Oud oil is known for bringing relaxation of the mind, warm the heart & calm the mind, it is a truly uplifting experience and open an avenue of peace and contentment.
What is oud/agarwood oil?
The oil extracted from resinous heartwood that forms in Aquilaria trees (large evergreens native to Southeast Asia) when they become infected with a type of mold. The tree is attacked by fungus. Prior to infection, the heartwood is relatively light and pale coloured, however as the infection progresses, the tree produces a dark aromatic resin in response to the attack, which results in a very dense, dark, resin embedded heartwood. The resin embedded wood is commonly called gaharu, jinko, aloeswood, agarwood, or oud and is valued in many cultures for its distinctive fragrance, and thus is used for incense and perfumes.
