Fragonia Adonis fragrans

Starting at: $0.22

Botanical Name: Adonis fragrans
Plant Part: Leaves and Twigs
Extraction Method: Steam
Origin: Australia

A unique, newly released West Australian oil exclusively grown and distilled by The Paperbark Co.
The oil is harvested and steam distilled from Agonis fragrans, a small shrub to 2.4m. It is found on the south coast of Western Australia. Recognised as 'coarse tea-tree' by the cut flower industry, it has only recently been given its common name, which reflects the fragrant nature of both the foliage and the extracted oil.
The Paperbark Co. is working closely with Dr Daniel Penoel to determine the clinical applications of this oil. International trials are underway, and data will be posted to this website as it becomes available.
The name Fragonia(TM) has been trademarked by The Paperbark Co., and all oil sold under this name conforms with the exacting constituents specification for the particular chemotype of Agonis fragrans selected and grown by The Paperbark Co.
Preliminary work on Fragonia(TM) oil indicates it has significant anti-microbial activity. Primary constituents of the oil are 1.8 cineole, alpha-pinene & linalool. It is an extremely balanced oil, with the oxides (cineole), monoterpenes (alpha-pinene) and monoterpenols (linalol and others) in near perfect 1:1:1 ratio.
The odour is described as "a pleasant fresh cineolic odour with a hint of a citrus note (which becomes more pronounced after a few minutes)mixed with a slight spicy cinnamon tonality and sweet balsamic undertones. The dry down is very faint being sweet, soapy and woody balsamic." (copyright Tony Burfield 2004).

GCMS analysis is available. 

Fragonia has similar properties to Australian Tea Tree, Manuka & Kanuka essential oils, and has a soft fragrant scent that I think is closer to Kanuka as it doesn't have the sharpness of Tea Tree or Manuka.  Like these oils, it also has antifungal properties and is safe enough to use with children and babies.
