The tropical tree aquilaria belongs to the Thymelaeceae family, which includes about forty species distributed mainly in Southeast Asia. It has a slender appearance, a clear bark and leaves of an intense bright green; it can easily exceed five meters in height.
Aquilaria is the origin of agar wood, as well as sought-after species and other rare and precious products. A characteristic that he shares with a nearby genus, The Gyrinops, with nine species also distributed in Southeast Asia.
These trees have been known for millennia for the virtues of their black, resinous and fragrant wood. It is one of the most valuable woods in the world
Agar wood is also known as Eaglewood, oud, Aloeswood, Gaharu in Indonesia, Jinkoh or Kanankoh in Japan. It is used by the peoples of Southeast Asia and the Middle East for its fragrant properties - its fragrance is woody, powerful, musky - and medicinal.
It is used as incense in certain religious rituals, notably in Korea or Hinduism. It also served as a medium to preserve certain texts: this is the case of pormuniyan, a Javanese medical-magic collection, kept in the National Library of France. It is also used as essential oil, extracted from wood after a complex maceration and distillation process.
Buddha Vairocana is the protector of people born under the sign of the goat and the monkey.
