Dragon Blood Resin from Socotra Island Yemen

- Dracaena Cinnabari tree-

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 thousands of 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 Pharmacopoeias through the ages. This has lent this resin the nickname "Medieval" Dragons Blood.

The chemical composition of the different Dragons Blood resins varies as do their traditional therapeutic applications in local folk medicine. The Dragons Blood of D. Cinnabari from Socotra is used in traditional medicine. 

Its scent is deep. Rich. Sensuous. A dark deep Amber with a smooth warm nuttiness that is both calming and stimulating. It delivers hints of Red Sea breezes and perfumed summer nights. A mixed aroma, a bit like the aftertaste of soft benzoin essential oil and musk. It does not have the coolness of Kirin Blood. The main tone is more obvious sticky warmth, with a little sweetness of starch and stone fruit heating, which remains in the space after burning. Only a little bit of this resin is needed to transform a space.
