Traditionally burned for love, protection, exorcism and sexual potency, Dragon’s Blood is an essential oil with a very strong herbal and spicy fragrance. It is considered to be cleansing and is added in small amounts to Frankincense mixtures and used in churches. It is a deep red, shiny resin, used primarily in incense burning.
When burnt, Dragon’s Blood creates a strong herbal and spicy fragrance. It’s traditionally used in Indian ceremonies to get rid of negative energies and spirits and is regarded as having cleansing properties. It is also calming and some believe it has aphrodisiacal properties, especially if you leave a piece under your mattress.
Heat must be applied to release its fragrance. Dragon’s Blood can be used in incense in stick form or in cones. It can also be found as an essential oil. The Dragon’s Blood resin comes from the fruits of climbing palm trees in areas of tropical Asia. As it seeps out, it’s traditionally collected, cleansed and then melted down to form a hard chunk of resin. The dried resin is believed to be a powerful protectant when carried, sprinkled around the house, or smoldered as incense and has been used to drive evil and negativity away when burned.
