Fragonia is an amazing essential oil from Western Australia. In our Cleansing + Moisturising Oil we use the oil because it kills the fungus (Candida albicans) that causes yeast infection. So by using the cleanser it will help keeping your lady parts healthy and itch-free. Fragonia is also extremely mild and balancing. Below are some scientific facts about our no 1 favourite essential oil.
The therapeutic use of Fragonia:
1. Anti-microbial, anti-fungal and anti-viral
Fragonia has similar anti-microbial and anti-fungal properties as tea tree oil but with a much more pleasant smell.
Fragonia can be effective in stopping the cold in its tracks. And if you don’t manage to prevent the cold fully, continued use of Fragonia will speed up the cold’s progress and ameliorate the symptoms.
Fragonia has very good expectorant properties. While it is not as powerful and aggressive as Eucalyptus in this particular area, it is good enough to be very useful in a steam inhalation treatment for colds, flu, and other head and chest infections. Fragonia has distinct advantages over Eucalyptus in breaking up mucous, in that it:
• Attacks the infection causing the mucous formation
• Soothes the irritation and nervous reactions to the respiratory inflammation
• Strengthens and balances the immune system
• Is extremely gentle on the skin and is readily absorbed through it
• Has a pleasant fragrance
Research and clinical trials have shown Fragonia has very good anti-inflammatory properties.
4. Menstrual and female health problems
Fragonia has the ability to assist in regulating hormonal imbalances. Clinical research has shown that Fragonia can bring about a significant improvement relating to pain, depression, anxiety, breast tenderness and bloating in menstruating women, as well as a decrease in the duration of symptoms.
Fragonia can be used to assist in relieving joint and muscle pain through topical application. Added to a carrier oil, it can dissipate and drain lactic acid held in sore muscles and also soften fascia and ligaments.
6. Strengthens the immune system
Fragonia can be applied on a daily basis to the skin over the lymphatic nodes in the side of the neck, the armpits and groin to strengthen the immune system.
7. Jet lag and regulation of the body clock
Feedback from travellers and shift workers has shown that Fragonia has a very positive effect in preventing or minimising the symptoms of jet lag and to regulate their internal body clock.
8. Emotional balance
At an emotional level Fragonia helps relieve grief and sadness. It’s also very calming and balancing and brings harmony. Fragonia helps us let go of the past, heal buried emotional traumas, and weather the inner storms that rage within all of us.
