So I highly recommend having this natural miracle - the material is at hand, God forbid, of course, but it may be necessary.

Svetlana Viktorovna (p. Pankratovo, Nizhny Novgorod region)

My husband tried to treat gastritis with pine resin. The pain actually goes away! I do not know whether it can cure her gastritis completely, but the fact that she relieves pain means a lot. True, we do not buy turpentine, but extract it ourselves, since we live near the forest. And about the purchase, I honestly doubt. All the same, the product must be natural.

Chemical composition

Pine resin, the medicinal properties of which are widely used, incorporates a large number of various nutrients, including vitamins K, D, A, E, C, P, PP, vitamins from group B, iron, carotene, cobalt, manganese, calcium, copper, phosphorus, nickel, vanadium, silicon, zinc, potassium, iodine, molybdenum and others.

Pine resin, the healing properties of the life-giving force of which were discovered in ancient times, was used at the very beginning in insignificant quantities. Then only the amount that nature itself offered to man was used. The situation changed when the industry began to develop.

The first thing that came to be used from pine is pine resin. It was used to tar boats and, later, tackle for ships and wooden ships themselves. To get the resin, it was not the resin that was used, osmol was used more — resinous branches and stumps that stood at the cutting site for more than one year.

The fishery was developed in those areas where pine arrays grew along the riverside. In our country, industrial production of resins began in the early 19th century. During this period, almost every peasant had a peculiar "tar factory". However, the word "plant" was not related to what is meant by it today.

At the beginning of the fishery, the plant was called a semi-dugout, equipped with a firebox, a cube for branches and stumps, and a tray to drain the resin. In the summer, the smol'e was prepared; in the winter, they proceeded directly to distilling the resin. Given the lack of civilization, the work was extremely difficult, but still profitable. During the inevitable colds, the healing properties of pine resin were used.

In spring, the second-hand barrels with the finished resin were collected by the reseller. These barrels were put on rafts and lowered down the rivers to big cities. From cities, the resin was shipped to St. Petersburg and to various shipyards.


Pine zhivitsy harvesting is called tapping. First of all, the bark is removed from a part of the trunk. In a special way, the funnel-shaped receiver is strengthened into which the sap from dissected wood is going. The person who collects bypasses the site and replaces all filled containers. Wounds need to be updated, as the sap hardens.

One tree is usually harvested 1-2 kg of resin, while maintaining the life of the tree. Perennial tapping leads to the weakening of the trees and even their death. The most commonly used trees are intended for felling. Currently in our country there are very few areas in which the extraction of useful resins. Trees simply cut down, not trying to benefit from them.

Modern enterprises are far from the first "factories" for the extraction of resins. However, the principles of processing remain the same. By distillation, dry or using water vapor, turpentine is distilled from the resin. The substance remaining from the gum is called rosin. This substance is transferred for further processing.

In modern life, turpentine is used differently than before. It is mainly used to dissolve paints and varnishes. Not a small part of turpentine is used for the manufacture of medicines. Medicine uses only natural turpentine, obtained by processing the resin.

The most famous application of rosin is rubbing of bows. But in addition, it is necessary for tinning, in the production of plastics, cardboard, rubber, soap, rubber and other products. It is also necessary for the manufacture of medicines.
