Meditations Agarwood Incense
Pure, handmade incense courtesy of sister-store Meditations. Agarwood incense is unadulterated bliss to burn. Each cylinder contains 40 sticks.
It is formed in the heartwood of aquilaria trees when they become infected with a type of mold (Phialophora parasitica). Prior to infection, the heartwood is odourless, relatively light and pale coloured; however, as the infection progresses, the tree produces a dark aromatic resin, called aloes, or agar, as well as gaharu, jinko, oud, or oodh aguru (not to be confused with bukhoor), in response to the attack, which results in a very dense, dark, resin-embedded heartwood.
