Diluting rich Agarwood/Oud
I hope I am posting this in the right place. I choose Just Starting Out, because I am generally still new to Agarwood, and am learning about it's many facets. I am also new to this site, and this will be my first post.
I recently purchased a $180 dollar bottle of proportedly Vintage 1968 Cambodian Oud (3cc). It is a rather strong and potent version of Agarwood. I would describe it as being very terpene and fecal. But, still quite pleasantly spicy and woodsy. But, it's hard to find ways of enjoying it by itself. It seems to retain it's terpentine qualities, which I don't really enjoy. Same with the barnyard like scent. So, I was wondering what I could use to dilute the oil, or what type of carrier oil I should use, so that I can wear it or use it in a diffuser. Any suggestions??

Hi there anatta,
Try using fractionated coconut oil, as it seems to have an indefinite shelf life, and also happens to be scentless.
I guess you could use DPG as well.
Do you think dilution would eliminate the turpiness? Or could it be that the turpiness inherently part of the scent profile of the oil (in other words diluting wouldn't really help)?
