Agarwood (also called Aloeswood or Oud) is prized as a spiritual wood and has been used in Buddhist meditation for centuries. Many believe Agarwood contains the positive life energy (Feng Shui) of growth, expansion, new beginnings, nourishment and health. Agarwood bracelets and necklaces are carried or worn to manifest positive energy and good fortune.
Agarwood is naturally formed within the forests of Southeast Asia when the Agar tree develops resins as a natural defence against infection. Over an extensive period of time (up to 100 years), the resin saturates the wood, resulting in a rare, dark, beautiful heartwood.
