Dragonsblood resin from SocotraDragon's Blood Resin From Socotra & Sumatra
Dracaena species
It's no surprise that the dark red resin of the berries of the rattan palm tree is of Mars. This Fire resin was formerly an aid to stop bleeding (nice Mars connection there). It's often used as a kind of potentiator for any magickal work and is excellent for the traditional Mars task of protection. The price of good quality dragon's blood has risen unbelievably in the past few months, to the point where some of it has priced itself out of the market. My high quality dragon's blood resin is a deep full blood red and makes a beautiful ink--and with much less resin, too. Generally, because of the higher quality, you will find that this premium dragonsblood goes much farther than the rough dragonsblood commonly available. Like all dragon's blood, it has no smell raw, although I have been told it does have a nice smell when tinctured in alcohol (keep in mind, though, that this is a substantive dye, so it will stain). Upon heating, it melts and turns black, gives off less smoke than the inexpensive stuff, and has a lighter, more fruity and less resinous smell. If you want to make your own dragonsblood incense, this is a vital component; 10g can color about 4 oz. of incense material either purple or deep scarlet, depending on whether it is Sumatran or Socotran. Please let me know if you notice any differences magically between the two.
