Research well before purchasing and using this incredible product.

"Dragon's blood is a chock-full storehouse of phytochemicals including proanthocyanidins (antioxidants), diterpenes, phytosterols, simple phenols, and biologically active alkaloids and lignans. The most well-known active components in dragon's blood are an alkaloid named apsine and a lignan named dimethylcedrusine. Tapsine has been documented to have anti-inflammatory and wound-healing actions, and when combined with the proanthocyanidins, also shows anti-viral activities.

Externally, the unique properties of dragon's blood make it an excellent addition to cosmetic applications targeting protection, anti-aging, and general wellness of skin. Because of its anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial effects, dragon's blood plays a starring role as one of the active ingredients in Dermaxime's Problem Skin Range. Its appearance in mainstream American cosmetics, however, is relatively rare. As an alternative, pure dragon's blood can be purchased for concocting your own potions at home." - Truth In Aging

"More recently, several scientific tests have been conducted on a proprietary sangre de grado product (made into a skin balm) which was also based on traditional uses. They reported that in pest control workers, a sangre de grado balm was preferred over placebo, for the relief of itching, pain, discomfort, swelling, and redness in response to wasps, fire ants, mosquitoes, bees, cuts, abrasions, and allergic plant reactions (poison ivy and others)." - Raintree - Tropical Plant Database

BIOLOGY:

Harvest: The extraction of the latex should be carried out without knocking down the tree, with the shiringuero method, by means of the spiral cut or the V-shaped cut, on the bark of the shaft at chest height. With the spiral cut practiced in the sense of left to right, a greater performance of latex is achieved. The factors that influence the performance of latex are: solar radiation, diameter of the tree, foliage, angle of cut, precipitation and moon phase, being the most convenient between crescent and full moon. The yield of latex in a morning in flood zones and rainy season, was 250 cc in trees of 35 cm in diameter and 2 000 cc in trees of 50 cm in diameter. In Ucayali, flowering occurs from June to August, fruiting in September. It is considered that the plantation achieves economically profitable yields from the eighth year of sowingght of 2 m (6' 6"), with alternate, heart shaped, serrated leaves, 10 to 12 cm long (4"-4.7") and 8 to 10 cm (3.1-3.9") wide, that have petioles 2–6 cm (0.8-2.3") long. It flowers five months after being planted, and bears seeds around the eighth month. The male flowers are small, white, and arranged in clusters. Two female flowers are located at the base of the inflorescence. In tropical locations it is often a vine requiring support and producing seeds nearly year-round.

My oils and butters are are wild harvested, grown naturally in the Brazilian and Peruvian Amazon Rainforest without any pesticides, they are fair traded and sustainable resources.
