Benefits of Gaharu Oil

Agarwood has been referred to as “The Wood of the Gods” for thousands of years. First-grade agarwood can cost up to $100,000 per kilogram, making it one of the world’s most expensive raw materials. However, before this tree can produce agarwood, it must first become infected with mold.

An evergreen tree deep in the Far Eastern jungle is attacked by fungus-carrying insects that bore into the tree. In the same way that our immune systems produce white blood cells, the tree begins to produce a substance to combat the infection. The infection spreads over time, as does the substance produced by the tree. This is oud, also known as agarwood. Oud oil is extracted when it is distilled.

Agarwood stimulates appetite by influencing gastric juices and liver functions. It relieves abdominal distension and aids in the release of wind from the intestines. As a result, it reduces abdominal pain and cramps caused by excess gas in the alimentary canal.

In traditional East Asian medicine, agarwood is used to promote the flow of qi, relieve pain, stop vomiting by warming the stomach, and treat asthma. Malaysians make a liniment out of agarwood and coconut oil. Similarly, Indians and Chinese use agarwood oil as a liniment in their traditional medicine to treat a variety of skin diseases. Agarwood oil is also used to treat rheumatism and other types of pain in a boiled concoction. Malaysians treat jaundice and body pains with Kayu gaharu lemppong, which is made from discarded uninfected wood.
