Ee Eaglewood  
Eaglewood

Eaglewood, Agarwood or oodh (or just agar) is a dark resinous heartwood that forms in Aquilaria and Gyrinops trees.

The odour of agarwood is complex and pleasing, with few or no similar natural analogues. As a result, agarwood and its essential oil gained great cultural and religious significance in ancient civilizations around the world, being mentioned throughout one of the world's oldest written texts – the Sanskrit Vedas from India.
