      Dragon’s Blood Tree (Dracaena cinnabari), only found on the island of Socotra, Yemen. So named because any injury to the bark results in a deep red liquid excreting from the scar – compared in the past to the “Blood of Dragons”. isnt that interesting?

      The tree in these photos is known as the Dragon’s Blood tree and it is a rare type of tree that originates on a small group of four islands in the Indian Ocean. The tree contains a beautiful red sap which is called Dragon’s Blood that has been used as a medicine to treat a variety of ailments and can supposedly increase the potency of witchcraft spells for sexuality, banishing, love, and protection

      Dragon's Blood Tree. Dracaena draco. A monocot, related to Asparagales (Asparagus Order). Its resin, due to its dark red blood-like color, is called Dragon's Blood. The resin is rich in diterpenes (2 terpenes), which are heavier than the aromatic mono- (1) and sesquiterpenes (1.5), but not at all like triterpenes or sterols. It was viewed and described mostly by sailors due to its very limited distribution about Socotra Island.

      DRAGON BLOOD TREE The dragon blood tree is one of the most popular natural wonders growing in and around the Mediterranean region. The tree gives out a deep scarlet colored sap, which is why it is given the peculiar name. The sap is believed to have excellent healing qualities and is used by the locals to cure various diseases and wounds. It is a popular practice to use the gum extracted from the roots of these awe-striking trees in the manufacture of varnishes and toothpastes.
