Chinese medicine has used Agarwood as a natural sedative, aphrodisiac, digestive aid, and pain reliever. Rich in antioxidants and anti-inflammatory agents, agarwood oil reduces joint pain, treats acne and other skin irritations, and even fights breast cancer.
Oud oil comes from the forests of Southeast Asian Agar Tree. When this wood becomes infected with a particular type of mold, the tree reacts by producing a dark, scented resin, which is popularly called liquid gold. The reason why Oud is so expensive is because of its rarity. Less than 2% of wild agar trees produce it.
Allow Agarwood jewelry items to come in contact with your skin as much as possible. Like Amber, oil from Agarwood may benefit you as your body heats it up.
