A small Town in Mountain, Quang Ngai Province, there lives around 5000 people. Most of them are Co Ho, a minority ethnic.
The scenery here is breathtaking, and this area is still underdeveloped.
In this mountain town, cinnamon is the local specialty. When the weather is cold, people cut tiny pieces of cinnamon and hold these pieces into their mouths. This action creates a warm feeling for people. It makes people feel great.
Another specialty which not many people know is agarwood. Many people have been trying to grow them in this mountain town but fail. Many lost everything after 20 years because the Aquilaria trees die. Some trees did not form agarwood, no matters what the growers do. Most people have given up growing the Aquilaria trees.
Among them is a farmer L, who has been growing Aquialaria trees for many years, but there was no agarwood.
Just like other people, he was frustrated, angry and sad. He has been working for 12 years and got nothing out of it.
Days in, days out, he kept checking, and there was nothing but the low-value white wood.
He thought if he should get a bulldozer to bulldoze everything.
Disappointed, he slashed his axe to many trees. To his surprise, one of the trees has agarwood. He took a closer look and found there were many insects in the tree, especially ants.
He then drilled multiple holes in each tree, insert his “ant foods” to attract ants forming colonies in his trees. He has been monitoring his trees and his ant friends for years.
Finally, he cracked open many of his Aquilaria trees, and he found Agarwood. We named it A+
And my friend, A is for ants, and "+ plus" means quality.
Getting our hand on these chips are a challenge because Tra Bong is a remote town. The infrastructure is way underdeveloped.
However, the love of agarwood brought them to us, and we are pleased to make them available for you to experience one of a lifetime.
If you had special guests seeing you either for a chat or business matters, then you would like to burn these oud chips to enlighten their moods and yours.
They would love to stay longer to enjoy this holy aroma
Remember some days; there were some keynote speakers to talk about some specific topics for hours. Most of the time, good food will be provided, so attendees were so keen just because of the food.
Burning these chips will have the same effect. Believe me, when your guests, your audiences or clients smell this, they would not want to miss your class.
I got some clients who invested in these chips just for their spiritual cleansing and communicating to their Gods.
I also have a gentleman in his 70's who lived alone. He would heat these chips whenever he had a visitor or a small family gathering at his place. He told me that sharing good things will make the good times last and memorable.
On weekdays, when he was alone, he lit up the charcoal and placed these chips on top. The sweet vanillic smoke arose, he sat back on his couch. With the windows open, he looked out the garden and enjoyed his time every moment and the good old time.
Although this is wild agarwood, it comes from a sustainable source. Our partner, who also had a large piece of land in Tra Bong Quang Ngai, has been cultivating agarwood for decades too. Inside his estate, there are many wild Aquilaria trees that are decades old.

I have been enjoying this oud for the last week and its so uplifting that I give a bit away. Thank You...will be checking in soon!
This is the first time I've ordered from you guys and I'll definitely be back, these chips are resinous and have a great scent. Excellent value for money and your service is top notch.
Hi Trent, I only just found the time last night, to try some of the Agarwood chips that you kindly sent me with my order. I have to say I was a little unsure, my sense of smell is not that great as we have way too many cats and spend a lot of our time cleaning up after them. And when I got one of the chips out, I couldn't really smell anything. I made a bed of rice ash, placed a small charcoal block in it, heaped up the ash around it and placed a mica plate on top with just one Agarwood chip. It took me a while to get it right, I had read about burying the charcoal in the ash, but that seemed to smother it, so I left it exposed around the edges. The mica plate was about 6mm over the top of it. And I have to say WOW. Now I know what you are talking about. What a divine scent. I probably had it a bit hotter than needed, because it didn't take long before the whole room smelled of it. And if I lent over it and breathed in the vapours, words can't describe the feeling, it was like it went into my lungs and then straight to my heart. It gave me such an overwhelming feeling of, how can I describe it, like love and bliss. I am so glad I discovered your website when searching for Makko powder, which led me to Agarwood, and Oud. I am yet to experiment with the Oud yet, I will be trying some blends with some other exotic oils and absolutes. I also tried a Makkoh trail in rice ash and was really impressed with how well it burnt, and how much herbs and resins I could lay out on the trail. I really don't think many people in the circles I travel in, would have any idea about these methods, and I look forward to sharing them.
This type smells very nice but it only stays there for 4 hours maximum. Very resinous and very aromatic. If you longevity is not a concern, you should consider it.
