Those that are squeamish about applying strong chemicals and medications such as iodine or alcohol will appreciate this first aid liniment: It’s distilled from the resinous wood of the Long Leaf Pine tree native to North Carolina. This natural healing solution was first discovered in 1906, when a steam pipe burst and injured three workmen in a turpentine plant in Wilmington, North Carolina. Stumbling out of the steam-filled building, one of these men fell into a pit of Long Leaf Pine oil, a residue that was discarded during the turpentine-distilling process. The man recovered from his burns quickly with little pain and scarring, while his coworkers suffered severe ailments for many weeks. Throughout the years, scientific studies and user testimonials have shown the liniment to be effective in killing germs, stopping bleeding and alleviating pain. When vaporized, the solution may soothe asthma, coughing and other respiratory discomforts.
Use as a rub to treat muscle and back pain, cuts and scrapes, minor burns, sunburn, insect bites and bruises. As always, consult a doctor if condition does not improve or worsens. Apply freely and massage well several times a day to sore muscles and swollen joints. For all other treatments apply to affected area 2-3 times daily. To vaporize, add one tablespoon of liniment to a pot of water. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to steam. The liniment can also be used to treat animal ailments. Apply to animal coat to heal cuts and sores, or as a flea and tick treatment. Consult your veterinarian before use.
More than 50 years ago, James Sistrunk of Wilmington, North Carolina, worked his way up through the company and purchased the rights to the liniment's secret formula and patented distillation process after the founder passed away. His sons' wives now continue to run the small family business, where a total of four employees are responsible for packing and distribution.
FDA approved liniment to kill germs, stop bleeding and reduce pain. Vaporize to alleviate respiratory issues, coughing and allergies. Naturally distilled since 1906 from the oil of Long Leaf Pine Trees native to North Carolina. 4 oz. (more info)
