This plant was thought to aid digestion and Nicholas Culpeper, a 17th Century herbalist, claimed it could provide resistance to "all epidemical diseases". These 'heavenly' properties associated with the plant gave rise to its name "angelic". Today the plant is used in candy form as decoration on cakes.
