Use & Care

Respiratory Protection: Pine resin can form dust particles. If inhaled, it may cause respiratory issues. Always use appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE) such as masks or respirators when handling the resin to prevent inhalation.

Handling: Ensure good ventilation in the area where the pine resin is being used. If the resin comes in contact with skin, wash thoroughly with soap and water.

Storage: Keep the resin in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight and heat sources to prevent it from melting or catching fire. Ensure the container is tightly closed to avoid dust formation.

Use For:

Beeswax Food Wraps: Acts as a key ingredient in homemade beeswax wraps, adding stickiness that allows the wraps to cling around food and dishes.

Furniture Polish: Combined with beeswax and oil to create a natural, nourishing polish for wooden furniture.

Adhesives: Used in the formulation of natural glues and adhesives for art and craft projects.

Sealants: Employed as a sealing agent in traditional methods for waterproofing boats and containers.

Varnishes and Paints: A component in eco-friendly varnishes and paints, providing a natural finish to wood and other materials.

Incense: Burned as incense for its aromatic pine scent, contributing to air purification and creating a calming atmosphere.

Medicinal Uses: Historically used in balms, salves, and plasters for its purported anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial properties.

Soap Making: Incorporated into soap recipes for its scent and potential skin benefits.

Candle Making: Used to harden candles and increase their burning time.

Grip Enhancers: Applied on the handles of tools or sports equipment (such as baseball bats and gymnastics rings) to improve grip.

Music Industry: Rosin is used by stringed instrument players (violins, violas, cellos) to provide friction between the bow hair and strings.

Dancing Floors: Sprinkled on floors to reduce slipperiness and improve grip for dancers.

Printing and Photography: Used in traditional printing processes and as a component in some photographic solutions.

Cosmetics: A minor ingredient in some natural cosmetics for its skin-adhesive properties.
