    What trees required damages to grow?

    Thank you for your response. It is Aquilaria Crassna, a plantation product. We have been growing for decades.
  4. Would you like to know which trees requiring damages to grow to become more valuable? Trees should be loved, hugged and protected. Trees should be planted healthily. In general, the healthier the trees, the more valuable they become What if we told you that there was one exception to the rule, one species which required the exact opposite to be valuable. We love the damages done to it. We love to wound it, to injure it, to make it painful. We encourage insects to attack it, we drill multiple holes in the tree. In short, we try to wound it so it defends itself. During this healing process, an amazing thing happens, a precious substance was formed by the tree to fight against the attacks, and diseases, this substance is known as agarwood only created by wounded Aquilaria tree. The story is a metaphor for our life. We experience toughness in our lives. If we gave up, we lost the fight. However, just like this Aquilaria tree, we stay strong and fight back despite the odds being stacked against us. Not only we survive, but also we thrive. We create our own “Agarwood” in our lives. When it is healthy, when there are no pains, no wounds, no injuries, Aquilaria is worthless, like firewood In adverse conditions, it thrives and survives. It develops agarwood, known as Wood of God mentioned in the Bible, Quran, and Buddhist Scriptures. Be extraordinary, be unusual and unique, be strong like agarwood, you will grow and live a better life.

    Agarwood Hydrosol

    Hi Gimli The yield is very small. On average, commercial distiller, 1000 kg of agarwood will give you 1 litre of oil. However, the yield could be double with heavily infected wood.

  9. Agarwood incense. No perfume oil blended, no sharp or bitter burn note like the $3 in the market, not just 10 minutes of burn but 30 minutes per stick (70 sticks circa in a tube). Agarwood incenses were made with 100% agarwood powder grinded from resinous wood chip with makko powder as natural adhesive and left for "natural fermented" for 6 months. The scent is very quite distinctive, and unique. The scent from the Wood Of God https://www.grandawood.com.au/collections/incense

  15. Cut the log scrap away the white wood We will have wood chip for sales or grind them to make incense or oil distillation white wood scrapped off, leaving beautiful resinous chip. To obtain these chips, it takes circa 10 years, 8 years for the tree to grow and 2 years for the infection spread out. Oil distillation: we use white wood which we scrapped off during the chipping process to fuel as otherwise too much unused wood would accumulate. For wild oud, in the forest, hunters will collect and pass on to us or other distributors, mainly for chips and logs for making beads (jewelry), decor, the below are highly sought after, mainly China, Japan and Middle East Countries. For example like this: This is from Jember Province Indonesia Brunei Sir Lanka What is decor for? Well sometimes for Feng Shui or simply life style http://www.grandawood.com.au/blogs/news/48795331-fortune-prosperity-longevity-natural-agarwood-display-evergreen-forest In Australia, the concept of feng shui is not popular, but "scent" which is evocative. Hence, the oil, incense and wood chips were introduced. If you wish to learn more about agarwood, please go to kyarazen.com, an excellent resource from an incense artisan who has affiliate with no one. He is driven to make incense and obsess with tea and fragrant wood.
