Our country ,Indonesia , have many kind of aqualaria.sp agarwood species like it " Malacenssis and Microcarpha.agarwood oil is a product from agarwood trees,but from low grade agarwood .The price this oil is very expensive now,especially in Saudi Arabia. I have a small destilation machine in my home ,where i'am use it to make a agarwood oil.I choose to distilate agarwood a little from Bangka island (sumatra),because they have a many same smells/aroma character and the smell of chips is also almost one the best agarwood smell in the world.

I spent 3- 4 days to extract this agarwood low grade raw material to make oil & processed untill the" oud " is pure. Oil has ready sell to arabian traders in jakarta,riyadh,and bangladesh with size,which the name is " TOLA"( about 12 cc ) .The scent oud oil from my distilation machine is sweet,soft,woody,naturaly,fruity and fresh .And the colour is variatif like a dark tea brown, and dark green.
