Description

After repeated requests from customers, here is my version of the classic “Dragon’s Blood Ink”.
It is deep blood-red and permanent, so don’t splash any on your clothes!

Dragon’s Blood Ink is traditionally used to empower and charge ceremonial, religious and magical scripts.
It is thought to help focus, amplify and anchor one’s magical intent adding permanence and power.

There are a few different types of Dragon’s Blood resin. This ink is made with “Medieval” dragon’s Blood resin, (Dracaena Cinnabari), which was used in Medieval Europe.

I felt this creation needed an aroma that suited its use, (since Dragon’s Blood resin has no fragrance unless it is burned). I enhanced it with real Saffron, Rose Absolute and Oud essential oil to give it an aromatic weight that matched its colour and purpose.

You can make your own Dragon’s Blood ink using the Dragons Blood resin listed in the shop-here-https://www.etsy.com/listing/569548431/dragons-blood-pure-resin-island-of

A good basic formula is 1 part Dragon’s Blood powder to 10 parts Dragon’s Blood powder. Some formulas call for the addition of Gum Arabic but I don’t believe it is needed when using 95% alcohol which was not readily available in the distant past.

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 over a thousand 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 Pharmacopeia through the ages. This has lent this resin the nickname “Medieval” Dragons Blood.

    Lovely ink,highly recommended.
    Just do not use it with a glass quill. The ink dries fast,and it stays in the grooves of the glass. Therefore making it quite hard to write. I will try it with a regular quill and i think it will work fine 🙂

    I bought this for a friend to use for sacred writing and was therefore surprised with how well it actually writes! It flows evenly, feathers well, and dries fairly quickly. And on top of all that, it looks and smells wonderful! I hope this will always be available, as I know I’ll be needing more!

    Gorgeous and smells lovely, along with a timely delivery. The color really looks like blood!

    It's a shame it doesn't work with my glass dip pen, but I can try other things, so I'm not hung up over it.

    This is a superb ink, smells gorgeous. Doesn't really work well with the fountain pen, which is logical. Otherwise writes very well. Was shipped very quickly and delivery was super fast. High quality product. Many more from this shop are on the list 🙂

    I was sent the wrong item by the seller. I requested ambergris. The seller included the wrong item and refused to refund me. I had to open a case with Etsy and go back-and-forth for over a week before the seller agree that it was unethical to ask the customer to send an item back that was sent in error and pay for their mistake. Finally the seller did refund the purchase. However the damage has been done and I view this as an awful business.

    Great quality ink, but definitely not great for glass pens. The resin gets caught in the grooves, I'm still trying to clean them out! That was user error though, and I can say the ink works great for what I need!

    Beautiful! I've always wanted to learn to make inks like this. Perhaps I will be inspired in the new year to experiment. In the meantime, I use this gorgeous offering. Thank you!
