Description

DRAGONS BLOOD-Daemonorops draco Blume. Indonesia.
There are approximately 20 different trees around the world that supply a red resin called Dragons Blood.

This is the resin collected from the Rattan palm of Indonesia. Its leaves are used in basketry and the sturdy core is used for furniture making.
The berries of Daemonorops Draco are coated with a thin layer of red resin. When the ripe berries are boiled, the lighter resin floats to the top of the water where it is scooped up and suspended in small cloth pouches to cool, dry and set.
This gives the exported, fist-sized lumps their distinctive shape, Pointed at one end, round at the other.
In some areas, the hard round seeds are used as beads.
This method of resin collection is sustainable and causes no harm to the trees or the environment.

Armed with wicked, needle-sharp spines, the Latin name of Daemonorops literally means Evil Spirit shrub. Though the name may be attributed to the nastiness of the spines, some believe that spirits and energetic beings find a haven in the safety of these spines as they do in brambles, thickets, hedgerows and other environments that keep humans at a safe distance.

The fragrance of this type of Dragons Blood resin is a bit different than the Socotra Dragons Blood. It is softer and sweeter than its counterpart and though it too creates an intense smoke on the charcoal, it is not as penetrating or sharp. In common with Socotra Dragons Blood, this resin has no scent until it is heated or burned.

A pure oleoresin, Indonesian Dragons Blood resin contains no water-soluble gum. This means it melts and pools on the hot incense charcoal and emits no charred fragrance as do most types of Frankincense and Myrrh resins.
Daemonorops Draco dissolves in alcohol like its Socotran counterpart.

    Dragon's Blood isn't my favorite resin incense, but this was really high quality and I enjoyed it. I'm definitely going to buy more.

    This Dragon's Blood is a little surprising as it has a strong note of Damar gum, which I typically enjoy, but not when I'm burning Dragon's Blood. Given the origin, it is not geographically impossible that dammar may be an actual component of this resin. I am not discouraging anyone from trying it, as all resins have their properties and qualities, but it's a hard pass for me. Especially since much better Dragon's Blood (at the very least in my opinion) can be had for less from this very shop.
