Add the resin to incense blends. This sap is produced by the pine tree to seal up cuts or damages to the tree. Native Americans used pine sap for medicinal purposes. The resin is either chewed on or made into a beverage by mixing with water. It is known to be very effective in treating stomach ulcers and rheumatoid arthritis. Modern medical experts have not verified the medicinal benefits of pine resin though.
Pine resin or as some call it pitch can be chewed like gum and Native Americans routinely chewed and consumed the resin for its anti-bacterial properties and for joint pain. The resin can be steeped in hot water to make a tea that is said to help with arthritis and stomach problems.
Small charcoal rounds can be used to burn resins, herbs, incense, and heavy aromatic gums for ceremony and scent. As incense, these oleoresins are burned, alone or in combination with other fragrant natural materials such as powdered barks, flowers and essential oils. In ancient times, hot embers from the fire were used to burn incense resins. Today most cultures around the world use manufactured charcoal pucks, made from compressed powdered, partly burnt wood. Often these are impregnated with Saltpeter so they burn evenly.
