About Wild Agonis Essential Oil
Wild Agonis oil is a pleasing, versatile oil that offers a clear path toward physical and emotional balance. Though primarily medicinal, this oil has a gentle sweetness that most other clarifying oils lack. Think of Wild Agonis as tea tree oil wearing perfume. It benefits our natural rhythms: sleep, circadian, hormone cycles, and even helps ease traveling stress.
Wild Agonis relieves bodies and joints sore from vigorous activity and aging. Like its relative tea tree, it has a lovely clearing, cooling effect on the skin. Its soothing camphoraceous nature will be perfect in a chest steam to keep the lungs clear during periods of congestion and wintertime troubles.
While sharing many of the same topical benefits of the medicinal tea tree, Wild Agonis goes further with a deep effect on consciousness. It will brighten your outlook, ease the stress of transitional times, and dispel habits and blockages. When diffused, it is a powerful oil for balancing emotions and clearing the atmosphere. It acts as a cross between tea tree and lavender, and its aromatic profile reflects this in a lovely blend of clarifying freshness and comforting softness.
Wild Agonis Oil Profile
This is the wild version of fragonia. It is wild harvested from the coastal area of Western Australia. It is a small shrub that turns snow white with fluffy blossoms, and the oil is steam distilled from the twigs and leaves. The plant is cut down to ground level for distilling, and in a few years Wild Agonis will rigorously sprout back to be harvested again.
Upon a blind smelling of Wild Agonis you may wonder, “why does this tea tree smell so pretty?”....It has many similar notes to the tea tree: pure, alert, and camphoraceous. Pleasingly layered in are notes of spicy, herbaceous floral and a less noticeable hint of sunshine citrus.
How to Use Wild Agonis Essential Oil
Wild Agonis has a wide variety of uses, and can be thought of as a mental and physical cure-all. It’s perfect in a steam or bath, massaged into troubled or upset areas, as cooling and clearing skincare, diffused for freshness, and for balancing the moon cycle.
To use as a chest steam, add 1-5 drops into a pot of hot water, cover your head with a towel, and breathe deeply for a few minutes. Use during winter months or anytime a deep and clear breath is desired.
