Mazacoatl Eztli (Dragon's Blood) Use of this herb has conflicting information as some history notes it being used in the 1st century, while others state it began use as a component for health in the 15th century. Mazacoatl Eztli The first word, Mazacoatl in Nahuatl translates to " deer-serpent", while the Mexican academy of language refers to it as “horned snake”, while the Eztli is Aztec meaning blood, thus serpent blood or dragon blood which is a made from Dracaena or Daemonorops, but has also been made from other plants such as Croton or even Pterocarpus. Mazacoatl Eztli is used today mainly for digestive problems, ulcers, diarrhea, and possibly aid in diabetes treatment, though more tests are needed in order to be conclusive in the benefits. Dragon’s Blood is used frequently in wiccan, hoodoo, voodoo, shamanism, and other spiritual rituals. Possible reactions have only been reported with cases of blood thinning, meaning if someone is on blood thinners it would be best not to use it, but no other reports of negative side effects for any other group at this time. Always check with your doctor before putting anything into your body, just to be safe.
