Exploring Transcultural Constants

Angelica Root, German and Roman Chamomile, Hops, and Lovage Root or Yarrow are typical essential oils from the moderate climates of central Europe.

These plants and their essential oils are more or less transcultural constants. Where there is beer, their is Hops.

Lovage root apparently has a composition practically identical to the Chinese staple Dong Quai. Angelica Archangelica is historically credited with many healing properties.

Interestingly the Chinese description given by Taoist master jeffrey Yuen addresses the most easily utilized quality of the essential oil.

It supports the spleen in separating the indigestible from the nutritious and quickly restores weight to those who are asthenic or underweight.

In addition authentic Angelica root, and to a lesser degree seed oils delight with the most pronounced musk note.

Plants that thrive in moderate climates, such as Angelica., German Chamomile, and Lovage, do well in Bavaria, which surprises the visitor with its duality of strong agricultural tradition and the splendor of an absolutist past.

Oils arise from nature. Their activity is shaped by the ambient ways of the plant world. Essential oils do not act as weapons but as agents of interaction. They are a key ingredient  of life itself, strengthening its fabric and preconditions.
