Agarwood: a trace of the atmosphere of Xiangdao culture

Agarwood, also known as “Shenshui incense”, has been listed as the head of the fragrance since ancient times, the king of the fragrance, and is known as “diamond in the fragrant wood”. Hainan Agarwood, “Yixian Zhi” contains: “The leaves are like winter green, the tree is saved, its wood is dry, the skin is rotten, and the heart is fragrant.” The “fragrance” was produced after “wood is dry and folded”. It is a solid -state condensation that combines resin and wood ingredients. It belongs to natural spices. Once ignited, the aroma is shaken. Agarwood is good for fine oils and rich aroma. Hainan Agarwood is considered a prestigious because of its own elegance.


Historically, Agarwood was considered to have the magic of turbidity and clearing the mind, and it was also considered to have the role of the gods of heaven. Therefore, Buddhism, Taoism, Catholicism, Christianity, and Muslim all regard Agarwood as holy things and are the holy products. The Bible even said: “Agarwood is a tree planted by God.” And the literati Yashi also uses the fragrant fragrant fragrance as the style. By the time of the Song Dynasty, the houses and halls were not only refreshing, but the party banquet also burned incense to help. Usually, the practice was also distracted by the inner tranquility, and even became a “incense”. There is even a saying “Guanxiangxin”. Zhu Xi has the poem “Xiangjie” cloud: “The flowers are boundless and drunk, and the spirituality is still quiet.”


Once upon a time, in the years when the west wind was gradual, the traditional fragrance was not smooth. The chemical chemical synthetic perfumes such as the so -called French perfume became popular, and the natural spices were left out and gradually abandoned. Over the years, under the guidance of the concept of natural environmental protection, coupled with the trend of traditional culture, people have begun to pursue the return of simplicity, and the value and status of natural agarwood have gradually risen, and the incense culture has also shone again.
