Agarwood, also known as aloeswood or eaglewood in several regions, chen xiang (China), jinkoh or kanankoh (Japan), gaharu or kalabak (Malaysia and Indonesia), krissna (Thailand and Lao), agar (India), and oud (Middle East), is a fragrant resinous heartwood obtained from certain trees belonging to Malvales Thymelaeaceae. It is widely accepted that agarwood was created as a response of the tree to various forms of injury, including natural injuries and artificial injuries.
