Clean Fresh Agarwood Chips.
Botanical Name: Aquilaria Agallocha
Agaru is also known as Oud, Aloeswood, Eaglewood and Gharuwood.
Aquilaria is an evergreen tree native to Indonesia, India, Laos, Malaysia, Vietnam and Cambodia. Agarwood is the resinous wood from that tree.
Agarwood is a fragrant, dark resinous wood used in incense, perfume, and small carvings. It is formed in the heartwood of aquilaria trees when they become infected with a type of mold. The tree produces resin in response to the infection, which results in a very dense, dark, and aromatic wood. Agarwood is highly valued in many cultures for its distinctive fragrance and is used for various ceremonial purposes, especially in the Middle East and Asia. Its rarity and the unique process of its formation contribute to its high cost.
Agarwood is also used in herbal medicine, particularly in traditional systems of medicine in various Asian countries. In traditional Chinese medicine, it is known as “Chen Xiang” and is used to treat digestive issues and relieve pain. In Ayurveda, an Indian system of medicine, agarwood is believed to have various health benefits, including improving mental clarity, aiding in digestion, and treating various respiratory conditions. It is also considered to have detoxifying properties and is used in the treatment of certain skin diseases. More scientific study and research is needed to fully verify the effectiveness of oud.
