Dragon's blood is a natural resin derived from several plant species, such as the Dracaena, Daemonorops, Croton, and Pterocarpus. It's important to clarify that dragon's blood is not a typical oil, so it doesn't contain fatty acids in the same way seed or nut oils do. However, it is rich in protective, healing, and rejuvenating compounds. And when infused into a carrier oil, all the nutrients and beneficial compounds become available making dragon's blood a brilliant skincare ingredient.
