Dragon’s Blood Incense has a slightly perfumed scent with a Sweet Floral tone with a touch of Earthiness, offering an Uplifting, Refreshing and Alive feeling whilst still retaining a Smooth and Calming Effect.
Dragon's Blood, as an Incense, is usually made as a result of mixing the tree’s resin along with the Spicy and Woodsy Essential Oils. Very small pieces of Resin or fine Powder can be burned on charcoal. Just start with a very small amount, about the size of a lentil, allowing this amount to finish smoking, before adding more.
Did you know?
DRAGONS BLOOD is derived from the DRACO TREE? which in Latin means 'Dragon'. Dragon's Blood has a RED Resin removed from the truck of a tree which is used to make Smudge Sticks, Powder, Resin, Candles, Perfume and Incense, which is be used to drive evil and negativity away. Dragon’s Blood was traditionally burned for Love and Protection.
The RED RESIN has been in continuous use since ancient times as Varnish, Medicine, Incense and Dye.
A great degree of confusion existed in Ancient times with regard to the source and identity of Dragon's Blood. Some Medieval writers claimed its source as the literal Blood of Elephants and Dragons who had perished in mortal combat.
The resin of Dracaena species, "true" dragon's blood, and the very poisonous mineral Cinnabar (mercury sulphide) were often confused by the ancient Romans. Voyagers to the Canary Islands in the 15th century obtained Dragon's Blood as dried garnet-red drops from Dracaena tree native to the Canary Islands and Morocco.
The Resin is exuded from its wounded trunk or branches. Dragon's blood is also obtained by the same method from Dracaena Cinnabari, which is unique to the island of Socotra in the Arabian Sea.
This resin was traded to ancient Europe via the Incense Road.
This fragrance is also found in our Nandita Organic, Nitiraji Platinum & New Moon ranges of Incense Sticks.
