Angelica is a plant. The root, seed, and fruit are used to make medicine. Angelica is used for heartburn, intestinal gas (flatulence), loss of appetite (anorexia), arthritis, circulation problems, "runny nose" (respiratory catarrh), nervousness, plague, and trouble sleeping (insomnia).
Other names for the herb include angelica archangelica, European angelica, and garden angelica. Herbal angelica should not be confused with Chinese angelica (Angelica sinensis), also called dong quai.
