Agarwood, by nature is created by a bacteria formation on the bark of a tree which results in the distinct essence that emanates from burning of this wood. When burnt, the scent calms and comforts the heart and soothes the soul.
Oudh (meaning wood in Arabic) is an alluring mystery even to those who know it well. Used by ancient Egyptians for embalming, the fragrance-issuing resin is produced when the fungus Phialophora parasitica invades the Aquilaria tree. The result is the formation of a dark and extremely aromatic resin.
Oudh dries unnecessary moisture while strengthening the intestines and brings relief and comfort to the heart.
|Quoted from ‘Healing with the Medicine of the Prophet’ by Imam Ibn Qayiyim Al-Jauziyah|

“Bukhoor” or “Bakhoor” (Arabic بخور) is the Arabic name given to scented chips/bricks or a blend of natural traditional ingredients, mainly woodchips (Oudh, Agarwood or Aloeswood) soaked in fragrant oils and mixed with other natural ingredients (Resin, Musk, Ambergris, Sandalwood, flower oils and others). These scented chips/bricks are burned in charcoal burners to perfume the house and clothing with the fragrance rich smoke.
This is used specifically on special occasions like weddings or on relaxing times and love occasions or generally just to perfume the house or store, and to boost positive energy. It is traditional in many Arab countries to pass Bukhoor among guests in Majlis as a gesture of hospitality.
