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.
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.
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.
