Pine Pitch // body oil


When a pine tree is wounded, it releases a resinous sap (aka pitch) to close and heal the vulnerable area. This pitch not only seals the wound but provides an external immunity and antiseptic shield to prevent infection and microbes from causing further damage. In fact, bees collect Pine Pitch for their own extremely potent and effective immune resin that’s used to seal cracks and gaps.

Pine Pitch offers these same healing abilities to humans as well. A bit of Pine Pitch Oil over a wound or irritated skin will protect, seal, and heal. It’s warming and stimulating, making it a perfect cold-weather body oil. Use to massage stiff joints and aching muscles, dry skin or chapped lips.

The scent is reminiscent of walking through a wet pine forest. A little of this oil placed on pulse points and between the eyes will guide you to this peaceful, grounded state of mind, united with the spirit of old Appalachian forest

Method: This resin is collected from fallen branches in the forest and from tree wounds that have already been sealed and healed. The mix of these two types of resins, older and new, allow for the smell to be balanced and full once emulsified with the oil over a slow, long, warm process.

Contains wildcrafted Pine Resin, raw shea butter, organic sunflower seed oil. 

Avoid using on a very hot spot of skin, as this oil is warming.

The shelf life will be on your bottle - "1-2 years from [date bottled]" the gap in time here is pretty big, but that's because it depends on how it's taken care of. 

Care Tips: keep in a cool place, away from direct sunlight. Do not leave in your car or the freezer, however the fridge will greatly increase the shelf life while providing an extra refreshing spray! Avoid opening the cap often to keep oxygen and contaminates out. Keep somewhere you'll remember to use it!

We suggest using the medicine in 6 months-1yr. Why? We don't use chemical preservatives and plant medicine can degrade over time. Skin care should be treated like food, used fresh and whole. So use it up, #treatyoself!
