What is Dragon’s Blood?
Sangre de Dragon, more commonly know as Dragon’s Blood, is a wild crafted resin that comes from the Croton Uechleri trees found in the Amazon Rainforest of South America. The heart shaped leaves and the blood-like red sap speak to the abilities of this beautiful tree to heal wounds and cleanse the blood. The Flowers found high in the branches resemble the dragon’s head, thus the interesting name, as well as a symbol of its fierce healing ability.
The sap is rich in taspine, an alkaloid, known for its tissue and skin regeneration properties, which quickly stops bleeding and seals wounds. The high percentage of proanthocyanidins also found in grapefruit seeds, make Dragon’s Blood one of the most powerful antioxidants on our planet.
I first learned of Dragon’s Blood from a friend who had just returned from a trip to the Amazon jungles, where he had been taught by the local natives to use the resin to heal cuts and scratches.
Medical research of Croton Uechleri has found that it contains anti-tumor and anti-bacterial properties. It supports digestive and intestinal health and can even stop bleeding ulcers.
