Dragon's Blood Oil:
Dragon's blood oil is good for protection and empowerment and is especially helpful for defense on the astral plane. Like any sword, it has two sides; it can be used in offense as well as defense. On the other hand, some folks work love magick with dragon's blood oil--its red color amplifies the passion of a work and its Mars association increases the power. This magick oil is made by steeping the best refined Chinese dragon's blood resin in safflower oil. Like the dragon's blood palm itself, safflower is a Mars plant (and even contains the Mars metal, iron), so the power of this oil is doubled. In addition, the oil is scented with opoponax, a Mars/Pluto resin that is especially effective for protection as well as for acquiring the kind of knowledge one might wish to gain on the astral plane. It's also nicely fragrant. Dragon's blood resin is a colorant, so this oil can stain clothes. Because this is made from resins instead of essential oils, it will settle out after it sits for a while, so shake thoroughly before using. Store in a cool, dark place.

Dragons Blood Cosmetic Uses
Dragon’s blood is a fairly modern addition to Western skin care products, and it offers a host of benefits – including the ability to help fight acne, since it looks after the inflammation, discomfort and appearance of the skin.
The Cosmetic application property of Dragon's Blood and its mechanism works can be briefly explained below:
There are various well-documented benefits for using Dragon's blood in skin care preparations, and it is for this reason why Dragon's blood has been included as one of the active components of many Problem Skin products.
It should be kept in mind that a problem, or acne-riddled skin is in a state of inflammation - and to heal the skin a person needs to look at sorting out the inflammation.
The therapeutic properties of Dragon's blood includes the following: anesthetic, anti-allergic, anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, anti-dysenteric, antifungal, anti-hemorrhagic (reduce bleeding), anti-leukemia, antioxidant, antiseptic, anti-tumor, antiviral, neurasthenic (reduce nerve pain) and wound healer and also includes analgesic (pain-reliever), anti-cancerous, anti-itch, anti-ulcerous and astringent properties.
From the above it must be clear why this natural "wonder" ingredient has been included in our acne fighting products, as it has wonderfully anti-inflammatory qualities and has been proven to stimulate human skin fibroblast - which in turns help to heal the skin.
It also has a protective action on the skin and coupled to the wonderful anti-bacterial properties makes it a natural to be included in a product to fight acne.
Not withstanding the anti-bacterial effect on the skin, it also exhibits powerful anti-viral properties.
Apart from all these very positive qualities, Dragon's blood also has very good anti-oxidant properties which also help to protect the DNA in the skin cell, which protects the skin from genetic alteration.
It also has a protective effect on the skin as it protects the skin from oxidative free radicals.
Another problem experienced by people suffering from problem or acne skin is the discomfort, pain and itching of the skin on a continual basis - and here dragon's blood helps to relieve the pain, itching, swelling and discomfort of the skin.
