    What is Agarwood (Oud) Hydrosol  

    Firstly, hydrosol = water solution remains after plants material are steam-distilled or water distilled to release their essential oils. In this case, the plant material is: infected Aquilaria wood known as agarwood.

    How was it made?

    The above picture is a small apparatus (pot still) for agarwood (Oud) steam distillation.

    Pulverised agarwood (grind agarwood chips) was placed in the inner chamber which will be steamed.

    After hours or days (not joking, even weeks for curing), you will see a small layer of Oud (yellowish to golden) per below 

    Yummy colour, like BEER! YEAHHHHHHHHH

     

    How can I use it?

    The strength and intensity of Agarwood Hydrosol is no matched with the essential oil. My guess is 1/100. However, it has its advantage:

    • The price of Agarwood Hydrosol 1/100 compared to 100% Pure Agarwood (Oud) Oil
    • Mainly floral and woody notes, easy to smell, and blend with others scent

    Use with an oil diffuser

    Cold steam diffuser, extremely pleasant and great saving, for 20ml of 100% Agarwood (Oud) Hydrosol, you will enjoy it for hours

    In addition, Agarwood Hydrosol is an excellent product for someone who has not tried Oud before. If you were an Oud addict, you would know that he/she might feel offended or shocked when Oud is tried the first time. "Smell like animal urine" "smell like sh!t" , "off-smell", "something rotten"   were often heard. 

    Agarwood Hydrosol can be blended to make water-based perfume, cologne or room spray. It is easy to work with compared to 100% pure Agarwood (Oud) oil.

    Not every distiller offer this product because of costly transport which is more expensive than the hydrosol itself.  Only local distillers sell it and offer it to the local market mainly.

    We will have some 100% Pure Agarwood Hydrosol in the next 2 weeks. If you are interested, please sign up for the newsletter :)

    YES, IT IS AN AUSTRALIAN MADE PRODUCT, LOCALLY, WITHIN AUSTRALIA.
