Chinese knots have been a traditional art form since the Tang and Song dynasty (960 AD) in China. Chinese knots symbolize ‘good wishes’ and represent happiness, prosperity, love and the absence of evil.
Agarwood (also called Aloeswood or Oud) is a spiritual wood used extensively in Buddhist tradition and meditation. 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 dark, beautiful heartwood.
Agarwood is treasured as a spiritual and healing wood. Many believe Agarwood contains the positive life energy (Qi) of growth, expansion, new beginnings, nourishment and health. Agarwood bracelets and necklaces are carried or worn to manifest positive energy and good fortune.
