Notes (Agarwood):

All thy garments smell of myrrh, and aloes...

This is the aloe of the Old Testament; that of the New Testament is generally considered to be Aloe vera. The darker of several types of eaglewood, especially when partially diseased and decayed, is highly valued in perfumery, as incense, and for fumigation. The treasured unhealthy wood is so much more valuable than the healthy, that the healthy tree is too often destroyed in the quest for patches of unhealthy wood. Called agar, it is powdered and used as a flea and lice repellent. The soft and fragrant inner wood, itself worth its weight in gold, was molded and used as a setting for precious stones. Myth has it in the East that eaglewood is the only tree to have descended to Man from the Garden of Eden, all others having perished. Supposedly, Adam brought one of its shoots and transplanted it to the land where he settled, other eaglewoods having sprung from this shoot. That is why it is sometimes called Shoot of Paradise and Paradise Wood. Malayans made cloth from the pounded bark. Annamese make a paper substitute from the bark, having presented 30,000 rolls of aloe paper to a Chinese emperor in A.D (BIB).
