Fragonia Essential Oil Benefits

Salvatore Battaglia: Fragonia may help relieve congestion, respiratory conditions, arthritis, muscle and joint pain, acne, fungus, and cold sores. Psychologically, the essential oil calms and creates feelings of tranquility and serenity, promoting better sleep. Energetically, this oil is cooling and primarily indicated for hot and inflammatory conditions. The oil also nurtures the spirit, helps resolve past traumas and unresolved family issues, and gently helps remove scars from past emotional pain.

The Complete Book of Essential Oils and Aromatherapy: The properties of fragonia are similar to tea tree oil but fragonia has a more pleasant scent. Use this essential oil to help relieve acne, bacterial and fungal problems, sinus congestion and mucus, colds, respiratory conditions, inflammatory muscular conditions, and pain.

The Complete Aromatherapy and Essential Oils Handbook for Everyday Wellness: The scent of fragonia may help open blocked emotions and release deeply rooted grief and psychological trauma. For a soothing bedtime blend, combine this essential oil with geranium, mandarin, sandalwood, or vetiver essential oil. Also, you can add fragonia to massage blends to relive muscle stiffness, soreness, and cramping.

Aromatica: A Clinical Guide to Essential Oil Therapeutics, Volume 2: Fragonia acts as a stimulant with a secondary restorative effect. The oil may help relieve conditions involving low energy, mental and physical fatigue, and depression. This oil also helps relieve respiratory conditions with mucus congestion. Psychologically, fragonia helps resolve distressed feelings and promote emotional balance.

Plant Therapy: Fragonia helps support respiratory health, soothe chapped, relieve red areas on skin, reduce pain from overexertion or normal wear and tear on aging joints, and promote deep relaxation before sleep.

Eden's Garden: Fragonia helps relieve respiratory conditions, promotes focus, improves sleep, soothes pain and inflammation, and reduces stress.

Cheryl Murphy, Certified Aromatherapist: Fragonia essential oil uses in aromatherapy include general skin care, cuts, stings, muscle aches, arthritis, bronchitis, coughs/colds, anxiety, depression, emotional blockages, grief, insomnia, mood swings, stress. ("The Myrtaceae Plant Family." Autumn 2017.3 NAHA Aromatherapy Journal, p. 47.)

Stillpoint Aromatics: Fragonia oil releases both physical and emotional blockages and promotes harmony, peace, and balance. This regulating/balancing oil can help with stuck, congestive conditions and balance the body’s natural healing abilities. When working with the chakras, use fragonia with the second (sacral) chakra to support relationships and creation energy, the fourth (heart) chakra to inspire unconditional love, and the sixth (third eye) chakra to support perspective.

Sacred Oils: Fragonia supports all types of transitions, helping restore balance. The oil boosts the spirits and optimism and has an affinity with the solar plexus chakra.
