Dragon's Blood is a thick red resin that forms from the berries of a tropical climbing palm tree known as daemonorops draco. 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.
