Fragonia is a gentle yet powerful essential oil being a superb immune system stimulant and a very comforting emotional healer. It relieves muscle pain, and it works very efficiently in resolving respiratory infections. Fragonia™ is produced only in Australia and is still a relatively new essential oil. It is becoming very popular among aromatherapists because it has a similar property of Tea Tree but has citrus, spicy floral note. What is extraordinary and rare is that it has a perfect ratio of oxides-monoterpenes and monoterpenes (1:1:1); it is, therefore, it’s a gentle oil safe for children older than 3 years of age. It is used as an anti-microbial agent (bacterial, viral and fungal), anti-inflammatory (very mild on the skin yet very effective), expectorant, immune support, an analgesic for muscles and joints, menstrual pain soother as well as an emotional balancer. This oil is fast becoming a “must-have” for every essential oil first-aid kit. Fragonia™ is a registered trademark.
