Agarwood Info from Trygve Harris (from Ross)

Absolute Trygve is the blog of Trygve Harris, who owns a Essential Oils store in NYC.  She is one of the few in the business who actually goes into the countries where the oils are made, direct to the growers and distillers to make sure she gets the best. She is also a self admitted Agarwood lover and writes some great articles about it and other aromatic materials. This one just came out and I wanted to bring it to your attention. Makes for some very interesting reading. As a side note, Trygve is currently distilling her own Oman Frankincense oils, which I would think smell amazing.

There are also some new articles at The Incense Room, which is the discusion group for the website Incense Making. Check in the News section for information on Sandalwood cultivation and genitic help. This could mean an upswing in Sandalwood production, not right away, but sooner then expected.

    Her blog on “sustainable” agarwood is really thought-provoking and worth a read. It seems like there was a bit of a bubble in farmed agarwood, and that the situation with wildharvested agarwood is much more complicated than most of us would think. Still, it doesn’t bode well for the future of high-quality agarwood incense, does it?
