Description

This is a more affordable version of the very dear Socotra Dragons Blood. You will find that it is about 1/2 the price of the pure resin tears and Apothecary grade powder.

Though it is just as exclusively Medieval Dragons Blood from the very same Dracaena Cinnabari trees on the Island of Socotra, and smells just as phenomenal on the coal, it did not go through the process of cleaning, sorting and grading. Instead, it hardened into a big lump which I have broken into smaller pieces and granules.

The lumps are composed of resin, resin dust and bark. This is extremely hard and compacted material and grinding it is a challenge. Though it does not look as nice as the pure resin tears, it is still a beautiful, high-quality and rare aromatic worthy of the finest nose and censer. I have a limited amount of this material.

If you would like to compare it with the Dragons Blood Pure resin tears and Powder you can find them here-https://www.etsy.com/listing/569548431/dragons-blood-pure-resin-island-of

ABOUT SOCOTRA DRAGONS BLOOD-There are approximately 20 different trees around the world that supply a red resin called Dragons Blood. Some grow in Asia and others South America, but, it is thought that the Dragons Blood from the Dracaena cinnabari tree on the island of Socotra is the original resin traded for thousands of years to the West along with Frankincense and Myrrh through the “Incense Route”. For this reason, it is considered to be the material referred to in ancient Greek and Medieval texts, formularies and Pharmacopoeias through the ages. This has lent this resin the nickname “Medieval” Dragons Blood.

The chemical composition of the different Dragons Blood resins vary as do their traditional therapeutic applications in local folk medicine. The Dragons Blood of D. Cinnabari from Socotra is used in traditional medicine as a wound healer, styptic and coagulant, to treat diarrhoea, dysentery, ulcers of the mouth and the GI tract, as an antiviral and a treatment for eczema.
Traditional applications in the West for Dracaena Cinnabari resin include its use as a pigment and dye and as a durable lacquer used specifically to lend a deep red finish to violins

Perhaps the most familiar use for Socotra Dragons Blood nowadays is as the main ingredient of a deep and permanent blood-red ink and as a potent incense material for ritual and ceremony.

At first inhalation, the fresh resin of D, cinnabari has no scent of its own. This is due to its high proportion of resin and lack of essential oil.
However, once a small piece is laid on the hot coal as incense, the presence and personality of D. Cinnabari expand to fill the room.
Its scent is deep. Rich. Sensuous. A dark deep Amber with a smooth warm nuttiness that is both calming and stimulating. It delivers hints of Red Sea breezes and perfumed summer nights. Only a little bit of this resin is needed to transform a space.

The Dragons Blood tree is harvested differently than Frankincense trees who’s bark is stripped in small sections where the resin can”run” before it solidifies. Only small shallow singular gouges through the bark of D. Cinnabari yield resin and this is seen in the general small size and shape of these resin tears. This is called “Resin” grade.
One hopes that with the lighter tapping method the D. Cinnabari trees are less stressed than other commercial resin-bearing trees.
I have no provenance on this resin. I can’t say with certainty it is fairly traded and harvested sustainably. However, I hope to rectify this as soon as travel to Yemen opens up again.

    Purchased a few resins on a gamble but I was not disappointed at all. Amazing quality, very fresh, and clean burning. I’ve tried all of them now and it’s hard to pick a favorite – love them all. I will be back for more in the future!

    Maybe there are a bit of dragon's blood because i can see red powder miscible in water, but It is on a big black resin which does not melt and which is only used to make weight, i don't recommand this shop.

    I bought some of the less-refined Dragon's Blood resin to powder and use as an ingredient in an ink, and couldn't be more pleased with it! Like the description says, there are occasional small pieces of bark in this grade of resin, but it all crushed easily in my mortar and ended up making an incredibly rich red ink! It also arrived incredibly quickly – I will definitely be buying from this seller again.
