Dragon's blood resin comes from various species of trees native to the East Indies, Canary Islands and South America. The resinous "tears" collected from these trees have been in commercial trade since the time of the ancient Romans.

The primary modern use of dragon's blood resin is to burn it as incense, which quickly reveals the reason for its name — the red, blistering bubbles that appear as the substance heats up resemble boiling blood.

The name “dragon’s blood” refers to the deep, crimson color of the resinous gum of a tree native to Morocco and the Canary Islands. Aside from the color, it is said that the resin blisters and oozes red when subjected to heat, giving the appearance of boiling blood.

There is documented evidence that this resin was used for various purposes by the ancient Romans and Greeks. Eventually, but not until the 16th century, dragon’s blood made its way from the Mediterranean to India, Africa and Europe via the Incense Road of Antiquity, along which many spices, textiles and other commodities also travelled to world markets.
