The agar tree is considered one of the most expensive timbers in the world so is often referred to as ‘scented luxury’ and ‘black gold’, its global market is reportedly worth £5 billion! The essential oil comes from fungus-infection within the heartwood of the tree where only one in ten trees in the wild actually have the infection this makes it a potentially threatened species due to its high demand.
