The wood deemed Aloes, also called Agar, comes from a tree that grows in Southeast Asia. The wood itself is of no interest to incense except when infected by a parasitic fungus. The tree then produces a dense black resin in the heart of the tree to protect itself.

This softwood, rare and precious wood, which was spoken of in the Bible, has been used in China and Vietnam, Tibet and, especially, in Japan. The Japanese have a ritual called Kodo for 'tasting' the rich and subtle aromas of Aloes wood.

Called "The wood of the Gods", softwood superior aloe is one of the most expensive natural substances in the world. The wood of aloes is endangered, increasing scarcity and price.

The resin has a peculiar smell that is not found in anything else. Nothing is similar. Rich, woody, sweet, hot, spicy and elegant smell.

Aloes wood has long been used and surrounded by mystery. Herodotus relates that the Egyptians used it for embalming. In the Song of Songs is the original tree in the garden of Eden. Aloe wood would be the incense offered as a present to the Infant Jesus by the Three Kings. Buddha appointed it as the Nirvana smell but also as one of the three integral incenses with sandalwood and clove. In the Qur'an, the Prophet Muhammad considers its fragrant smoke in the middle of paradise, and it is also the favorite aroma of Krishna, an Indian deity.

Throughout history, agar wood has been adopted as an olfactory sign of divine manifestation. It was assigned it with the power to cleanse the body and mind.

Its oily form is commonly used. In the Arab world, its oil is used to perfume the skin. It is an essential raw material in the perfume of the Middle East. Very valuable, the oil develops a captivating aroma, incredibly refined both animal, crude and sophisticated. Agar wood is also considered a powerful aphrodisiac. In many cultures, women permeated their clothes as well as themselves of her perfume.

Used in medicine, agar wood is a remedy for nervous disorders such as neurosis, obsessive behavior, and exhaustion. It is highly psychoactive and allows a comparison with our spiritual side. Therefore, it is an incense for meditation par excellence, bringing energy to the center and calming the mind. It also has the ability to make us back to the difficult stages of our lives to face our fears.
