This fragrant oil is extracted from holy Gaharu wood, sometimes also called ‘Garu’. The content of the bottle contains pure Gaharu wood oil, which means that it is not blended with alcohol. Hence, if one is a Muslim, one does not need to worry about any implications of the oil being haram.
Gaharu oil serves multiple purposes; for instance, one can anoint some of the holy oil onto the skin for cleansing the body from impurities and the mind from negative energies to restore one’s spiritual balance. Also, when a person suspects him or herself being a victim of black magic, or when one has to visit a haunted place, the Gaharu oil offers protection against evil spirits and malevolent ghosts. Likewise, especially those who are by nature very sensitive to negative vibrations, will find the Gaharu oil very effective for protection from various negative influences.
Furthermore, Gaharu oil can be used to consecrate various kinds of ritual items, such as holy statues, sacred images, amulets, and talismans. By anointing a little bit of Gaharu oil on such items, they will be further empowered with powerful blessings and increase the magical qualities. Hence, the holy oil is suitable for regular cleansing of the sacred blade of a heirloom keris as well.
Besides its ritual purposes, Gaharu oil also has various medical benefits. As a traditional medicine, the oil is praised for its efficacy in aromatherapy as well as treatment of asthma.
