Sometimes I purchase an oil that intrigues me and then I sit on it for a bit until the time is right to explore it’s unique properties. Fragonia is such an oil. Peta and John Day of the Paperbark Company have trademarked the common name Fragonia™ as they are the first and only growers and distillers of this unique oil.
There has been extensive research since 2000 on Fragonia by botanists, aromatherapists, practitioners, manufacturers, The University of West Australia, and Dr. Daniel Penoel. Fragonia™ seems to be an oil that brings harmony to the physical, emotional and spiritual aspects of the body and psyche.
Closely related to Tea Tree, Fragonia is considered a top note and has what I would describe as a delicate citrusy eucalyptus smell. Chemically, the oxides, monoterpenes and monoterpenols are balanced in a 1:1:1 ratio which explains it’s balancing properties.
On the physical level, Fragonia is significantly anti-microbial and thereby excellent for sinus and respiratory infections. It is also effective against Candida, tonsillitis, and staphylococcus aureus. Fragonia is a decongestant, gentle expectorant and immune builder. It can be applied to your lymph glands in the neck, armpits and groin to boost the immune system. Gentle on the skin, Fragonia is good for kids as an alternative to Tea Tree.
It is in the realm of mind and spirit that Fragonia shines. Fragonia is amazingly powerful on the mind and emotions. There are case studies where individuals using Fragonia were able to release long standing emotional blockages . Dramatic results were experienced in the upper chakra areas. This can help with exploring unresolved core issues and can transform troubled family relationships. There seems to be increased self awareness and insight, with activation of memory of past events and an ability to resolve old issues.
I have found that since I have been using it memories have been coming to my attention especially ones triggered by scent. At the top of the spine, at the base of the skull there is an emotional release point which acts as a filter for the nervous system and spine. By applying Fragonia to this reflex point the nervous system will relax, allowing feelings, emotions and thoughts to be processed differently. Brisk friction along the spine is also an important aspect of this release, strengthening the neural pathways. This aspect can be challenging to accomplish on your own unless you are really flexible but give it a go.

With summer and sunshine upon us I have created a Fun in the Sun Skincare lotion and spray. I have never been a huge fan of suntan lotions and either am careful about my sun exposure or apply products that rejuvenate and nourish my skin, especially after being in the sun for an extended period of time. Both products are designed to heal and soothe inflamed sun-damaged skin. Ingredients such as lavender, tumeric, aloe vera and calendula help regenerate our cells and repair sun damage. Sea Buckthorn and green tea supply the skin with anti-oxidants that protect and nourish your cells.
