We feel so fortunate to offer this precious, organically crafted essential oil as it is one of the more difficult oils to procure. The cost of the raw material used to make this oil is 10-15 times more expensive than the raw material used to make jasmine absolute. As this oil ages, the aroma deepens.
(Note: if you want to try this essential oil without spending a fortune, we also offer a 10% dilution in jojoba oil.)
Organically crafted agarwood essential oil is steam distilled from a dark resinous heartwood found in two species of large evergreen trees, Aquilaria and Gyrinops, typically found in Asian countries. The heartwood used to make this essential oil is formed when the tree is attacked by a certain fungus, ascomycetous mold. The wood, normally pale in color and with an almost odorless smell, produces a dark, aromatic oleoresin in response to the attack of the mold. This resin works to rid the heartwood of the fungus, and in doing so turns the wood a dark, rich, beautiful color. Inevitably the tree dies. This natural cycle is what creates the beautiful, complex aromatic profile of agarwood that is so highly coveted around the world.
Agarwood essential oil has a myriad of therapeutic applications (some are mentioned below); this oil is used by aromatherapists to help relieve:
Agarwood essential oil also has exceptional emotional and energetic qualities, such as:
Agarwood is a highly sought after commodity as it used globally in incense and perfume making. Unfortunately sustainability of the Aquilaria and Gyrinops species is at risk, as poachers often go into the forest and scrape off the bark of these trees in order to purposefully infect heartwood with the fungus and illegally harvest the resulting agarwood.
In order to provide a pure, ethically crafted agarwood essential oil, we have partnered with a producer who not only prioritizes making a beautiful, organically crafted product, but who ensures that the raw material cultivated for distillation is ethically and sustainably harvested.
