Though we make NO medical claims, here is a lotion bar every home should have. This lotion bar is made up of 25% pine tar. Also includes shea butter and cocoa butter. Pine tar can help slow the rapid growth of skin cells and restore the skin’s appearance. In addition, it can help reduce the inflammation, itching and scaling of psoriasis. Pine tar has a very distinct smell. The use of pine tar ointment as an antibacterial to treat wounds dates back centuries. There is nominal evidence that ancient civilizations of the Near East and Sumeria used pine oils and ointments to cleanse wounds and prevent gangrene. In fact, in lieu of bathing, pine tar and its derivatives can be used to keep the skin and hair clean and free of parasites, including fleas. This is one reason tins of pine tar ointment are sought after by outdoor enthusiasts and long-distance athletes. Comes in a container like deodorant so it makes applying so easy and care free.
