At Edens Garden, we’ve recently launched so many new and wonderful oils. Some, you may already be familiar with, such as Rose Otto, Fine Lavender and Steam Distilled Lemon. Others, you may not be so familiar with, such as Fragonia.
If you’re feeling out of the loop when it comes to Fragonia, it may be because it’s a relatively new-to-aromatherapy essential oil. Though new, Fragonia is taking the industry by storm with its many therapeutic benefits and powerful aroma.
So just what can this aromatic essential oil do for you? Let’s unpack this.
The Chemistry of Fragonia
Fragonia contains three primary components: 1,8- cineole, alpha-pinene and linalool. Taking a look at the therapeutic benefits of these components can help us understand just what makes Fragonia tick.
One of the most beneficial components for aiding respiratory conditions, 1,8- cineole is the primary component of Eucalyptus oil. This component is what gives Eucalyptus its well-recognized, cool, medicinal aroma and it’s what characterizes Fragonia’s medicinal undertones. It also lends these potent properties to Fragonia:
1,8- cineole’s anti-inflammatory, mucolytic and anti-bacterial properties makes Fragonia essential oil worthy of any well-stocked medicine cabinet.
Not just a component known for supporting the respiratory system, 1,8- cineole in Rosemary essential oil has also been shown to boost memory and focus.
You could say that 1,8- cineole is part of what makes Fragonia unforgettable.
Fragonia is also rich in a-pinene, a component known to alleviate stress, reduce pain and soothe inflammation. This component is commonly found in oils such as Frankincense and Pine. Its aroma is green, terpenic and forest-like. In Fragonia, a-pinene offers the following:
One study measuring the effects of plant-derived odors on test subjects found that the aroma of α-pinene enhanced REM sleep.
A separate study analyzed the anti-inflammatory potential of α-pinene and found that it helped to prevent and reduce inflammation associated with osteoarthritis.
A review of the analgesic activity of monoterpenes revealed multiple studies that showed α-pinene reduced pain.
Last but not least, Fragonia containsa significant amount of linalool. This skin-loving component is largely found in oils such as Neroli, Lavender, Bergamot Mint and Basil. Its aroma is sweet, gently floral and delightful. Beyond its wonderful aroma and skincare benefits, studies show just how beneficial is:
A lab in Italy tested the inflammation-fighting potential of linalool, and found it to be anti-inflammatory.
Lavender oil was tested for its anaesthetic value and found to be uniquely pain-relieving thanks to its high linalool content.
Inhalation of linalool was found to decrease anxiety and stress in a study performed at a University in Brazil.
Benefits of Fragonia Essential Oil
Together, these components are what make Fragonia essential oil supremely beneficial towards aiding respiratory conditions, promoting focus, enhancing sleep, soothing pain and inflammation and reducing stress.
In other words, Fragonia is incredibly versatile and a wonderful addition to your essential oil collection, especially if you’re looking for essential oils that work powerfully.
