Alien Trees

On Socotra Island near Yemen, you will find 700 extremely rare species of flora and fauna that you can't find anywhere else on earth. One of them is the Dracena Cinnibaris or Dragon's Blood Tree. It is a valuable source of resin for varnishes and dyes, as well as a "cure-all" medicine used in medieval ritual magic.
