Ancient Purity presents a secret remedy in its pure form... Turpentine, a thin, volatile, essential oil, distilled from the resin of pine trees (and sometimes others). Valuable medicinally with a fresh clean balsamic aroma, Turpentine has been part of protocols used for removing heavy metals, candida many other internal uses, however, this is something you will have to research for yourself. Dr Jennifer Daniels has some good videos about Turpentine and how to use it. We will cover here some of the uses and how to avoid the side effects.
Natural, pure, undiluted, with traceable origin, of highest quality... The resin runs naturally from the trees, but generally they are tapped, the resin is then steam distilled to produce the oil. (Some turpentine-producing trees are sprayed with dilute sulphuric acid which causes the resin to exude.) The resin is yellow and fluid, translucent, slightly fluorescent, and does not harden when exposed to air. The principal constituents of Turpentine Essential Oil are... Borneol, resinic acid, sesquiterpene, terpenes (pinene) together with neutral substances.

- A sore Throat - Swab the back of the throat with turpentine. Follow with some honey to mask the taste if you do not care for it.
- Sinuses - Mix together 1 part turpentine and 3 parts olive oil. Drop several drops into each nostril to deliver turpentine to the nasal passages to relieve congestion and infection.
- A cough - Use the same mixture as for sinuses (1 part turpentine and 3 parts olive oil) and massage into the back and/or chest to relieve a cough. 1-3 drops of turpentine can be used on a sugar cube and taken internally instead
Clean, Safe, Effective
There is so much more to Turpentine
Joints... A massage oil can be made with turpentine to massage into pained joints. Because castor oil is also good for arthritis, it is a good medium to be mixed with turpentine. Use 1 part turpentine and 2 parts castor oil or coconut oil. Do not use this oil on sensitive skin, broken skin or mucous membranes.
Head Lice... Over the counter remedies and prescriptions for lice can be dangerous, especially if they need to be used repeatedly. There has also been increased resistance to these treatments as well. Turpentine can be mixed with coconut oil as a safer and effective alternative. Use no more than 1 part turpentine to 10 parts of coconut oil. Carefully massage into the scalp and spread the oil down over the hair. Cover with plastic wrap and then a towel for an hour. Remove towel and wrap. Wash oils out of hair. Repeat this process in one week, using a nit comb to remove any leftover nits in the meanwhile.
Kidney Health... A lot of people who have had kidney issues have told us about and reported results from rubbing Turpentine into the back around the kidney area, no scientific information on this, just you could also try it.

The side effects from Turpentine
While turpentine is a natural remedy and has been found to be safe and effective for many people for generations, medicinal use of turpentine can have side effects. Side effects include headaches, digestive problems, coughing, wheezing, dizziness and brain fog.
Sometimes the side effects are caused by using too much turpentine. Gigi found that "On my third dosage, though, I got the measuring spoons mixed up and not thinking I used a tablespoon of gum spirits. Ended up taking more than a teaspoon but not quite the whole tablespoon. I ended up feeling a little drunk, but other than that, nothing terrible."
Rarely is more than a teaspoon of Turpentine recommended at one time.
Mary from Saskatchewan, CA, says, "I have been using turpentine successfully for some time. Now when I take it my teeth turn a black tinge and my tongue turns the same in the middle. Also, it's like the cells on my tongue get a little longer. it's weird and disturbing. Also, it takes about a week without turpentine for it to go away. I don't want to stop as the results were spectacular."
Earth Clinic readers have also reported experiencing depression symptoms after using turpentine. Others have experienced an increase in arthritis symptoms, diarrhoea, and headaches.
Turpentine the Power of the Forests
What is Causing Side Effects with Turpentine?
Earth Clinic's Bill Thompson says, "If you have serious systemic candida and other pathogenic infections in your body and if you take turpentine for the first time, you will usually always get a Herx reaction which is caused by the heavy die-off of pathogens with the release of poisons.
"Turpentine also removes biofilms with the consequent large release of stored heavy metals into the body also causing other strange symptoms. When candida, in particular, is killed in large numbers by the turpentine, there is an even heavier release of candida poisons into the body."
Sometimes side effects are caused by taking too much turpentine at once. Side effects may be caused by using a poor quality of turpentine. Please be sure to use a good-quality turpentine that is truly the distilled resin of pine trees.
How to avoid side effects with Turpentine
- If you experience side effects with turpentine, please take a few days off and take a smaller dose when you resume the remedy.
- Take turpentine right before meals and not on an empty stomach.
- It is always best to start with the smallest dose and increase slowly so you can monitor your own personal response to turpentine.
- It is prudent to take only one new remedy at a time so you can be sure a remedy agrees with you. If you start taking turpentine with several other remedies at once, you will have a hard time knowing which remedy is causing you difficulty.
