Eaglewood Essential Oil is distilled from the bark of a hearty tree that grows in Indonesia. This rare and robust resin only appears in the bark that has been naturally disrupted by fungus, insect invasion, lightning strikes, or from the friction of rubbing against another tree. “As a response to the alteration, an oleoresin containing secondary metabolites is produced and over a period of several years the heartwood fibers become infused with this aromatic resin.” (Peace-Rhind 2014) Altered sections of bark are aged and then distilled for several days to produce this transformational oil.
This rare bark was written about in the ancient Sanskrit Vedas, Buddhists use it to transform ignorance, and Tibetan monks use it to still the mind. In the Vedas, the Aquilaria family of trees is listed as one of the nature’s eight fragrant bounties.
