Croton lechleri is a species of flowering plant in the spurge family, Euphorbiaceae, that is native to northwestern South America, where it is knows as Sangre de Grado~ "Blood of the Dragon". **
The main plant chemicals in sangre de grado include: alpha-calacorene, alpha-copaene, alpha-pinene, alpha-thujene, beta-caryophyllene, beta-elemene, beta-pinene, betaine, bincatriol, borneol, calamenene, camphene, catechins, cedrucine, crolechinic acid, cuparophenol, D-limonene, daucosterol, dihydrobenzofuran, dimethylcedrusine, dipentene, eugenol, euparophenol, gallocatechin, gamma-terpinene, gamma-terpineol, hardwickiic acid, isoboldine, korberin A & B, lignin, linalool, magnoflorine, methylthymol, myrcene, norisoboldine, p-cymene, proanthocyanidins, procyanidins, resin, tannin, taspine, terpinen-4-ol, and vanillin.
Sangre de grado's red latex (and also its bark) has a long history of indigenous use in the rainforest and in South America. The earliest written reference dates its use to the 1600s, when Spanish naturalist and explorer P. Bernabé Cobo found that the curative power of the sap was widely known throughout the indigenous tribes of Mexico, Peru, and Ecuador.
Sangre de grado is used in traditional medicine in South America today in much the same manner as indigenous ones. In Peruvian herbal medicine it is recommended for hemorrhaging, as an antiseptic vaginal douche and, topically, for healing wounds. It is also used internally for ulcers in the mouth, throat, intestines and stomach; as an antiviral for upper respiratory viruses, stomach viruses and HIV; internally and externally for cancer and, topically, for skin disorders, insect bites and stings. In Brazilian traditional medicine the sap currently is used for wounds, hemorrhaging, diarrhea, mouth ulcers, and as a general tonic.

SANGRE de GRADO benefits and guidlines
Welcome to the fascinating world of Sangre de Grado at Casa del Colibri, where we unravel the versatility of this extraordinary plant medicine from nature’s pharmacopeia. Sourced from the red latex of the towering Croton Lechleri tree, Sangre de Grado boasts incredible healing compounds, including thaspine, currently under research for its potential as a cancer drug.
This botanical marvel, often mistakenly labeled as Sangre de Drago (Dragons Blood), stands as one of the most potent antioxidants, addressing a spectrum of health concerns. The Oligomeric Proanthocyanidins within Sangre de Grado have been employed in treating diarrhea in HIV patients, leading to the FDA approval of Mytesi in 2013, a testament to the plant's medicinal prowess.
Beyond its physical healing properties, Sangre de Grado acts on an energetic level, chasing out negative energies and providing sublime spiritual protection. It's not just a remedy; it's a liquid bandage with coagulant properties, forming a scab-like cover over wounds due to its antiseptic qualities. This process, on an energetic level, helps empower the healing abilities of its users.
Prior to sacred ceremonies, Sangre de Grado is sometimes used as a purgative to chase out impurities. Its vibrant green, heart-shaped leaves symbolize its capacity to heal the heart and offer protection from the elements. However, it's crucial to distinguish Sangre de Grado from other tinctures like Dragon’s Blood, which may share a name but differ significantly in properties. (Croton lechleri I'd commonly confused with Dracaena cinnabari.
THEY ARE NOT THE SAME!)
In addition to its external uses, Sangre de Grado works internally to heal conditions such as IBS, Leaky Gut, ulcers, yeast infections, hemorrhoids, and even cancer.
Taking 10-15 drops, suspended in warm water, orally daily demonstrates significant healing properties over weeks, while a Sangre de Grado purgative acts swiftly, rapidly restoring the body within a few sessions. Sangre de Grado is also a great tool for optimal oral health.
***Guidelines for a Sangre De Grado purgative:
Conduct this cleansing ritual on an empty stomach by ingesting 2-4 oz of Sangre De Grado. Within two minutes, commence rapid water consumption, aiming to drink a gallon or more swiftly. Expect a sensation of nausea and subsequent purging, characterized by red fluid with a white foam.
Persist in drinking water until the subsequent purges occur, repeating this process until the expelled fluid runs clear. Typically, this thorough purification requires approximately one gallon of water. Originating from the Shapibo tribe, this cleanse is designed to be completed in a remarkably short timeframe, spanning 10-20 minutes. Remarkably accessible when done independently, prioritize your well-being by ensuring an ample and swift intake of water throughout this transformative ritual.
**Guidelines for Topical Use:
Accelerate the natural scab formation over cuts and scrapes with Sangre de Grado. Begin by thoroughly cleaning the affected area with water. In your palm, dilute 10 drops of Sangre de Grado and activate the latex by rubbing in a circular motion until the red liquid transforms into a white foam. Swiftly apply a thick layer of Sangre de Grado, and if the abrasion persists, wipe off the resin and reapply until bleeding is staunched. Repeat this process 2-3 times per day until a scab forms, noting that scabs may appear darker when using the resin – this is normal.
For Kambo gate sites, follow the same guidelines for topical use to aid in a quicker resolution.
To alleviate itching from bug bites, apply a very thin layer of Sangre de Grado as needed. Monitor the healing progress of any abrasion and seek medical attention if you observe new redness, swelling, or pain. Prioritize your well-being during the healing journey.
**Guidelines for Oral Health Use:
Harness the centuries-old wisdom of Dragon’s Blood for dental well-being. Traditionally employed to address teeth sensitivities and gum recession, this natural remedy has stood the test of time.
For those integrating Dragon’s Blood into their oral health regimen, the typical approach involves swishing the serum to alleviate bleeding gums and sensitivity. Alternatively, one can create a paste-like texture by rubbing the serum in the palm or between fingers, facilitating targeted application to specific areas of the gingiva. The Dragon’s Blood, akin to clay, forms a protective seal or "band-aid," leveraging its antibacterial properties to aid with sensitivity. Embrace this natural solution for comprehensive oral well-being.

There's a rich heritage of Sangre de Grado, where its red sap and bark boast an extensive history of indigenous use in the Amazon rainforest and South America. Dating back to the 1600s, Spanish naturalist P. Bernabé Cobo documented its widespread use among indigenous tribes in Mexico, Peru, and Ecuador for curative purposes. The sap, revered for its ability to staunch bleeding, expedite healing, and form a protective barrier against infection, has been an integral part of external applications for wounds, fractures, and hemorrhoids. Internally, it addresses intestinal and stomach ulcers, and as a douche, aids in managing vaginal discharge. Indigenous uses extend to treating intestinal fevers, inflamed or infected gums, post-childbirth hemorrhaging, and various skin disorders.
Contemporary South American herbal medicine echoes these traditions, utilizing Sangre de Grado resin and bark for hemorrhaging, antiseptic vaginal douches, and topical wound healing. Internally, it addresses ulcers in the mouth, throat, intestines, and stomach, acts as an antiviral for respiratory and stomach viruses, and provides support for cancer treatment. In Brazilian traditional medicine, the sap finds application in wound care, hemorrhaging, diarrhea, mouth ulcers, and as a general tonic.
The plethora of plant chemicals found in Sangre de Grado includes proanthocyanidins, simple phenols, diterpenes, phytosterols, alkaloids, and lignans. Notably, taspine and dimethylcedrusine are considered active constituents, contributing to the sap's wound-healing capacity. Taspine, with documented anti-inflammatory, antitumorous, and antiviral properties, was first explored in 1979. The synergy of these components, as noted by Dr. James Duke, amplifies the overall healing efficacy of Sangre de Grado.
Beyond traditional applications, scientific studies highlight its effectiveness in alleviating itching, pain, discomfort, swelling, and redness in response to insect bites, cuts, and allergic plant reactions. Sangre de Grado demonstrates broad-acting pain-killing properties, blocking pain signals to the brain and inhibiting tissue responses that promote inflammation. For external use, apply the resin directly to the affected area, allowing it to dry. For internal use, the traditional remedy involves consuming 10-15 drops in a small amount of warm water 1-3 times daily, bearing in mind its strong taste. To clear you energetic field, engae in a Sange de Grado purge. Embrace the authenticity and efficacy of Casa del Colibri Sangre de Grado, a botanical treasure rooted in centuries of indigenous wisdom.
