About Fragonia Essential Oil
Fragonia is a powerhouse oil and is unsurpassed when used for supporting respiratory health, whether due to seasonal pollen concerns or respiratory “yuckies” that get passed from person to person in wintertime. Fragonia can also be helpful in soothing chapped, red areas on the body and as a spot treatment for teenage or hormonal skin.
Further, it’s a wonderful aid for the discomforts that accompany over-extertion at the gym or the normal wear and tear felt by those with aging joints. Dr. Daniel Penoel, longtime aromatherapy expert had praised Fragonia for its ability to help promote deep relaxation before sleep.
An interesting fact about Fragonia is that it contains almost equal parts of three components families: monoterpenes, oxides, and monoterpenols. This is rarely seen with other essential oils, and accounts for its wide-ranging applications for use
