Dragons Blood Resin Powder (1/2 oz - 14 grams)

    Product Information

    Dragon's Blood: This dramatic sounding resin isn't quite what the name suggests! Dragon's Blood resin generally comes from the fruits of climbing palm trees, such as Daemonorops Draco, in areas of tropical Asia. The fruit of the trees is covered in scales and the bright red shiny resin seeps out between the scales - which looks a bit like blood coming out from a cut (or a scaly dragon's hide). As it seeps out, it's traditionally collected, cleansed and then melted down to form a hard chunk of resin.

    This resin is this packet is a powder form, rather than a harder 'rock' form like other resins. The benefit of this is that it makes it easier to sprinkle onto a charcoal disc for burning.

    When burnt, Dragon's Blood creates a strong herbal and spicy fragrance. It's traditionally used in Indian ceremonies to get rid of negative energies and spirits and is regarded as having cleansing properties.

    As well as for burning, the resin has gained other uses throughout history. In the 18th century Italian violinmakers are said to have used it as a source of varnish for their instruments, and the Greeks and Romans regarded it as having medicinal properties. The warriors in ancient China used to carry it with them when going into battle. If they were wounded they used the resin to stop their wounds bleeding so much.

    How Do I Use Dragon's Blood? To burn the resin as an incense you need to have a heat source. Most people use a charcoal disc that is designed specifically for this purpose. The disc should be placed inside a heat resistant container with earth inside if required to shield the strong heat. Once alight, the resin can be spooned gently onto the charcoal and the resin becomes an incense and the aromas are released. You can then add more resin as required.

    Safety Note: Never leave unattended. Do not place container on flammable surface.
