This Scarlet Resin is a resin that is deep blood red in color extracted from trees in South American, Amazonian Rainforest. We dislike the name Dragon’s Blood which is a silly name for this resin. We like to claim what G-d has created for healing is to be understood as such. We give to G-d what he has created. This Red sap and Tree symbolizes strength, protection, covering, warm healing, and purification fire. Most likely this red tree sap was used to create the scarlet dye in garments in the middle east. This tree can grow both in tropical and desert climates.
Rahab may have used this resin to dye her scarf red that hung outside her window as a signal for Caleb and Joshua to save her as they had promised. There is a midrash that says that it was from a tree a red sap was used to dye the garments red which was used in the Temple. Because this resin sap can turn white when rubbed to apply to stop a bleed and clean the wound we are reminded of the texts that say “sin is scarlet, but will be made white as snow.”
Bible texts of Inspiration:
“Come now, and let us reason together,”
Says the L-rd,
“Though your sins are as scarlet,
They will be as white as snow;
Though they are red like crimson,
They will be like wool.
The blessing we read over the Mother of the home who is called Eshet Chayil (Woman of G-d a Woman of Valor) we read:
She is not afraid of the snow for her household,
For all her household are clothed with scarlet.

Croton Lechleri is a potent elixir for the skin.Know by other names such as Sangre de Grado (Red blood in Espanol), Sangre de Drago (blood of a dragon in Espanol), Scarlet Resin, and Red Calamus sap. This sap has a long history of therapeutic use in South America and parts of the Mediterranean. Its sap, resin, and bark all have a history of use but it is the sap and resin that has been most commonly referred to when talking about the therapeutic benefits.
Traditionally used internally and externally to stop bleeding, promote the recovery of wounds, treat infections, and intestinal issues. Taspine is documented as being a component that is antiviral and promotes wound healing properties. The proanthocyanidins in this oil have been shown to promote collagen regeneration. Some preparations have been made and pharmaceutically patented using the proanthocyanidin polymer from croton species (SP-303) as an anti-diarrheal. It has been clinically used to aid stomach ulcers, ulcerative colitis, and Crohn’s disease with a degree of success.
Using the concept of the doctrine of signatures, realizing that the blood-like sap from a wounded tree can assist in the healing of our own wounds makes sense. This scarlet oil is used as a potent natural dye for art including painting & staining clothing in the Amazon. True Croton Lechleri will foam up white color when rubbed into the hands for about 30 seconds and becomes “activated” to be applied to the wound region.
