Dragon's Blood

The Dragon's Blood tree is very unique, because it does not have the look that most trees usually do. 

This tree produces blood-red sap, the sap out of the trunk, and the sap was touted as the dragon's blood. Dragon's blood has been used as medicine and dye since the 1st century by the ancient Roman society, ancient Greek, and Arabic. Then, around the 18th century, used as a varnish for violins in Italy. Today, dragon's blood is still used as a varnish violin and used in the photographic process.

When burnt, Dragon's Blood creates a strong herbal and spicy fragrance. It's so earthy, dark, spicy and  is very pleasing to me, I love it!

Magickal Powers of Dragon's Blood when burned are Love, Protection, Exorcism,Courage and Sexual Potency. Use for Courage, Energy, Strength, Purification, Changes, Determination and Cleansing.  Carried for good luck.

A pinch of Dragon’s blood added to other incenses increases their potency and power. 

In folk medicine, dragon's blood is used externally as a wash to promote healing of wounds and to stop bleeding. It is used internally for chest pains, post-partum bleeding, internal traumas and menstrual irregularities.
Here are some other Folk Names for Dragon's Blood: Blood, Blume, Calamus Draco, Draconis Resina, Sanguis Draconis, Dragon's Blood Palm.

Dragon's Blood's scientific name (Daemonorops draco, D. propinquos)
