This Amazonian skin healer, known as Sangre de Drago or Dragon's Blood, is sourced from the precious resin produced by the Croton Lechleri tree. Sangre de Drago is a true panacea for the skin, offering reprieve & repair for a range for common maladies.
Help the skin form a natural scab more quickly over cuts & scrapes. Clean the affected area well and dab on a thick layer of Sangre. If the abrasion continues to bleed, the resin can be wiped off and reapplied until staunched. Reapply 2-3 times per day until a scab has formed, then switch to the Solve All Salve to encourage skin repair. Note that scabs may appear darker when using the the resin ~ this is normal. As with any abrasion, make sure the healing progresses and seek medical help if you notice any new redness, swelling or pain.
Sangre de Drago can be used on zits that have come to a head in order to help them resolve more quickly. Wash the area with mild soap and apply a very thin layer before going to bed; let dry and leave on overnight. Wash off remaining resin the the morning.
To relieve itching from bug bites, apply a very thin layer as needed. For an elixir designed specifically for insect bites, see the Sting Zinger.
