WHAT IS AGARWOOD

WHAT IS AGARWOOD

Agarwood as it is known in many Asian countries is a resinous heartwood that occurs in trees belonging to the genus Aquilaria. The Aquilaria tree is a fast-growing, subtropical forest tree, with a population range stretching from South Asia’s Himalayan foothills, throughout Southeast Asia, and into the rainforests of Papua New Guinea. It grows at elevations from a few meters above sea level to about 1000 meters, with approx 500 meters being most ideal.

Aquilaria can grow on a wide range of soils, including poor sandy soil. Seedlings require a great deal of shade and water but will grow rapidly, producing flowers and seeds as early as four years old. At least fifteen species of Aquilaria are known to produce the much sought-after agarwood. In South Asia, particularly India, Aquilaria achalloga is found. Aquilaria malaccensis is mostly known in Thailand, Malaysia and Indonesia, Campuchia and Vietnam while Aquilaria crassna grows primarily in Indochina. A number of others are also known, such as Aquilaria grandifolia, Aquilaria chinensis etc., though these are relatively minor species for agarwood production.

1.Agarwood Usage

Agarwood, the “Wood of the Gods” has been traded and highly coveted for thousands of years. The resinous wood is used as incense, for medicinal purposes, and pure resin in distilled form is used as an essential oil as well as a perfume component. Outside its native countries, it is most widely known in the Middle East, China, Taiwan, and Japan. A strong connection exists between use, religion, and curative properties, and elaborate traditional and religious ceremonies are known around the world. Faith healers in the Middle East use it at curative ceremonies, Japanese pilgrims donate flowers and agarwood oil to Shinto-Buddhist temples, and Vietnamese religious groups are obliged to bring agarwood to ceremonies at their temples in Mekong Delta communities.

2.Agarwood Essential Oil – Oud Oil

Oud Oil is one of the best-known and best-loved fragrance ingredients among consumers across the globe. Its rich scent and exotic associations have made it synonymous with oriental fragrances for centuries. But how many of us can say we are familiar with the process involved in obtaining oud, or how best to use it in fragrance creation?

Most Agarwood oud oil is purchased and consumed primarily by France, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, UAE, Middle East, Taiwan, China and Japan. There are no truly similar species or known synthetics that come close to the real scent. The fungal infection that helps create the resin makes its extract very unique.

3.Agarwood Extinction

Resin-producing agarwood trees are endangered throughout their known habitat all across Southeast Asia. The main driving force, which initiated this project, was the recognition of unsustainable Aquilaria harvesting in natural forests that resulted in the near extinction of this tree genus in Thailand, Vietnam and elsewhere. Aquilaria crassna is now a protected species in Vietnam. Trade and harvesting restrictions will be virtually impossible to implement and enforce if no alternative is developed to forest-based harvesting. In addition, both in the short and long-term, a natural resource base needs to be maintained to supply present and future Aquilaria plantations with genetic source material in order to prevent plant disease, maintain diversity, and possibly improve resin production. However, in Vietnam, soil and climate conditions have helped agarwood trees grow and produce oil with an attractive aroma. Binh Nghia has researched the methods of growing natural agarwood and artificial agarwood products to meet a large output for the market of agarwood lovers.
