Contraindication: The Angelica root essential oil is neither toxic nor an irritant. But the oil sensitizes the skin to UV light. This is because it contains bergapten, a chemical compound found in plants that cause phototoxicity. For this reason, avoid using it before exposing the skin to any UV light source or the sun. Pregnant Women and those with diabetes should avoid using this essential oil. Breastfeeding moms and those under a doctor’s care should only use it under the directions of a physician. Angelica root essential oil can be irritating and it should not be used undiluted. Carry out a skin patch test before applying it topically by applying it on the inside of your arm and tying it with a bandage. Wait for 24-48 hours to see if you will have any irritation. In case you have pre-existing conditions or are under a drug prescription, it is best to seek medical advice before using Angelica root essential oil as a form of treatment. You should not use it on children, especially those under three years. You should also not use it on pets that are expected to be outside for a long period. Keep the essential oil in a dark, airtight container and store it in a refrigerator to avoid oxidation.
