Dracaena draco is known as dragon tree because it was once believed that the red resin exuded by from the trunk and leaves was actually dragon’s blood (see link below for folklore). The term is still used to refer to this sap, which has a variety of uses. Dragon tree is an ancient plant native to the canary islands where locals used the tree’s resin for mumification and hair dye. It has modern applications as a pigment in the varnish and paper industries. The resin of this species is aromatic and is said to be much higher quality than that of other relatyed species of trees used for so-called dragon’s blood. The aromatic resin is used to make the well-known dragon’s blood incense. The sap also has several medicinal applications including that it is used to heal wounds.
