The Croton lechleri bleeds to save you from cuts, bacteria, acne, wrinkles, and receding gums. At least if you believe the loooong list of indications that come with each bottle of Dragon's Blood. Dragon's Blood is a striking red resin or sap obtainable from a few different plant species that has long been used in traditional Chinese medicine as an anti-fungal, anti-microbial, anti-bacterial treatment for everything from open wounds and bites to GI issues. This bottled version contains 100% raw Croton lechleri tree sap.

Reviews of the product are very positive, particularly reports of using Dragon's Blood as a natural remedy for cuts and scrapes, and for oral health. Some say it heals wounds 4 times faster, though faster than what, I'm not sure. Manmade antibiotics? The body on its own? Mayonnaise? And those who brush or swish with it report hyper-clean teeth and much healthier gums.

Confession: I bought some Dragon's Blood a few weeks ago. Because my dentist keeps telling me I brush too hard and am F'ing up my gums. I thought this might be a way to repair them without changing my behavior. But I'll never know because what Dragon's Blood tastes like is Dragon's Poison Stomach Bile. I was able to put that foulness in my mouth exactly one time. Holy crap is it awful. Other people complain about the smell, but the bottle I got smells like nothing. And tastes like karma for every wrong I've ever committed in my whole life.

So now my girlfriend mixes it in with her moisturizer and lathers it on her face to tighten her skin and fight wrinkles. I'll let you know in 10 years how that worked out.

I will say one cool thing about the sap itself is that it comes out of the bottle exactly as you see in the photos. Red and runny. But if you squeeze a few drops into your palm and then swirl it around with your finger it lightens to a white-gray color and also thickens into a paste that makes it very easy, and not messy, to apply to mosquito bites or cat scratches or eczema.

More issues and maladies they say Dragon's Blood can alleviate, combat, or support:

  • Hemorrhoids
  • Athlete's foot and other fungal infections
  • Herpes outbreaks
  • Scarring
  • Digestion (when ingested)
  • Diarrhea (when ingested)
  • Protect bodily organs from external radiation (when ingested)
