Re: healing with turpentine
turpentine should be nothing but essential oil of pine trees----PERIOD
Because too many poor people used this--those that make them selves in charge of all the slaves decided to ad poison to turpentine LONG AGO so it could only be used for paint and the such----then wealthy oil painting artist said this poison messed up their paintings, so none poisoned turpentine was permitted as long as you paid 10x what it was worth, so only the wealthy artist could afford it.
there is at least 1 source that still makes the real deal-----that stuff last a LONG TIME. I purchased a lifetime supply a long time ago of their turpentine and their pine sap.
Turpentine is made from the pine sap.
Pine Sap is the stickiest glue on the earth.
THEY make endless commercial products out of pine sap.
The most historical herbal elixir / skin rub that every AMERICAN knew about from 1840's through world war 1 and the army used on all those world war 1 horses-----that formula uses some turpentine-----STRONG STUFF that formula is---I CALL MY VERSION-----WAR HORSE, because the humans of today can not handle such herbal formulas.
Otherwise poor folk used turpentine by putting drops on a sugar cube and giving to the ill children. IT IS JUST ESSENTIAL OIL of a PINE TREE
I knew a coon hunter in kentuck and his dogs were always being bitten by rattlers---he said he soaked rags in turpentine and then soaked his dog snake bites.
I have and probably never will take turpentine internally, there is zero use to---"IF" you have any number of 30+ other essential oils from plants.
The Burning Bush is 100% harmless and cures all that can be cured by plants----BUT the PINE TREE is AMERICAN and we americans I guess should use the PINE TREE, but I have lifetimes of the burning bush, cayenne, garlic, etc., etc. etc. and YUP, I have about 20x time lifetime supply of pine sap/turpentine---so I am good
