Different Uses of Oud Oil

Oud Oil also known as Agarwood Oil is extracted from a tropical evergreen tree called Agar tree which was widely available in Assam, India. The wide extinction and rarity of this valuable tree make the Oud oil highly expensive across the world. The countries where these trees are found are - Vietnam, Malaysia, Northeast India, Philippines, Borneo, New Guinea, Indonesia, Thailand, Cambodia, Laos.

You will be amazed if you know how this oil is produced. It is when the tree is attacked by certain fungus; to protect itself the tree releases resin, which is popularly known as Liquid Gold. Most often the fungus infection occurs on the tree, which is around 8-12 years old.

There are two processes through which the Extraction of Oud Oil is done:

  • In Water Distillation Process, Agarwood Chips are fully submerged in water to produce wood soup. Then it is boiled in huge broilers. The steam is captured and condensed; and then the oil floats on the top of the distilled water. When condensed material cools down, the oil and hydrosol are separated and the essential oil is obtained.

  • In Steam Distillation Process, the plant material is placed in a broiler unit and steam is passed through it. The plant releases aromatic molecules and in this state, the fragrant molecules are able to rise along with steam. Cold water is used to cool the vapour. The Liquid is then collected in a container and the oil floats on top while water settles below.Mli>
