Angelica, possessing the latin name of Angelica Archangelica, is also known under the common names of Garden Angelica, or the Root of the Holy Ghost and its virtues have long been praised in folklore, dating back into ages of great antiquity. It was used during times of plague to protect against contagion and illness, and was used as an aid in purifying blood and was described by some as a "cure for every conceivable malady," though it was chiefly used against poison, infections, and the spread of the plague. Angelica also came to be heavily associated with Angels and divinity, perhaps in part because it tends to bloom around the same time of the day of Michael the Archangel, casting it into a holy light. In this view, it was frequently used to keep evil spirits away and protect against curses, evil spells, and cruel enchantments.
