The roots and seeds of the Angelica Atropurpurea and other species, if used in the form of a warm infusion, will promote the perspiratory function, and are frequently employed for this purpose in colds, coughs, and the incipient stages of many of the mild forms of fever. The infusion or tincture is highly esteemed by many as a gastric stimulant in spasmodic colic, flatulence, pain in the breast, hysteria, and other nervous disorders.
