Agarwood Oil

The agarwood oil is extracted from the agarwood through distillation process. This delicate process determines both the amount and quality of oil produced. With the exception of large solid pieces of agarwood which are traded as individual pieces, most of the wood is ground into very small pieces or powder, which are immersed in water and left to ferment over time. Then the material is transferred to distillation kettles and steamed. After heating, the condensed water and oil are captured in a container where the oil floats on top of the water. The water is removed and the oil is tapped. The powder which remains after distillation can be used for low grade incense making. It is estimated that for the production of one litre of oil 100 to 150 kilos of agarwood is necessary. To test agarwood oil quality, the only way is using Gas Chromatography-Mass Spectrometry (GC-MS).

Secrets On How To Use Essential Oil

Sinking Agarwood

The benefits of essential oils may be experienced in a number of ways:

During a massage

Add 3 drops of essential oil to every 6ml of massage base oil or moisturising lotion. Different oils may be combined, but keep within the total quantities given above. Do not apply undiluted essential oils directly to the skin.

While having a bath

Add 3 to 6 drops of essential oil to your bath water. Allow time for the oil to penetrate your skin, while you breathe the beneficial vapours. Note: in the case of children, halve the adult amount of oil used. For babies, use a single drop.

Vaporising

Add a few drops of essential oil to the water in the bowl of an oil burner. As the water heats up, the oil will vapourise and its perfume will permeate the room.

Room Sprays

To make room spray, blend ten drops of essential oil in seven tablespoons of water. One tablespoon of vodka or pure alcohol added to the solution will act as a preservative but this is optional. Shake well before filling the sprayer.

Sleep Quality

Perfume your pillow with 2-3 drops of Sandalwood oil for insomnia and sleep related problems. It will help to reduce anxiety, stress, tensions, nervousness etc.
