Dragon blood oil is produced from the resin of the Croton lechleri tree by a process of filtration. The tree has been used traditionally in South America for wound healing and protection. The oil is dark red in colour and has a deep, sweet but slightly salty/savoury aroma. Because of its skin healing effects this oil is particularly prized for use in skincare preparations. The tree is considered threatened, not directly because of mankind, but because of goats which eat the seedlings, and rats that eat the seeds.Botanical Name: Croton lechleri
