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 woody aroma, Turpentine has been part of protocols used for removing heavy metals, candida and many other internal uses, however, this is something you will have to research for yourself. Dr Jennifer Daniels has some good videos about Turpentine oil 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 the 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) as well as various neutral substances.

Turpentine & Respiratory
For most people Pine Essential Oil can be very useful for potentially relieving their respiratory issues and it is commonly used as a remedy for coughs and colds. This is because the oil has expectorant abilities, meaning that it might loosen mucus and phlegm from the respiratory tracts making it less hard to eliminate them. By reducing the amount of deposition in our respiratory tracts, our bodies are able to combat the initial infection quicker and decrease the time to fully recover.
Sore Throat …Swab the back of the throat with a tiny amount of Turpentine Oil. Follow with some organic forest honey to mask the taste if you do not care for it.

Clean, Safe, Effective
There is so much more to Turpentine
Joints... You can make your own massage oil with Turpentine to massage into aching joints. Because Castor Oil (See ''Related Products'' Page) is also good for joint issues and stiffness, 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, mucous membranes and children.
Head Lice... Over the counter remedies and prescriptions against 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 Extra Virgin 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. There is no scientific information on this but if it works for so many men and women, why not try it yourself?

Turpentine can be used for specific Health Protocols
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 Oil for the first time, you will usually always get a Herxheimer 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 Oil. Please be sure to use good-quality Turpentine that is truly the distilled resin of pine trees. The quality of Ancient Purity’s Turpentine Oil is guaranteed!
Turpentine the Power of the Forests
How to Avoid Side Effects with Turpentine
Should 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.
Note: Always remember that Turpentine is toxic. Always take small doses!
Peace... Turpentine Essential Oil
Turpentine Essential Oil… Closing Thoughts
You probably came to this page after research on removing unwanted guests. Thats Turpentines power, but it's one of its many powers. I have personally followed the Turpentine Protocol and found it incredible. There might be a good reason why numerous common household cleaning solutions claim to "smell like pine trees." This link to pine oil and decent health is as ancient as the mountains, and it’s connected to the oil’s germ-deterring and disinfectant properties. In fact, Pine Needle Oil was highly revered by Western medicine’s father, Hippocrates, who was aware of the oil’s potent healing effect on the respiratory system. Similarly, pine tree resins were and still are used by the Native Americans in bedding to deter lice and bedbugs.
Obtained by extracting the oils from the resins of pine trees, Turpentine Oil, is a potent therapeutic help. Similar to tea tree and eucalyptus oil, extracts of pine resins are powerful agents against damage-causing organisms of all kinds, making it a brilliant natural oil to keep in your medicine chest as well as your cleaning cupboard. Turpentine Oil’s powerful capacities are linked to its rich levels of terpenes and phenols which are acidic plant chemicals that can get rid of germs and ward off illness. It also can have a healing effect on the endocrine system and helps our body in cleansing impurities from our skin. Pine hydrosol is a body tonic and immune-stimulant, improving overall emotional and physical balance. So why not have Turpentine with you, there are literally so many benefits.
