  • Agarwood Oil Bacteria

    Agarwood Distiller Machine

    We need to analyze, how Agarwood Oil could have a better smell and thick?

    One expert from German said that the Agarwood smell came from bacteria in the Agarwood chips, when we distill Agarwood Chips and heat it more then 100 Celsius  just said 200 Celsius the oil scent will be Burnt, why the oil scent is burnt???, because the bacteria in the Agarwood chips  is die, not all die but almost all, that is why the Agarwood oil scent is burnt.

    and when you distill Agarwood chips under the heat 100 Celsius you will find a very nice scent, because the bacteria is still life, longer you keep the bacteria life on the Agarwood oil it will make the smell of Agarwood oil stronger and better.

    if the bacteria live, it will make the bacteria develop and make the scent of the Agarwood oil better, nice color and thicker, the bacteria will be stronger and the scent will be better.

    Now people say Aged oil, keep the oil in 3 months or 1 or 3,4,5 years, for example it is almost impossible if there is a family said that they feed their baby every day and the baby could walk in 4 months.

    IT is impossible to keep the Agarwood oil in few years and you said it is Muattaq Oud Oil or Tsaqel Agarwood Oil.




  • Agarwood Trade or Oud Trade in Saudi Arabia

    Agarwood Oud Saudi Arabia

    In our program go for Umrah to the holy land in the kingdom of Saudi Arabia

    on April and May last month, our chance to meet with several owners off perfume factory and agarwood oil seller.

    The price that we offer they like, they really need pure agarwood oil, agarwood oil production is limited and demand of market is huge in Saudi Arabia.

    It’s amazing, in saudi arabia too many stores of Agarwood oil, at a mall, you can see dozens of agarwood oil stores, one company can have 3 even 4 stores in one mall. For us in Indonesia it is a wonderful thing.

    What we found is Arabian peoples they only know Cambodia oil, the oil on their minds is the best and they loved it.

    It is true that Cambodia oil has its own characteristic odor, a strange smell, which is difficult to be liked except by lovers of Agarwood oil itself.

    When the shopkeeper offers kalimantan Agarwood oil we sell to them, buyers are asking, is this Agarwood oil from Cambodia?

    Imagine how they liked the oil.

    Agarwood oil merchant in saudi each has special ingredients for Agarwood oil that is difficult to imitate, some say that the herbs come from Thailand, and some say that India man is the expert. Smell of Agarwood oil could last on the hand long – long time, the smell continues strong, although rub on the skin, rub on clothes or in tisue can lasting for days.

    If for Agarwood chips, they are interested in the smell of Agarwood Merauke and next is Kalimantan.

    Nice can be in a pleasant atmosphere in the kingdom of Saudi Arabia.

  • Borneo Agarwood Tree

    Knowing the Borneo Agarwood Tree

    Borneo has two type of famous Agarwood tree, Just say the name is Agarwood A and Agarwood B.

    The Agarwood A live in high land / plateau and Agarwood B live in lowlands, not impossible Agarwood A also live in lowlands, or vice vista,  but very little tree.

    The best for oil in our experience and the team experience is Agarwood A.

    Why not much distiller distills this Agarwood A Material? They distilled, depending to the material, very little Agarwooder (a man that look for the Agarwood) want to find this Agarwood A material, due to the hard terrain, and the cost that paid to them almost the same.

    The type of material makes the Agarwood oil scent is different, like from Tarakan, Berau, Malinau etc, although sometimes the scent almost close to each other, because they found Agarwood A and B in one area and they do not different it and directly distill it.

    Time to time experiences teach us, some distiller use formula of mixing that two type material and found a nice Borneo oil.

    Have a good day

    Tips and Trick

    In smelling the perfume

    We would like to share our experience in smelling the perfume, especially in Agarwood or in Arabic called Dehn El Oud.

    The Title is “the influence of mind in determining odor”

    When someone test the expensive Dehn El Oud (Agarwood Oil), even the quality of the oil from middle grade, automatically that person will smell the oil scent like he smell high quality and said that oil is very good, fantastic, great, etc.

    We have test one person, just say that the oil name is “A” we put the “A” oil in different two bottles, give two different names and give two different prices, one we give price $250 with name just say Oud Al Indo and the second we give price $500 with name Oud Borneo Tsaqeel

    (The name and price only sample) that person said that the Oud Al Tsaqeel Al-Malaki has better scent then Oud Al Indo.

    You could image if it is happen to Agarwood Oil, if its mix, could you imagine it? Could you different it? It is very hard.

    We will give you the tips, how to smell the Dehn El Oud or Agarwood Oil.

    When you buy Agarwood Oil or Dehn El Oud try not to influence with the price, with the oil description, if the oil you have bought before, try not to remember the scent that you have smell, try to make your own idea, if you buy Borneo Agarwood oil, with description bla.. bla.. bla.. You try not to focus with the description when you smell the Borneo, try your own smelling, your own deep maid to decided the scent.

    Off course high grade Agarwood oil has better smell then middle grade, but sometime people influence with the price to determine the scent.

    Hopes its could helps you

  • Change Color or Steamed Agarwood

    What is steam Agarwood and for what it is use?

    Agarwood steam or Incense material

    Why this Agarwood is steam?

    This Agarwood steamed to get the color to be black or dark brown, because this Agarwood is the material of Agarwood incense, Indonesian exporter export this Agarwood to Saudi Arabia, Yemen, and other countries.

    First this Agarwood came from jungle, this Agarwood is low grade, the color is white to yellow and light yellow, that is why they have almost no oil inside, and some times little. After it’s brought from jungle and the Agarwood is dried for 3-5 days, the Agarwood is cleaned and the shape is made by our Agarwood man = Agarwooder.

    After the shape is made, the Agarwood is ready to steam, in high temperature, steam, dry, steam, and dry, some time you could steam this Agarwood until 3 times.

    And this is the product.

    How is the scent?

    This product has no scent, because the buyer only needs its color, shape and the Agarwood material, the buyer put their own sauce or essence to this product.

  • Muattaq Oud Oil is Tsaqil Oud Oil


    Q: what is Mua’ttaq Agarwood oil?

    A: Mua’ttaq (Mim, A’in, Ta, Qof) in Arabic letter, it means Aged, Mua’ttaq Agarwood oil mean Agarwood oil that have been Aged (keep) for a long time.

    Q: What is Tsaqil (Tsaqeel) Agarwood Oil – Tsaqil (Tsaqeel) Oud Oil

    A: in Arabic Langguage Tsaqil means Heavy, if you found this word in Agarwood it is mean the Agarwood Oil is thick.

    You could ask other distiller to compare, regarding this Agarwood oil, this Agarwood oil is “Ajib” Weird.

    To make the Agarwood Oil Aged, Muattaq (old),

    the way I know is only keep the Agarwood oil in its bottle, not to dry it and not to open the bottle, put the Agarwood oil under the sun light is only to dry the oil after distillation process, dry under the sunlight depending to water contain in the oil, take about 3-5 days, but sometimes people use a high lamp like 200 watt, and put the Agarwood oil under that lamp, to make the oil save from the dust. And some distiller dry it not using sunlight, only dries it in a room by open the bottle of the Agarwood oil.

    Thickness actually came from the material, if a high material the oil will be thicker, if the Agarwood oil material from middle grade the oil will be thin, 3 month it is too young to make thicker Agarwood oil.

    Keep it in the bottle make the Agarwood oil better, do not open on air, the scent will be week, there is no a big different change if only keep the oil for 3 months, sometime people influence by his feeling, our brain is influence with situation that we made, just say, keep it in the dark place, until 3 months, when we smell it we feel then the change is happen to that oil, I am not agree with that, situation change our sense of smell.

    The condition that we make cheats us.

    Keep the oil old make the oil better, thick, and better scent? The answer is Yes, but not for 3-4 month, it has no different, as long as a I know if you keep for only 3 months.

    I think 10 years and more then 10 year to make the oil different, I have put the oil few month or one year but it has no different. Wallahhu A’alam

  • burn the agarwood chips

    Q: How do I burn wood aloes wood (agarwood)?

    A: Actually there is no special way to burn aloes wood (agarwood) you only needs charcoal that have been burnt until it is red, then place the Agarwood over the charcoal which would you burn.

    But there is also a unique way, some people I met, do something else in burning aloes wood (agarwood), there is little difference, that is, before the aloes wood (agarwood) is placed above the charcoal, they put aloes wood (agarwood) into their mouths, suck the small chips of aloeswood that they will burn, not a big piece of aloes wood (agarwood), the point is, they dampen the aloes wood with saliva, so that if you burn it over charcoal, then the wood will burned slightly – by little, burn longer than wood that has not dampened.

    Agarwood Decoratiion Super

    Agarwood Decoratiion Super

    If you put aloe dried over charcoal, charcoal will directly burn the wood immediately, if the wood was wet, it will not directly burned, the wood will burn longer.

    I do not teach you dirty, you can use the water, without need to use saliva, you just dip in water, then sprinkle and place it over charcoal.
