Dragons blood oil is an herbal mixture that has been used for centuries to heal a variety of ailments. The red resin obtained from the Dracaena draco plant is what gives this oil its characteristic color and also provides many of its healing properties. This post will show you how to make dragons blood oil, as well as talk about some of the benefits that it can provide for people with different health conditions.
One of the first things to know about dragon blood oil is that it’s actually not an oil at all. It’s a resin, meaning that it comes in solid form and you need to heat it up so that you can use it. In this post, we’ll show how to make your own batch in just five easy steps!
Ingredients You Need to Make Dragons Blood Oil
- Red dragon’s blood resin
- Olive oil
- Lemon zest (optional)
- An earthenware pot with a lid
- A grater or cheesecloth to strain the mixture
Steps on How to Make Dragons Blood Oil
Step One: Heat up the Dragon’s Blood Resin
This is a crucial step because you need to heat it before using it. Place the solid resin in some sort of container and put it into an oven at 300°F for 15 minutes. The best thing about this process is that as the sap heats up, its healing properties are released which will provide a much more potent product when finished. After heating, allow your dragon’s blood oil to cool down so that you can start making other preparations with it!
Mix It Up With Olive Oil Once your Dragons’ Blood Resin has cooled off sufficiently enough to work with, mix it with olive oil. The percentage of how much each ingredient you use depends on what kind of consistency and texture you want the oil to have after it’s done simmering away in a pan for an hour or two.
Simmer Away Once your Dragons’ Blood Resin has been mixed into some sort of container full of olive oil, it is time to pour them both into a saucepan at medium-low heat until they reach boiling point (it should be around 160°F). Stir occasionally while waiting for this concoction to cook because if not stirred, the mixture will burn and leave behind sticky black residue once finished cooking which may ruin the taste and appearance altogether.
Let It Cool Once the liquid has reached the desired point, it is time to take the pan off of the heat and let it cool for 20 minutes or so. Once cooled enough, strain out any leftover plant bits that may have escaped while simmering away in a colander.
Bottle It Up! After pouring through your strainer one last time into another container (make sure you’ve got some cloth over top).
In lieu of using a lot of olive oil, feel free to cut back how much you’re adding by half if not more depending on how much time you might want to spend stirring the mixture.
You can always add a few drops of honey, cinnamon stick or clove for an even stronger flavor!
