What is agarwood?
Agarwood was born from wounds on Do Bau tree. Over many years, it has counteracted the rigorous climate to survive and create a rare material. However, just a few Do Bau trees produce Agarwood. Approximately 1000 Do Bau trees make 1 agarwood. Therefore, agarwood is not only a precious but also valuable material.
Do Bau tree has its own specific natural aroma attracting insects, fungi, etc. Time goes by, the wound on the Do Bau tree has secreted a self-defense resin around the wound. Generally, on the tree trunk, there will be wounds cause by the insects, called the eyes trunk. The resin, which has been released for a while, absorbed into each wood fiber. After that, it spreads scent attracting the special ant which very few people know about. This species accidentally put fungus into the resin on truck. Gradually, it forms agarwood.
It took Do Bau trees ten years or even hundreds of years to create agarwood. Essential oil from the wounds of this tree gradually absorbs into fiber. This oil is accumulated to create agarwood which is more precious than gold. The more essential oil, the darker grain in wood. The heavier the wood is, the more useful it is.

Even when it is made into a feng shui item, agarwood still retains its own aroma, retains forever. The nearer this material is to the heat, the more scent is created. The scent which is spread, becomes stronger by the year of use. In spite of expensive agarwood, customers always search and sought it.
