About Agarwood Incense
Called the "Wish-Fulfilling Gem" in Tibetan and Ayurvedic medicine, this ancient, renowned, and sacred incense is deeply meditative, tranquilizing, and mood uplifting. Comes in 10-gram cloth bags.
Under certain conditions agarwood trees (Aquilaria agallocha) produce an aromatic resin. The resinous aromatic wood are highly regarded as a traditional medicine and incense ingredient, while the distilled oil is valued as an exotic perfume ingredient.
The oil and incense are thought to possess magical powers of attracting love, prosperity, and good fortune; they are euphorically relaxing in a way that enhances meditation and mental clarity.
The demand for high-quality agarwood has led to unregulated plundering of the trees from most of the forest areas of mountainous tropical Southeast Asia, and the tree is now considered endangered.
Floracopeia supports a small reforestation and distillation project in Assam, India, historically considered to be the source of the best wood and oil. The family we purchase from has been replanting the trees in groves on private properties for about thirty years, and is now harvesting and distilling small amounts of superb oil.
We are pleased to support this important project, which has started to bring increased economic prosperity to the region, along with education about preserving this unique and important species from uncontrolled poaching. We are especially grateful to the members of this family for their courage and dedication to this cause; as is often the case with endangered species, they have been subjected to harassment by the eco-mafias that have operated in the area for years.
Our electric incense burner provides an easy, convenient way to burn this type of incense. Watch:
