Oud Essential Oil, (ORDER NOW). You may not be especially familiar with oud, or the benefits of Oud oil. After all, it doesn’t tend to rank with primrose, lily and ylang ylang as one of the most fragrant floral scents. Nor does it rank with lavender, tea tree or chamomile as the most useful. But, overlook oud and you could be missing out on one of the most complex and interesting scents available on the market today. Not to mention, an oil that is literally worth more than its weight in gold.

And while it may not be the most common, it lays a fair claim to having the richest history. Mentioned in the Bible, the Quran and Buddhist scriptures. people have been waxing lyrical about this deeply evocative scent for thousands of years. The Buddha reportedly claimed that burning oud (otherwise known as agarwood) conjured “the scent of Nirvana”. While other mythologies have suggested that agarwood was the only cutting that Adam was allowed to take from the garden of Eden. Whichever way you look at it, the scent and benefits of oud oil clearly has something rather special.

The Scent

The distinct, raw and earthy scent has been likened to many things. It has a sweet yet sharp tang and has long been used by Sultans and royalty. Today though, it’s more likely to be the signature scent of actors and rock stars as it’s the main element in Giorgio Armani’s oud Royal and Tom Ford’s oud Wood.

Where does oud essential oil come from?

Oud, roughly translating from Arabic as from wood is a fragrant, dark, resinous wood (agarwood). An oil that grows predominantly in South East Asia. Its origins are inauspicious but when the pale and healthy Aquilaria tree becomes infected with mould. It produces the dark, scented resin known as oud (sometimes named “liquid gold”). It is thought that fewer than 2% of Agarwood trees produce this resin making oud one of the most expensive fragrances in the world. What’s more, experts think true oud comes from only the oldest trees, making this rare phenomenon even rarer.
