Agarwood, well sought after especially in Asia and Middle East and far across European countries, known in the essential oil industry as oud, oodh or agar, is a dark resinous wood that is formed in Aquilaria trees when they are infected with a type of mould. Non infected wood is odourless, light and pale in colour. When the infection progresses, the tree will produce a dark aromatic resin in response to the infection forming a very dense, dark, resin embedded heartwood. The resin embedded wood is commonly known as gaharu (in Indonesia, Malaysia), jinko (in Japan), aloeswood, agarwood or oud in the other countries including the Middle East and is valued in many cultures for its distinctive fragrance, and major religions as offerings and perfumes. Agarwood is thus given its other name, the ” Wood of God “.
One of the main reasons for the relative rarity and high cost of Agarwood is the depletion of the wild resource. First-grade Agarwood is one of the most expensive natural raw materials in the world.
Agarwood extracted from the infected Aquilaria trees in its form can be produced into many variations of by-products. One of the most valuable is its natural formation into Mother Nature’s masterpieces of artefacts. Some of the well -established Agarwood are sought after by sculptors to create their various expressions in different forms of religious figurines.
