Agarwood, also known as Oud, Oodh or Agar, is a dark resinous heartwood that forms in Aquilaria and Gyrinops trees
when they become infected with a type of mould.
Prior to infection, the
heartwood is relatively light and pale coloured, however, as the
infection progresses, the tree produces a dark aromatic resin in
response to the attack, which results in a very dense, dark, resin
embedded heartwood. This tree grows in southeast Asia, Vietnam, Pakistan, Bangladesh.
Method of Extraction: There are at least 3 common methods to extract oil from Agarwood (Hydro Distillation, Steam Distillation, Supercritical CO2 Extraction). In hydro distillation and steam distillation process comes Agarwood Hydrosol.
