Origin of Thai agarwood buds

Thai agarwood buds are imported directly from the Golden Temple country, which is highly appreciated for its consumer health care products.

Therefore, Thai agarwood products are mainly derived from cultivated agarwood and engineered agarwood. With a small output and a lot of finished products sold, Thai agarwood incense buds have not actually been tested for health safety.
