Have you heard of Dragon's Blood before? No, there's no need to frown! Nothing gets killed in GoT style.
Dragon's blood extract is a natural substance used for centuries in traditional Chinese and Indian medicine for its healing properties.
More specifically,it is a resin obtained from the bark of some Amazonian plants, including Daemonorops, Dracaena, Croton, Calamus and Pterocarpus, whose resins all have the characteristic red-brown colour. They are odourless or with a slightly balsamic aroma, have a sweetish taste and are soluble in ethyl alcohol.
The tree from which it derives seems to have come out of a book of magic. This is in fact, found only in the Socotra archipelago, in the Indian Ocean, and its thick and dense frond has a shape that recalls that of an umbrella, which appears majestic is magnificent. Furthermore, its trunk does not have the typical concentric rings used to date a shrub's age. Thus the age of a Dragon's Blood is estimated only by the number of its many branches.
