OUD OIL (AGARWOOD ESSENTIAL OIL EXTRACT)
Known as oud (or oudh), it comes from the wood of the Southeast Asian agar (aquilaria) tree. When the wood becomes infected with a particular type of mold, the tree reacts by producing a dark, scented resin, which is often called “liquid gold.”The cheapest oud oil is distilled from aloeswood that costs as little as $20 a kilogram, while the finest oud was distilled from wood that today has a starting price of $50,000 per kilogram.
Agarwood tea is meant to be drank on a daily basis in order to obtain and maintain long lasting health benefits.

Agarwood removes mercury from your system, which reduces the risk of mercury related neurological disorders and works to prevent the aging of your skin.
