Scented Mountain Cultivated Aloeswood Incense

Essence of the Ages™, in conjunction with Scented Mountain,
is pleased to offer the world's first cultivated agarwood products.
Agarwood, also called aloeswood (in religious texts), gaharu (in Indonesia, Malaysia and Papua New Guinea), jin-koh (in Japan), Ch´en Hsiang or Ch´en Xiang (in China), Chim-Hyuang (in Korea) and oud (in the Middle East), is a resin produced inside a tropical rainforest tree called Aquilaria. The dark resinous wood has a magnificent aroma when burned. It is considered the finest natural incense and has been used for cultural, religious and medicinal purposes for millennia. 
Flowers of Aquilaria
Leaves of the Aquilaria Until recently, the only source of agarwood was from old growth trees growing in tropical rainforests of Asia. It takes decades to hundreds of years to form. With less than one tree per hundred producing the resin and no way of knowing which trees have the resinous wood, indiscriminate cutting has resulted in very few old growth Aquilaria trees remaining in the wild. Although protected by law in most countries and by international treaties, illegal poaching still occurs and old growth trees are endangered.
Most authentic agarwood on the market is from rare, old trees cut illegally. Conservation groups and international organizations have mounted efforts to inform consumers of the environmental problems associated with buying agarwood products that originate from wild forest grown trees. Many other agarwood incense products offered for sale are fake substitutes containing a blend of other herbaceous materials and do not have the true fragrance of agarwood.

Scented Mountain cultivated agarwood products are different.

Based on research from scientific investigations carried out over more than a decade by the Agarwood Research Project at the University of Minnesota in cooperation with the Rainforest Project Foundation, methods to cultivated agarwood have been developed and it can now be produced in a sustainable way in plantation grown trees.

These trees are farmed in the mountains of southern Vietnam and products from them will provide a new economy for poor rural people.

We are proud to offer fine cultivated agarwood products for you to enjoy with peace of mind knowing it is certified as grown from sustainable plantations.

Premium Agarwood Chips

Scented Mountain has become known for incredible cultivated Vietnamese agarwood incense. But THIS has to be their 'crowning glory' to date.

The amount being held in this hand is 25 grams! The size and quantity is what you can expect in a 25 gram bag!

These incredible, long agarwood chips are selected for their size and fine quality. The chips are 5 to 8 inches (12 to 20 cm) long and are ideal for direct lighting to produce the agarwood aroma. Just light an end with a flame and blow out quickly. Repeat several times to generate the amount of aroma desired. The volatile compounds rise when burned so the fragrance is best after a few minutes when the aromatic compounds have had the chance to disperse down into the room.

These beautiful agarwood chips truly have royal quality! And in addition to their amazing scent they are also excellent for display on the mantle or home altar.
