         To say that the Native Americans were fond of and made use of Pine is beyond an understatement. Generally among the Native Americans, pine was considered an antibiotic and antiseptic. It had many applications back then and still does to this day. It's a major beneficial crop and a major item in the study of ethnobotany.

Native Americans Use

Acne, Anemia, Boils, Burns, Chicken Pox, Colds, as a Deodorant, Fevers, the Flu, Gangrene, Hives, Impetigo, Pleurisy, Pneumonia, Respiratory Ailments, Ulcers, and Vitamin Deficiencies.

I've never had any doubt that plants used by the Native Americans as medicine really do work. For those of you who do however; Modern scientific phytochemical analysis can show you some rather interesting findings. We've known for some time that plants create highly complex pharmacological chemicals. The most effective modern medicine on the planet is not made by human beings, rather they are synthesized from plants. Opiates are a prime example of this, as they are extracted from the Poppy.

Using Pine As Medicine

Obviously it's important to consider whether or not you are allergic to the pine tree itself. I always thought that I was, but it turns out the needles don't bother me. Throughout history medicinal plants have been used in many different ways, including the Pine Tree. It all depends on which pharmacological constituents that you're after. Certain phytochemicals are soluble in water, where others are in alcohol. To ensure you get the most out of your medicine, a tincture can be made. For quicker results, a decoction is suggested by herbalist. I wrote a really good article on how to prepare teas, tinctures, and decoctions that you can read by clicking the link in this sentence.

The phytochemical constituents in Pine are: balsam scented oils, borneol, cadinene, camphene, and b-pinene, 66% resin acids, 25% turpentine, 7% nonvolatiles, and 2% water, Dipentene and other monocyclic terpenes, Camphene, turpentine, resin, guaiacol, creosol, methylcreosol, phenol, phlorol, toluene, xylene, and rosin.

These are highly sophisticated chemicals made by the Tree itself in accordance to the mind-boggling genetic program written into its DNA ( Deoxyribonucleic acid ). Not only do they create oxygen which in turn sustains all life on planet earth, but they also offer many other beneficial services to us all as well. Please consider this the next time you feel the urge to throw your garbage on the ground, or even chop down a random plant that we call "weeds".
