Angelica Angelica archangelica Garden Angelica Wild Celery

ANGELIQUE, veut être plantée en terre grasse & en belle exposition. On la multiplie de semences & de plant enraciné. On aura soin de la lever de terre en Octobre; pour en ôter le peuple qui trace beaucoup, & qui en emplîroît un jardin.

La racine de cette plante est estimée souveraine contre les maladies pestilentiells: elle est sudorifique, cordiale, propre dans les fiévres malignes, petite vérole, poupre, & autres maladies contagieuses. On met environ deux onces de sa racine desséchée, bouiller dans trois pintes d’eau, & on la donne par verrées à boire aux malades.


ANGELICA, wants to be planted in loam & in good exposure. It is propagated by seeds & rooted plants. Care will be taken to raise it from the ground in October; to remove and divide crowded root ball and trace roots, and which will take over a garden.

The root of this plant is considered sovereign against pestilential diseases: it is sudorific, cordial, clears malignant fevers, smallpox, purple [Porphyria-diagnosed by purple urine], & other contagious diseases. We put about two ounces of its dried root, boil in three pints of water, and we give it as a drink to the sick by the glassful.
