When it comes to "Yaoshen", I believe that a lot of people's reaction is fake agarwood, because a long time ago, there were many outlaws who made and sold fake agarwood under the banner of "Yaoshen" from the early days of its return. Therefore, as soon as people heard about "Yaoshen", they thought it was fake agarwood. So, how to identify the true and false of agarwood? Introduction to the identification method of traditional Chinese medicine agarwood.
As we all know, 'Yaochen' is not a high-grade agarwood. Some people first heard 'Yaochen', because it contains a word 'medicine', they feel that it is related to health. Health is what people pursue, so they think it is a relatively high-grade agarwood. In fact, "Yaochen" agarwood is not ornamental and can not be used for carving or making Buddhist beads. In addition to spices, there is also medicine.
Secondly, not all places call it 'Yaochen'. Vietnam is the origin of traditional high-quality Aquilaria. There are three most representative Aquilaria: Yazhuang Qinan, Fushen laterite and Huian shuichen. Yaochen refers to Huian Aquilaria. The overall color of Huian Aquilaria is dark, with a different elegance in the fragrance and a slight bitter fragrance in the sweetness. In the early days of the market, some fake 'Yaochen' with dark fragrance and pungent Chinese medicine flavor just imitated the characteristics of Huian agarwood.
"Yaoshen" is a term used in the past. The boundary between the oil and wood of 'Yaochen' is very vague, while the oil line and wood of real Agaricus are clearly distinguishable. In addition, the oil of 'Yaochen' is generally in the form of paste without glass light, while the oil of natural Agaricus is in the form of oil, which will show glass light when the oil is thick!
