Fragonia Essential Oil

Fragonia Essential Oil Profile

The common name Fragonia (TM) is a trademark of the Paperbark Co.

According to The Paperbark Co.'s Web Site and from my general understanding of the situation, the Paperbark Co. grows, harvests and distills a specific chemotype of Agonis fragrans (also known as Taxandria fragrans) that is considered superior to Agonis fragrans that may be harvested and distilled from other sources. The Paperbark Co. trademarked the common name of Fragonia to ensure that only Agonis fragrans originally sourced from them can utilize Fragonia as the common name. All oil named Fragonia, if procured from a reputable source, originates from The Paperbark Co.

Both the botanical names of Agonis fragrans and Taxandria fragrans are used to denote Fragonia Essential Oil.

Fragonia Essential Oil

Therapeutically, Fragonia Essential Oil shines as a respiratory oil. It is also highly anti-microbial. It has also been utilized as an anti-inflammatory oil. Fragonia Essential Oil is comprised of approximately 28-32% Cineole, 30-35% Monoterpenes including 20-28% a-Pinene and 22-30% Monoterpenols including 6-11% Linalol.

For emotional applications, Robbi Zeck, ND, writes that Fragonia Essential Oil can help enhance dignity and reduce fragility. She says "Fragonia carries a unique energy pattern bringing the gift of the power of love... Fragonia gently helps to remove scars from the emotional framework, alleviating toxic residue and mental static..." [Robbi Zeck, ND, The Blossoming Heart: Aromatherapy for Healing and Transformation (Victoria, Australia: Aroma Tours, 2008), 80-81.]

Aromatic Description

To attempt an aromatic comparison, Fragonia Essential Oil is aromatically somewhat similar to Eucalyptus Essential Oils due to its 1,8-Cineole content. Fragonia Essential Oil, however, possesses a beautiful, underlying citrus, floral, slightly woody character.

Fragonia Essential Oil Uses

Respiratory conditions, bronchitis, catarrh, sinus congestion, colds, bacterial and fungal infections, pain, acne, inflammatory muscular conditions. [Valerie Ann Worwood, The Complete Book of Essential Oils and Aromatherapy (Novato, CA: New World Library, 2016), 588-589.]

Major Constituents

See Essential Oil Safety for more complete list of constituents.

Safety Information

Tisserand and Young warn that due to its a-Pinine content (approximately 20-28%), old and oxidized Fragonia should not be used and that careful storage, preferably in the refrigerator is recommended. Reading Tisserand and Young's full profile is recommended. [Robert Tisserand and Rodney Young, Essential Oil Safety (Second Edition. United Kingdom: Churchill Livingstone Elsevier, 2014), 286-287.]
