"Dragon Blood can be used as an ingredient in potion brewing."

Dragon blood is the blood of any of the many species of dragon. It has a number of magical properties and is fairly expensive to buy bottled. It has twelve uses, the discoveries of which are typically all credited to the famous Hogwarts headmaster, Albus Dumbledore,[1] although Ivor Dillonsby claimed that he had already discovered eight of them and that Dumbledore "borrowed" his notes.[2]

Dragon blood seems to have a notable taste, as Dumbledore was able to distinguish it from human blood by placing a small amount in his mouth in 1996. He was, however, the foremost expert on the substance, and the distinction may have been too subtle for anybody else.[3]
