Agarwood Tree Bark Resin

Besides different forms of agarwood, be it solid thin pieces, have you collected some Agarwood tree bark for your daily fumigation needs?

Look at the photo below, this is one natural resin formation of the tree bark of Malaccensis Agarwood tree, you can easily find wild and cultivated agarwood tree barks, but for safety reasons, always go for the natural ones :)

For one large agarwood tree, there are alot of tree bark coming out, most of the time, everyone focus on the higher resinated agarwood like agarwood heartwood, which is inside the tree, some agarwood shells/ears near the visible region and etc.

The agarwood tree bark actually has very good scent if it is of higher quality, certain sinking grade tree barks are worth for collection, most of the ordinary ones are for distillation, some thin pieces may be good for grinding into powder, the powder can then be use for incense making and also use on electric burner.

I have grinded quite a number of high quality sinking tree bark into fine powder form for my own fumigation needs, some are given to good friends for private usage. Not sure about other vendor's tree bark powder, but mine has a very light and sweet notes, a bit similar to Highland Papua mild notes on certain temperature.

Most of the agarwood tree barks you find on the market are non sinking, wild natural sinking grade are better for collection. Cultivated skin are of course easily available, some are sinking grade too.

Doing some google search, it will give you tons of dark color cultivated agarwood skin or agarwood tree bark, many of them are painted black and added extra oil to produce that glossy bright feel like waxy coating apples :)

There are many ways of producing thin slices of agarwood skin/tree bark in cultivated agarwood farms but whether it is safe for usage, it is up to the readers to judge. If you happen to light up some cultivated wood and discovered huge amount of black smoke bursting out, maybe it is not suitable for brewing tea :)

My suggestion is to buy wild agarwood tree bark skin, especially those which are not painted to look darker in color, agarwood tree bark in natural brown colors are safer choice if you are not familiar in spotting those modified pieces which are available widely in markets. Natural ones with "little 3d spots" are also good for collection too :)
