Agarwood is formed from the trunk of the Aquilaria crassna. When the tree is damaged (storms break branches, borers, ants make nests...) the sap of the tree will accumulate and cover the infected area for protection.

That is the reason why experts named it submerged agarwood, also known as sink agarwood.

How to recognize natural and artificial Agarwood?

Currently, natural sink  are increasingly rare due to over-exploitation, the market demand is high, leading to a lot of counterfeiting. They sprayed chemicals on the trunk of the tree to speed up the production of agarwood. When the agarwood oil accumulates on the trunk of the tree, it will form thin pieces of wood like a cover sheet. Then, the craftsman stacks each piece on top of each other and joins them with a special glue into wooden blocks. These agarwood blocks are thicker and stronger than ordinary wood blocks, when dropped into the water, they sink, so they are called sunken agarwood. There is also agarwood cooking oil, which is actually young gourd wood that is cooked in a pot of chemical agarwood essential oil. When cooking for a long time, the piece of bass will become heavy and sink, making many people think this is a natural sink. In fact, they are all artificial agarwood products using poor quality chemicals, which are harmful to the health of users.

From there, the selling price will be pushed up dozens, to hundreds of times higher than the original value. This method is often applied to the blocks of depression.

In addition, there are also some mutant plants, although planted for a few years, have a lot of Agarwood essential oil content, enough to be submerged under water. However, this type is very rare in nature.

Because the process of producing agarwood takes a long time, submerged agarwood is a very popular yang energy wood, a very valuable oriental medicine. It has many healing and conditioning effects. In addition, agarwood is also a valuable material in the manufacture of Buddhist artifacts.
