Pure Aloeswood from Vietnam, Cambodia and Indonesia. (a.k.a. Agarwood, Oud) We also offer the most sought after Aloeswood of all, Kyara.
Aloeswood is known as "Jinko" in Japan, which translates as "sinking incense" or "incense that sinks in water," due to the weight of the resin in the wood.
Aloeswood comes from the heartwood and roots of the evergreen tree Aquilaria agallocha. Some trees become infected by a fungus and as an immune response, the tree produces a resin to ward off the fungus. It's this precious resin that has been revered for thousands of years by many cultures as the most treasured incense ingredient on Earth! Our woods are selected by the masters at Baieido Incense Co. of Japan, traders in Aloeswood and makers of premium natural incense since 1657.
