The translation from Socotri is Dragon's Blood, the exudate from Dracaena cinnabari. Collected by families on the island of Socotra, dragon?s blood has a number of medicinal properties, most importantly as a coagulant but also for skin rashes, stomach ailments, and eye problems. The resin clots are powdered and reconstituted with water prior to most uses. We do not recommend this product as a medicine. This product was purchased from families in the countryside of Socotra. Our bags contain an ounce (28 g) of dragon?s blood.
