Dragon's blood - a powdered pigment or apothecary's grade and roughly crushed incense.
Dragon's blood is a bright red resin that is obtained from different species of a number of distinct plant genera: Croton, Dracaena, Daemonorops, Calamus rotang and Pterocarpus.
The red resin has been in continuous use since ancient times as varnish, medicine, incense, and dye.
Name and source
A great degree of confusion existed for the ancients in regard to the source and identity of dragon's blood. Some medieval encyclopaedias 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 sulfide) were often confused by the ancient Romans. In ancient China, little or no distinction was made among the types of dragon's blood from the different species. Both Dracaena and Daemonorops resins are still often marketed today as dragon's blood, with little or no distinction being made between the plant sources; however, the resin obtained from Daemonorops has become the most commonly sold type in modern times, often in the form of large balls of resin.
In neopagan Witchcraft, it is used to increase the potency of spells for protection, love, banishing and sexuality. In New Age shamanism it is used in ceremonies in a similar way as the neopagans use it.
Dragon's Blood incense is also occasionally sold as "red rock opium" to unsuspecting would-be drug buyers. It actually contains no opiates, and has only slight psychoactive effects, if any at all.
Botanical: Daemomorops Draco
Family: N.O. Palmaceae
Also known as ~ Calamus Draco. Draconis Resina. Sanguis draconis. Dragon's Blood Palm.
Plant part used is the resinous exudation of the fruits.
Dragon's Blood, as known in commerce, has several origins, the substance so named being contributed by widely differing species. Probably the best known is that from Sumatra. Daemomorops Draco formerly known as Calamus Draco, was transferred with many others of the species to Daemomorops, the chief distinguishing mark being the placing of the flowers along the branches instead of their being gathered into catkins, as in those remaining under Calamus.
The long, slender stems of the genus are flexible, and the older trees develop climbing propensities. The leaves have prickly stalks which often grow into long tails and the bark is provided with many hundreds of flattened spines. The berries are about the size of a cherry, and pointed. When ripe they are covered with a reddish, resinous substance which is separated in several ways, the most satisfactory being by steaming, or by shaking or rubbing in coarse, canvas bags. An inferior kind is obtained by boiling the fruits to obtain a decoction after they have undergone the second process.
Common Name: Dragon's Blood
Dracaena draco, the Canary Islands dragon tree or drago, is a subtropical tree-like plant in the genus Dracaena, native to the Canary Islands, Cape Verde, Madeira, and locally in western Morocco, and introduced to the Azores. Dragon's blood is an evergreen climbing palm producing a cluster of unbranched stems up to 15 metres long that climb into the surrounding vegetation.
The plant is harvested from the wild for its resin, medicinal uses and to supply material for basket making. This is probably the main species supplying the resin, though several others are also a source of it. The resin is sold in local markets and sometimes traded internationally.
