One of the rare items available from the Green Daun new age shop in Malaysia is the Socotra Dragon’s Blood Dracaena Cinnabari resin that is quite difficult to get.

The Dragon’s blood resin from Socotra Island is a bright red colour from the Dracaena Cinnabari species that grows freely here. However, the logistics to get it off the island is one of the main reasons for the high prices.

For knowledge sake, approximately 20 different trees worldwide supply this red resin that is often called Dragons Blood. Some of these trees grow around Asia and others in South America.

The Dragons Blood from the Dracaena Cinnabari tree on the island of Socotra is the original resin traded for thousands of years to the West along with Frankincense and Myrrh through the “Incense Route”.

History of Dragon’s Blood Dracaena Cinnabari

The name Dracaena is derived from the Greek word ‘drakainia‘, meaning a female dragon and Dragon’s blood was also called “Indian cinnabar” by Greek writers and has been used as a powerful health supplement for centuries.

The name “Dragon’s blood” dates back to the 1st century AD when a Greek sailor wrote, about an island called Dioscorida where the trees yielded drops of cinnabar, in a shipping manual “Periplus of the Erythrean Sea”.

In the early days, people in Socotra used resin from Dracaena cinnabari for dying wool, glue pottery, breath freshener, decorating pottery and houses and even lipstick.

It was used as general wound healing, a coagulant, curing diarrhoea, lowering fevers, dysentery diseases, internal ulcers of mouth, throat, intestines and stomach, as an antiviral for respiratory and stomach viruses and skin disorders such as eczema.

Who uses Dragon’s Blood Resins in Malaysia?

This is a tricky question, but there are quite some people who have learned about various types of cleansing techniques, including using Dragon’s Blood resins due to a much higher vibration and energy from the resins.

While it is still a new thing to many people in Malaysia, some of the more seasoned users have been already using these resins for a long time, and it is now that the Green Daun has obtained some of these hard-to-get products.

Some users also burn this resin with other herbs and resins to create a multiplying effect when cleansing. And some even use this resin for manifesting. Please don’t ask us how this is done as you can always search the internet for more information.

Types of Dragon’s Blood Resin Species

There are over 60 species of Dragon’s Blood species, but the two main plant groups that produce the red resin are;

  1. Dracaena
  2. Daemonoropsn

There are fake Dragon’s Blood resins being sold in the market because not many people can tell the difference; hence you should be careful when buying this online, especially if you are not familiar with these resins.

Some sellers even dye cheap frankincense resins, pass them off as Dragon’s Blood resin, and sell them much cheaper. Trust us, as we do a real retail business, we have bought from several sources to test the different ones and experienced even the dyed resins.

Therefore, it is always vital that you visit a proper shop to buy things you are not sure about. With today’s technology, many have become lazy and purchase everything online. And then, do not know how to use the products, resulting in sending messages to the seller, asking how to use them.

So, if you are genuinely interested, we always recommend visiting our retail shop to see the actual product and ask questions before buying.


You can now get Socotra Dragon’s Blood Dracaena Cinnabari resin from our new age shop in Petaling Jaya, Selangor. Alternatively, you can also see if we are selling it in our online shop as this depends on the available stock.

Green Daun also sells Dragon’s Blood candles which are 100% handmade by us and used for meditation and manifestation. You can get them from our walk-in retail shop or from our online shop on Shopee.

When you buy this resin, you must remember that this is a very rare and premium grade dragon’s blood resin and not the commercially available one which is Dracaena Daemonorops that we also sell in our shop.
