Nam An Agarwood
What is Agarwood?
Agarwood tree (Aquilaria malaccensis) is a species of plant in the Agarwood family. This species is found in Bangladesh, Bhutan, India, Indonesia, Iran, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam.
Agarwood is the part of the tree that is contaminated with oil. Some species, in the process of growth, due to certain effects, cause “injury/infection”, over time the tree accumulates a resinous substance called agarwood oil, then gradually spreads, causing modifying wood molecules, creating many colors (black, brown, indigo, gray, …),
many properties (hard, soft, flexible, brittle …), many flavors (bitter, spicy, sour, sweet, …), many shapes (round, twisted, pointed, long, …), in many parts (stem, branches, roots) of the tree. That is agarwood, the international traded name: Agarwood.
The outstanding feature of frankincense is that it emits a special aroma when burned or even not yet burned. When the oil is more concentrated, the frankincense can sink in water. High-grade frankincense can reach 60-80% oil content. Based on the degree of oil contamination, color, flavor, shape, weight, origin … that makes agarwood come with different names.
