Benefits of Pine Tar Soap

PinetarA very special soap product which can be used for very special conditions. That’s a good way to describe pine tar soaps. This old fashioned personal care item has been used for centuries to promote a variety of health benefits but what exactly is pine tar?

Pine tar is an all-natural substance that results from burning the wood of pine trees. Originally used in the Scandinavian countries, the first use of this unique product was to protect wood from the harsh winter conditions as well as to preserve the bottoms of Nordic skis.

Known for its antibacterial and anti-fungal properties, pine tar soaps have been used for its medicinal benefits in the treatment of skin conditions for years. Pine tar soap has been proven effective in soothing psoriasis and eczema, reducing itching of the scalp due to dandruff, easing inflammation of the body, relieve itching associated with bug bites, and treating other skin irritations. It is also useful to soothe and treat symptoms of poison ivy.

Pine tar, as well as pine oil, has a strong smell and when it is combined with other scented oils, such as essential oils, creates a great product for use on the body. Considered by many an excellent product for bathing, showering, shaving and shampooing, pine tar can clean, moisturize and deodorize.

Pine tar has been traditionally associated with homemade, organic, and natural soap-making. Additionally, pine tar soap is a vegetable based product that does no harm to the environment.

    In the last months of my pregnancy I developed a rash called PUPS that was an absolute nightmare… Itching all over and impossible to sleep. The doctors can’t give you much of anything to deal with it as you are pregnant. There is no medical cure for the rash- however, when you give birth- it just disappears. I used the grandpas pine tar soap as part of a full holistic approach garnered from Internet research to deal with the itchiness – and I can swear it’s amazing! Helped soothe my skin.

    I have had PUPPS for a few weeks now and was in a bit of denial that it will go away on it’s own. Finally, it’s become unbearable and difficult to work or sleep. I’ve been researching natural remedies as I am hesitant to try heavily medicated creams. I keep coming across Grandpa’s Pine Tar soap. So, I set out to find it at my local health food store. I found a small bar of this soap (Original version) and tried it as soon as I got home from work. I continue to read up on this soap and realized soon after that there’s an ORIGINAL soap and a VEGETABLE BASED soap bar. And most women who swear by this soap to relieve PUPPS seem to use the latter version. So, I purchased a vegetable based soap bar on Amazon today. Do you happen to know if there’s a significant different between the two soap bars in regards to relieving PUPPS? Or, are the ingredients similar enough to accomplish the same results? I’ve used the grandpa’s soap bar four times within the last 24 hours accompanied by a Cetiphil lotion to keep from drying out and I can’t say it’s made a major difference…yet. So, I’m wondering if that has anything to do with the difference between the two types of soap. Any help or suggestions would be much appreciated.
