Agonis fragrans, steam distilled from leaves and young branches, Australia

I've resisted importing this newly discovered essential oil for two or three years now, for philosophical reasons. However many of our clients have asked for it, so we finally bought some in. (We'd bought a tiny amount to use as samples in The Energetic Oils kit, but not enough to offer at retail.)

Fragonia™ is an interesting oil. The ONLY trademarked essential oil that I have ever encountered.  Evidently there are several varying chemotypes of Agonis fragrans, and only one has the unique balance of this oil. The producer raised a plantation of the specific chemotype, and trademarked the product name.   There may or may not be some advantages to the consumer in this; I'm not sure.

However, the oil does appear to have some interesting and beneficial qualities. 

The producer says:  Dr. Daniel Penoel has been working to determine the clinical application of this oil.  Preliminary work indicates that it has significant anti-microbial activity.  It is an extremely balanced oil, with the oxides (cineol...which gives eucalyptus oil its distinctive aroma), monoterpines (alpha pinene) and monoterpenols (linalol, etc.) in a near perfect 1:1:1 ration.

Tony Burfield describes the aroma as "a pleasant fresh cineolic odour with a hint of a citrus note (which becomes more pronounced after a few minutes)mixed with a slight spicy cinnamon tonality and sweet balsamic undertones. The dry down is very faint being sweet, soapy and woody balsamic."  I would never call it a favorite, to my nose it still smells quite medicinal, but much pleasanter than, for example, Tea tree or Niaouli.

I have read that it should be an ideal replacement for Teatree, that it is gentle and safe enough for children, and more appealing in aroma.  I've seen case studies where the use of Fragonia™ has had amazing results with people suffering from intractable respiratory infections.  There are case studies of its being used very effectively in cases of bacterial Tonsillitis.

It is said to be antimicrobial, as well as helpful with Candida. It is also said to be a powerful anti-inflammatory, and a pain reliever, especially helpful with the pain associated with arthritis, as well as muscle and joint pain. Dr.  Penoel strongly recommends it for all respiratory disorders, whether in sinus areas or in the lungs.  It is also said to stimulate and enhance the immune system.

However this new oil seems to have amazingly strong emotional effects, having a deep action on the psyche.  There are case studies of people with longstanding emotional blockages who were able to find release.  The essential oil seems to both release tension and have a relaxing/calming effect on the mind.  Dr. Peneol says that the use of Fragonia™ at bedtime will improve the depth and the relaxing effects of sleep.

Several writers have mentioned Fragonia Essential Oil's effect of bringing peace and inner harmony to those using it.

Robbi Zeck has written this reflection on Fragonia in "The Blossoming Heart".   See the GC/MS from the producer/developer of this trademarked oil here.
