History and Additional Information
Agar oil is by far one of the most precious and expensive essential oils. Since each tree can take over 300 years to produce resin, it makes agarwood oil very rare. But, a little can go a long way. The scent of a single drop will last for hours.
Known for its animalic undertones, agarwood has been know for centuries as an aphrodisiac. Oddly enough, it has been used as incense in prayer rituals and has strong biblical ties to Adam and Eve. He apparently covered his genitals with leaves from the agarwood tree!
