10. Relieve Itching with Agarwood Essential Oil

Various conditions, such as neurological disorders, allergies, skin inflammation, or poison ivy, can trigger irritation and severe itching. Repeatedly scratching the itchy area often exacerbates the condition, and excessive scratching can lead to bacterial invasions. Agarwood essential oil acts as an anti-itch agent, effectively alleviating the maddening itch.

11. Ease Coughing with Agarwood Essential Oil

When faced with a dry, unproductive cough resulting from inflammation or irritation in sensitive respiratory tissues, agarwood essential oil can come to the rescue. It reduces inflammation and soothes the cough, aiding the return to normalcy of sensitive respiratory tissues. You can incorporate a few drops of agarwood essential oil into a diffuser, dilute it with a carrier oil for chest and throat massages, or use it as a mouthwash—these are three effective techniques to alleviate a troublesome cough.

12. Decongest with Agarwood Essential Oil

Agarwood essential oil, with its anti-inflammatory, expectorant, and soothing properties, is a potent contender for reducing inflammation in the respiratory tract. It effectively loosens mucus and soothes irritated mucous membranes, providing relief from congestion. To clear a stuffy nose, add a few drops of agarwood essential oil to a ceramic bowl filled with hot water (avoid plastic containers, as they absorb the agarwood’s fragrance).

Cover your head with a towel, lean over the bowl (but not too close to the water’s surface to prevent scalding your skin), close your eyes, and use the towel to trap the steam, ensuring it doesn’t escape. Inhale deeply. The steam infused with agarwood essential oil helps clear nasal passages and sinuses. Take breaks to blow your nose and remove excess mucus. Continue inhaling the steam until the water cools and the steam dissipates.

13. Use Agarwood Essential Oil for Gout Pain Relief

Gout pain is one of the most excruciating types of pain, often compared to the pain of childbirth or kidney stones. Unlike giving birth or dealing with kidney stones, gout is a chronic condition that causes prolonged suffering and severely impacts one’s quality of life. Traditional healing practices have utilized agarwood essential oil for centuries to treat gout. It is believed to dissolve uric acid crystals that accumulate in the joints of gout sufferers.

Apply a single drop of agarwood essential oil and massage it into the painful joints. In addition to inhibiting uric acid, the pain-relieving properties of agarwood will alleviate discomfort, and the fragrance will provide relief.

14. Address Restless Leg Syndrome with Agarwood Essential Oil

Agarwood essential oil can alleviate muscle spasms and cramps while soothing nerve fibers that transmit uncontrolled signals to the muscles.

Restless leg syndrome, particularly troublesome at night and often disruptive to sleep, can be mitigated by applying one or two drops of agarwood essential oil to your feet before bedtime.

15. Achieve Quality Sleep with Agarwood Essential Oil

Agarwood essential oil can help overcome insomnia resulting from an overactive mind, stress, anxiety, or emotional issues. It frees your mind from the confines of the present moment, inducing a calm, gentle, and tranquil state of mind. This enables a peaceful night’s sleep with pleasant dreams.

16. Boost Immunity and Enhance Well-Being

Agarwood essential oil, renowned for bolstering immunity and uplifting one’s spirit, is readily available when needed. A modest application to your pulse points or inhaling its fragrance can provide the physical and emotional energy you may lack.

17. Supports memory and improves learning performance

Using agarwood essential oil to support memory and increase learning capacity is a traditional practice in Hindu society. This makes agarwood essential oil extremely important here. For the elderly or postmenopausal women suffering from brain fog, agarwood essential oil can help greatly. For children with attention deficit disorder, this essential oil can help them concentrate and remember information.

How to use: smell the fragrance or rub a drop of essential oil on pulse points or temples.

18. Prevents nausea and vomiting

In traditional Chinese medicine, from ancient times to present, agarwood has been used to reduce nausea and vomiting. Smell the scent to soothe an upset stomach or add a few drops to a carrier oil to massage your stomach and abdomen. If vomiting is accompanied by diarrhea, this essential oil will also help solve the problem.

19. Use agarwood essential oil as a perfume on special occasions

The smell of agarwood is extremely unique and can radiate different fragrances depending on different times and locations. Agarwood is a combination of woody scent, mountain scent, tropical warmth mixed with floral and fruity scents. The first note is strong, the last note lingers for a long time and changes as the fragrance dries.
