Oud - Agarwood - Aloeswood - Agor - Agoro Gach - Lignum Aloes - Chen Xiang

As-Suyuti in "Medicine of the Prophet" said, "Aloeswood is the wood from which the tooth-pick is made. Said Abu Hanffa: aloeswood is the best for the brushing of the teeth, for it renders speech more eloquent, frees the tongue, benefits the weakness due to disease, generates an appetite, and clears the brain. It is better if it is used moistened with rose-water. Tradition says that Ibn ‘Abbas said: In the tooth-pick there are ten benefits: it gives a pleasing perfume to the mouth, strengthens the gums, dissolves phlegm, drives scales away from the teeth, and opens the stomach for food. It is in accordance with [the Sunnah] and it pleases the Lord. It adds to a man’s merit and it gives joy to the angels. Said al-Hadi'qa: When the Prophet, peace be upon him, got up in the morning, he used to clean his mouth with an aloeswood stick.”
