A colourless to pale yellow, volatile oil obtained by steam distillation from the fresh leaves and twigs of the Agonis Fragrans tree.
Please note that we have extremely limited quantities of Fragonia in stock due to supplier issues. This wonderful essential oil is supplied from just one company in Australia and local forest fires at the start of 2016 burned almost the entire plantation. Some of the rootstock is already growing back and in 2017 the company were able to plant seed that they had stored, but the first harvest isn't due until 2019.

Traditional Aromatherapy Uses
Traditionally used by qualified aromatherapists as an effective anti fungal in people with suppressed immune systems.
It helps with digestive disorders including candida.
It is a relatively recent addition to the aromatherapy world but as such, it has had a huge amount of research done on it. New Zealand homoeopaths “proved” the effects of the oil and brought to attention its ability to release long held blockages and emotions in the body and mind. These appear to be released gently in the dream state.
An extremely balanced oil that has a near perfect 1:1:1 ratio of oxides, monoterpenes, and monoterpenols which so far seems to be unique in aromatherapy. This ratio also appears as a fractal or golden section.
Ongoing research is showing promising results for problems around the female reproductive system and has been used to help menstrual pain, depression, fatigue, insomnia and breast tenderness.
Fragonia seems to work well with jet lag by regulating the pineal gland.
A great choice for all respiratory disorders as well as sinus problems and throat infections especially when used in steam inhalations as an expectorant.
It is considered to be a good tonic for the immune system.
Use with Eucalyptus Smithii to boost and support immune function.
There are several varieties of the Agonis plant but only one has the unique chemical profile that makes Fragonia so special. Large plantings were undertaken and in 2001, one company named the resulting distillation of the oil as Fragonia. Previously, it had only been identified as an aromatic shrub native to Western Australia. The foliage of the tree was used to florists to bulk out bouquets of flowers.
