Al Misik: Cambodian AgarWood OilRM399.00Add to cart
Cambodian AgarWood Oil. Agarwood (Kayu Gaharu) is a fragrant wood that is one of the most expensive raw materials in the world.
The Aquilaria malaccensis is a tree native to the rainforests of southeast Asia. When healthy, the heartwood inside these trees are pale, odorless, and worthless. In the wild rainforests though, the tree bark may be damaged by external forces, such as grazing animals and under perfect conditions, a type of fungus called Phialophora parasitica grows and infects the inside of the tree.
In defense, the tree produces a stress-induced aromatic resin called aloes, which is dark and moist and over years, the aloes slowly embed into the heartwood to create agarwood.
It can also be caused by ants burrowing into the tree trunk, wounding it and bringing microorganisms, bacteria and fungual spores into it. The ant secretes a liquid that damages the tree and the tree uses its own sap to seal the wound. It time, this sealed wound turns into agarwood.
It takes an expert to know whether the Aquilaria has been infected and has agarwood (gaharu) inside. Then it takes hours of painstaking effort to carve the resin-infused agarwood chips from the healthy trunk. These trees are now a rare find hence its exhorbitant price. The agarwood chips can be distilled into fragrant essential oils.
