Australian Oils: Fragonia - Your Australian protector
In Australia we have many wonderful essential oils with a multitude of therapeutic properties. The traditional Tea Tree oil is renowned for this natural therapeutic properties, but Tea Tree oil is not the only Australian oil that can help us heal.
The 'Australian Oils' blogs will be investigating an Australian essential oil every week and I will discuss the oil, their amazing properties, explaining what each term means and ways to use them.
Fragonia - Your Australian Protector
Fragonia is a trade mark name given to the oil extracted from the Agonis fragrans grown in Western Australia exclusively by The Paper Bark Co. Being part of the Myrtaceae family it is a cousin to the Tea Tree and can sometimes be known as the Coarse Tea Tree and is a native bush to Western Australia.
Fragonia is one of my favourite oils because not only does it have a beautiful aroma, it can balance the emotions and nervous system, help with aches and pains as well as helping protect us from all nasty germs.
So why did I refer to Fragonia as Your Australian Protector? It comes down to the multitude of therapeutic properties, that will help us protect ourselves naturally against those nasty bugs that now seem to affect us all year round. The Properties or actions listed to Fragonia are:
Analgesic: Reduces pain sensation
anti-bacterial: Prevents bacterial growth
anti-fungal: Prevents fungal growth
anti-infectious: Prevents uptake of infection
anti-inflammatory: Alleviates inflammation
anti-microbial: Prevents microorganism growth
anti-putrescent: Acts against putrefaction
immunostimulant: Stimulates the action of the immune system
mucolyic: Breaks down mucus
pectrol: Beneficial for diseases or conditions of the chest and respiratory system
restorative: Strengthens and revives the body systems
spasmolytic: Eases smooth muscle spasms
vulnerary: Heals wounds and sores by external application
Wow! What an Aussie allrounder! With its clean, fresh, slightly citrus and slightly spicy and earthy aroma, Fragonia's aroma is more pleasant than Tea Tree.
Because it is such an Aussie allrounder it blends well with most Australian Essential Oils including the Eucalyptus family, Myrtle family, Tea Tree family, Cypress family, Sandalwood, Kunzea and Tasmanian Black Pepper.
Fragonia also blends well with international oils such as basil, bay laurel, bergamot, black pepper, chamomile, Frankincense, geranium, ho wood, lemon, lemongrass, manuka, niaoulli orange, palmarosa, rosemary, spearmint and thyme.
I love this oil on its own or blended with other Australian Essential oils especially Honey Myrtle this is why I have added Fragonia to my store. It is available as a single oil part of Mantsa Wellness Australian Essential Oil collection or as part of Mantsa Wellness Protective Blend: Shield
