Dragon’s Blood comes from the resin of a tree native to the Canary Islands and Morocco as well as from a rattan palm found on Indonesian islands.
Just as the name infers, it is a dark-red resin that hardens much like the resin forms of frankincense, myrrh, and copal.
My first purchase of dragon’s blood was the size of a softball! I had to take a hammer to it in order to break it up into smaller pieces and powder for use in the smudging blend. The powdered form can be burned on charcoal and can be incorporated into candles, lotions, soaps, and stick incense.
Some consider it the strongest protection herb you can find. It is said to have aphrodisiac qualities, but the main purpose is protection.
This resin can also protect you from the less harmful yet still annoying challenges that may arise, especially when you are in large groups of people like at a fair, trade show, airport, or convention.
Instructions for use: Burn on charcoal in an abalone shell or fire safe dish.
