for European candies and other confections since the Vikings brought the herb to central Europe in the 10th century. Preserved legal texts of the 12th century state that a tenant farmer who had an angelica garden must be allowed to take the plants when he moved. It is first mentioned medicinally by European herbalists in the 15th century. The name is reported to have been given it by a monk when the Archangel Raphael descended and announced it was a cure for the plague. Its reputation as a health-restorer has followed it through the centuries. Another explanation of the name of this plant is that it blooms on the day of Michael the Archangel and is on that account a preservative against evil spirits and witchcraft. North American Indian singers used an angelica decoction made from the stems to gargle before long, sacred ceremonies.
