Our organically crafted agarwood essential oil is sustainably produced from the heartwood of two species of evergreen trees that grow in a wild, private tropical forest plantation in Thailand. This essential oil is on our sustainability watch list, and we are incredibly fortunate to work with a distiller who is passionate about taking every measure to ensure that their agarwood essential oil is sustainably and ethically produced in accordance with local government requirements. We cherish agarwood essential oil and use it sparingly to help promote balance and peace for the mind, body, and spirit.
Our plantation wildcrafted agarwood essential oil is steam distilled from the dark, resinous heartwood of two species of large evergreen trees, Aquilaria and Gyrinops. The wood, usually pale in color and with an almost odorless smell, produces a dark, aromatic oleoresin in response to mold. The resin works to rid the heartwood of the fungus, and in doing so turns the wood a dark, vibrant, beautiful color. Inevitably the tree dies, and our distiller replants. This natural cycle is what creates the elegant, sophisticated aromatic profile of agarwood that is so highly coveted around the world.
The dark, aromatic heartwood of the Aquilaria and Gyrinops trees create a sweet, smoky, resinous, sensual, radiant, woodsy essential oil. Along with promoting balance and calm, agarwood oil helps ease muscle spasms, supports healthy digestion, reduces unwelcome microbial activity, and helps eliminate excess water retention. Agarwood essential oil is often used to help manage situational anxiety and depression. Using agarwood essential oil in blends as an aphrodisiac adds depth and complexity.
Emotionally and energetically, agarwood essential oil strengthens and inspires. This essential oil can help remove harmful energy, encourage mental clarity, and support greater personal awareness.
