Newly sourced from Vietnam, a premium quality rare Agarwood oil produced by CO2 supercritical (Select) extraction. We are very pleased to make this rare oil available for aromatherapy, perfume blending and spiritual use.

Whether making perfume, incense, anointing or spiritual blends Agarwood (Oud) imparts a mysterious, luxurious, unique aroma.  Our Agarwood has a  precious character that adds a missing level of opulence to fine perfume accords.

Also known also as Oud, Aloeswood, Agar, Oudh, and Oodh, premium Agarwood oil is the result of the aquilaria tree becoming infected with a type of mold. In normal growth, the heartwood of the aquilaria tree is relatively light, pale colored and barely aromatic; but once the infection invades the heartwood and progresses, the tree produces a dark aromatic resin in a defensive response to the parasitical mold attack. The result of the naturally occurring defensive mechanism culminates with the heartwood becoming very dense, dark, and resin embedded. The parasitical infection and subsequent decomposition is a very slow process that can take several hundred years in natural habitat.

Pure Agarwood oil from wild harvest is extremely rare and quite expensive. Mass indiscriminate tree harvesting for precious Agarwood oil production, particularly over the past thirty years, severely depleted natural resources. The demand for high quality Agarwood by fine perfumeries and the negligence in replanting resulted in premium quality wildcrafted Agarwood oil becoming rare. Ecologically sound practices have been established by plantations to replant, allowing trees to grow to maturity, but as you can imagine this is also a slow and arduous task.

One must be cautious when purchasing Agarwood oil due to the demand placed upon it that brought about inferior oil production cultivated from lighter colored wood of the aquilaria tree in unscrupulous attempts to meet demand. True Agarwood produced from wildcrafted dark, resin embedded aquilaria heartwood is currently a treasured find with most Asian and SE Asian countries placing severe restrictions on harvest and export. 

Aromatherapy use: Stimulant, tonic, aphrodisiac, diuretic, antimicrobial, carminative (flatulence), febrifuge (lowers fever), digestive and bronchial

Spiritual use: Provides motivation and devotion to meditation. Facilitates communication with the transcendent. Removes impurities. Expels negative energies. Creates natural order in your sacred living areas. Opens the crown chakra and the pineal. Helps the natural flow of Qi.

Contraindications: None known.
