Dragon's Blood is a thick red resin that forms from the berries of a tropical climbing palm tree known as daemonorops draco. Stillpoint's Wild harvest Dragon's Blood is imported from. sacred palm trees of Indonesia.
The fruit of these Asian palm trees is covered in scales from which a bright red shiny resin seeps out - which looks a bit like blood coming out from a cut (or a scaly dragon's hide). As it seeps out, it's traditionally collected, cleansed and then melted down to form a hard chunk of resin.
Dragons Blood has been used for thousands of years in India as part of their rituals. It is also mixed with Frankincense in some orthodox church incense recipes. When burnt, Dragon's Blood creates a strong herbal and spicy fragrance.
Dragon's Blood resin is still commonly used in Magical spellwork to add power to enhance rituals and strengthen manifestation power in all spells, I like to think of it as a turbo booster for any intention put forth in prayer or rituals. Dragon’s Blood is a powerful booster to anything you put out into the universe.
Back in the day the "bleeding sap" was used to make a paste to help heal wounds and protect an individual from infections. Basically it was a 'natural bandaid' for the skin. So in the 3d as well as the ethers, Dragon's Blood is a protector.
About Stillpoint Resins: Did you know that even resins are prone to adulteration? Yes, they can be!!! The way resins are adulterated is by the addition of plastic! Here at Stillpoint we only source the purest resins available that are ethically harvested or wild harvested. When a resin is wild harvested that means the resin has not been manually removed from the tree, but has fallen off after a wild animal has brushed up against the tree. Our resins are organic and/or wild harvested and are of the highest vibration.
How to Burn Resins: Light the charcoal with matches or lighter for about 20 seconds until it self-ignites. Use tongs to hold it up (never hold it with your fingers alone or you might get burned). Place the lit charcoal in a bowl or any incense burner. The bowl or incense burner should be filled with sand or dirt. Let the charcoal warm for a few minutes. (It turns gray around the edges when it is ready) Now you are ready! Add a small amount of resin on top of the charcoal. The resin will burn and soon release essential, aromatic oils through the smoke. Continue to place resins or powder on charcoal as they burn out and smoke decreases for a continuous burn.
