Dragon's Blood - heal your wounds


Dragon’s blood is a natural plant resin with a strong, somewhat sweet fragrance. It’s dark red in color, which is part of what gives dragon’s blood its name. The resin is extracted from many different tropical tree species commonly called dragon trees. These may come from the plant groups Croton, Pterocarpus, Daemonorops, or Dracaena. For a plant, resins perform a protective function defending against pathogens and pests.


Sangre de Grado, Spanish for "blood of the dragon," has a long history of use for both the bark and the resin. An early reference dating back to the 1600s notes that Spanish explorer P. Bernabe Cobo found that the sap was being used by indigenous tribes throughout Peru and Ecuador.


The plant resin has been used for thousands of years, there are records of its use also among the ancient Greeks and Romans and in India, China, and the Middle East.



The resin and bark are used in traditional medicine both internally and externally. Studies are demonstrating its ability to help with a variety of health concerns due to its anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, anti-tumor, antimicrobial, and wound healing properties. It’s also been used as a dye, paint, incense, or for spiritual purposes.


Dragon's blood helps heal scrapes, bites, wounds, stings, rashes, and skin problems. Applying this sap topically forms a barrier-like second skin and shields it from environmental damage.

It's worth incorporating it in your skin care routine.
