Agarwood and Aloeswood

Agarwood is a rare and valuable wood that is formed in the heartwood of Aquilaria trees when they are infected by a fungus. The fungus causes the tree to produce a resin that gives agarwood its characteristic aroma. Agarwood has been used for centuries for its fragrance, medicinal properties, and spiritual significance.

The earliest recorded use of agarwood is in the Vedas of ancient India, which date back to around 1500-1000 BCE. In the Vedas, agarwood is mentioned as a fragrant offering to the gods and as a perfume to be used by the nobility. It was also used in traditional Indian medicine to treat a variety of ailments, including stomach problems, dysentery, and respiratory infections.

Agarwood is also revered in other cultures and religions. In China, it is known as oud and is used in incense and traditional Chinese medicine. In the Middle East, it is used in perfumery and religious ceremonies.

Today, agarwood is still highly prized for its fragrance and medicinal properties. It is used in a variety of products, including perfumes, colognes, incense, and traditional medicines. Agarwood is also used to make luxury goods, such as jewelry and carvings.
