Dragon’s Blood – Pure, Organic & Wild-Crafted

Sangre de Drago is sap from the Dragons Blood tree. Known as Croton lechleri.  A great helper for all of us because of the antiviral, antibacterial, antimicrobial, anti-hemorrhagic and anti-fungal properties.

Harvest twice

Sap from the tree is taken twice during its life. Once when the tree is around 10years old. Cuts are made in the bark and the sap is caught in buckets. Not too much is taken so the tree can recover. This can’t be done during rainy season obviously. When the tree is at the end of its’ life cycle at around 15 years the sap is harvested again.

Many trees are planted on the ancestral lands of our suppliers to have a steady stock of this beautiful helper.
Dragon’s blood is a red, wine colored sap from the jungle tree Croton lechleri, with a long history of indigenous use in the Amazon region.

Tradtional use

Many Amazonian healers have used this resin to relieve wounds and cure ulcers, hemorrhages, colic, dyspepsia and tumours. Other traditional uses are for healing lesions due to infections, easing pain and treating gastrointestinal distress including diarrhea and internal ulcers.

As little as a single drop of Dragon’s Blood shows excellent benefits as a first aid treatment for insect bites and stings, lacerations and burns, stimulating the healing of wounds by aiding in the formation of fresh collagen.

The antioxidant effect on the skin makes it a very valuable ingredient for expensive anti-aging facial creams.
The sap we offer is of the highest quality, guaranteed, employing stringent standards of hygiene from tree to bottle. Our product is fairly and directly traded without intermediaries.

For shipping to all countries except the USA, we offer two types of shipping:
    • Registered shipping: This comes with tracking and is faster than our free shipping.
    • Free shipping: For this service no tracking is available. It tends to be half as quick as the registered shipping. But hey, if you're not in a hurry and tracking is not important please do use this reliable shipping option!
 
For shipping to Canada we also offer DHL Express on certain orders  
For shipping to the USA, we offer four types of shipping: Registered PostNL: This option ships using PostNL, the national postal service of The Netherlands. Once the package arrives in the US, the USPS take over the shipping. Orders can be tracked with the tracking tool found at www.usps.com. Free shipping: There is no tracking available for this reliable, but slower shipping method. Packages ship with PostNL and then are handed over to the USPS and deliveries may take up to 30 days. This option is not always available, depending on what you are ordering and where you are shipping to. Registered via NY: Depending on which state you are shipping to, this option will be available in order to try and ensure that there are no delays to your package as it enters the US. Packages are shipped first of all with PostNL to a NY forwarding address and then, from there, shipped on to you. We will update you on the tracking once your order is shipped from the Netherlands and then again once it is forwarded from NY.  Updates can take up to 24 hours because we work in different time zones around the world.
When you place an order in our web shop, you will automatically see the shipping options that are available, depending on your cart contents and the US state you are shipping to. For different states we use different methods.
Free Shipping from USA: For customers ordering only our Mimosa hostilis Hidden Valley and/or Mexican MHRBs, we have also established a warehouse that will exclusively ship to our customers from within the US.  This has the advantage of offering tracked shipping without having to pass through customs and a delivery time of only 3-4 working days. Orders will be shipped with USPS Priority mail.  This service is available for Mimosa only orders.  Any other products will need to ordered separately and will be shipped from the Netherlands.   Good to know: All of our orders are packed and shipped discreetly with only the obligatory information such as shipping and return address on the outside. Registered orders outside of Europe are sent with PostNL who hand your order over to the national postal service of your country. For instance in the US, packages are handed over to the USPS. Registered orders within Europe are sent with DPD. Fast and trackable at all times. Our Free shipping option is slow(er) but very reliable too. Estimated shipping time for outside Europe is between two to four weeks depending on postal flows.
For valuable orders we would advise choosing the Registered option.
