Chora

Scientific Name: Angelica glauca
Local Name/s: Chora, Choru

Himalayan Angelica! Need I say more!  This generous herb supports our body, mind and Spirit in dozens of ways, especially women.  Use roots for soup and medicine, seeds for a cooking spice, leaves for tea, stalks for a vegetable, and makes elixirs with ginger, and turmeric, etc (use non-metal containers). ‘Choraka’ can mean ‘like white Turmeric/Zeodary’ and Angelica equates it to an Archangel’s gift, the ‘root of the Holy Ghost,’ the Divine Feminine, and indeed this anti-aging root is a ‘feminine ginseng’ that prolongs life, nourishes the Woman, rebuilds blood, and restores hormonal balance.
