I'm new to this conversation, but I have ordered 4oz of turpentine from G Forest as well and it smells so so so good. I just absolutely love it. I used to take it with sugar but now lately I haven't been taking it internally. I made a cream of just virgin coconut oil and some turp in it, and have been applying it religiously to my finger. I burnt it on my mower at least 2 months ago and it has been real wrinkly looking and then I ended up getting a blister there and it made it worse.
Well after applying that coconut/terp to it it is finally starting to heal very nicely.
Also I have been using the terp in an enema and have been getting out lots of trash, some looks like flukes. They are light green in color and looks like dried grape skins or tomato skins. I only use about 5 drops at a time, but it seems to work well. Although I haven't been able to find much info on this subject, so I tried it with success.
HI U GOOD PEOPLE DOIN, , , , , , ,
Spent several days on the computer searching for kerosene that can be ingested. Found the 100 % Gum Sperit Turpentine for my Candida treatment and while on that trek, I ran across lots of articles about kerosene to cure cancer. Can anyone shed any light on that kind of kerosene. I have keorsene lanterns, heaters and always have industrial kerosene on hand. Our early ancestors used both to stay healthy. I remember my Granddad used Coal Oil for a poisonous snake bite. He lived to be 88. Appreciate any input you may have on both oils. =======RH=========
Robert Henry: Took my first dose (2 sugar cubes saturated) of 100% Turpentine Dec 29. Got a little heavy aftertaste in the gut fallowing, so I air-popped some corn w/ added sunflower oil & sea salt, fallowed by lemon water (increase the bile flow) and woke up latter in the night feeling unusually light. What improvement I noticed that night has seemed to carry on until now. After only one dose I have been telling myself, albeit w/ some reserve, “I’ve found a new and powerful ally. “
I am planning another dose tomorrow. Maybe to early to draw any conclusions but compared to the effect of other natural anti-pathogens like Grapefruitseed, Olive Leaf, Neem, Oregano, the Turpentine appears waaay more powerful. I guess it all comes down to potency and Turpentine is a highly distilled pure grade. I experienced no herx or die-off to speak of, although I do use lots of fiber and take peroxide cleansing enemas daily. I also found the taste not at all unpleasant, as-a-matter-of-fact, one might add a dropper to a citrus drink enjoyable.
Hi Robert Henry, I noticed a man from the LDN Yahoo Group who is taking kerosene along with Lufenuron (aka dimilin, apparently) to rid himself of candida. (which worked very well) He said he bought it at Lowe’s home center, 1K grade, mostly free of sulfur for about $10/gal and takes it (1 T, I believe, but not 100% certain) three times a week. I have no knowledge about the safety of this. He also has cancer and has written interesting protocols he has developed for it, most recently using HCL and water. You might like to join this group and type in the search word kerosene and you will be able to talk to him directly and privately through his email if you hit reply. Best wishes!
Hello Robert Henry from Ten Mile Tn:
I trust many people here at EC. However, there's one particular person that's gained my full trust. That person is Bill Thompson. Take a look at his view on turpentine. It's the absolute fastest & best way to get rid of candida & its bio-films. The turpentine just needs to be taken at appropriate doses.
There's going to be detox from this stuff. It's a given! I've been on it myself but I get worse detox symptoms from iodine than I do from turpentine. Turpentine is absolutely safe! This stuff can cure a lot of diseases! I totally trust Bill & his research!
Robert Henry from Ten Mile —it’ me, Om
I actually agree with the oil/sulphur treatment in YOUR times. Henry, but now the oil is carcinogenic and destroys tissue, causing severe health problems.
I remember a post where a woman tried to heal her dog of mange by seeing the vet. As often, nothing brought on a cure. Then someone reported her when they saw the dog’s condition which brought her to court and the result was she was forced to buy the useless vet treatments. It got up my heckles. As a rescue person I have had a few times to answer for ignorasmusses who would rather kill an animal than bring it back on the road to health. So, I think in your times this was a successful cure and I am glad.
I have purchased pure turpentine but cannot come up with where to buy sulphur powder. So meanwhile I will buy NEWSTOCK from feed store which guarantees freedom from mite.
I strongly go along with some old time remedies which are practised even now in Europe. As a next thing I want to mention re your treatment of “intruders” and what to do to them: The Lord gave us free will to do as we please, with ONE condition : face up to the consequences! The key word is KARMA. Namaste, Om And all the bet.
When I took milk thistle 20 years ago, it caused me to go into a very deep depression. I tried it on and off and had same reaction. Never knew why. Sometime in last 10 years, I have been able to take it without any problems. So these problems can happen with non turpenine stuff also.
Just an FYI in ref. to your comment about finding sulphur powder. I have been using the MSM (crystals) from local farm/feed store. (can't name brands/stoes on this site) Same type can be ordered on line manyonline pet or feed type websites. I researched this in the last year and it is as close to organic sulphur as you can get with out paying high priced of regular organic sulphur. This product is the crystal type product that looks very similar to like Epsom salts. I usually dissolve in water and use as a topical or consume depending on what the illness/wound treatment. The brand I get is 99% with no other fillers. In the past I was buying drug store capsules and breaking/empty to dissolve in water but it can have many fillers and sulphur can be picky and may be less effective if mixed with some chemicals. I think I paid about $12 for 2lbs just to give you and idea. Other organic sulphurs on the net sold for human consumption can cost you $50 and up. Works great and there are several brands/mfg so just look at the labels to make sure you get purest with out all the fillers. I think the crystals could be hand ground if you need powder.
Just some more information on Turpentine. In a recent email to me, Mr Prakash, whose son has severe parasite, candida and bacterial infections, describes the progress his son has made while using turpentine.
The newer research confirms that it is the toxins from the parasites and candida that interfers with a child's brain development which causes various autism spectrum disorders. So it therefore becomes paramount to rid Mr Prakash's son of these parasites and candida in order for his autism problems to improve. Mr Prakash has only been using the turpentine protocol for just over a month. Here is how he describes turpentine's effects against parasites, candida and biofilms in a recent email:
"My son has been making a steady progress [on MMS] with 1-2 worms/biofim per week. But after using Turp, has expelled almost twice as often. His behavioral gains were also very drastic. Another parent who has not seen any biofilm/worm for 3 months has started seeing worms and biofilm after a week on Turpentine
…Turp is Turpentine. It's made from pure gum spirits of pine trees. It's very effective against Biofilm/Candida which is the missing link in our [Autism] recovery protocols. It was used as a home remedy in olden days."
I also know that many people seem to have unfounded fears about turpentine that seem to me to be unjustified. And here's why:
If you look up the MSDS for gum turpentine they will never have any toxicity research available on the LD50 levels for rats or rabbits. However, if you can find an MSDS for turpentine that occurs before 1999 (when turpentine was suddenly banned as a poison for no good reason) then you will see that it has an LD50 (median kill) level on rats and rabbits of over 5000 mgs/kg. Now compare this LD50 value against the LD50 for ordinary table salt (2600 mgs/kg) and you will see that turpentine is almost two times safer (as a poison) than ordinary table salt.
Furthermore, the LD50 for turpentine is 5000 mgs/kg which means that a man weighing 100 kgs would need to drink 500 mls — or two glass fulls — of turpentine to cause death.
I'm only recommending one teaspoon of turpentine a day for adults.
Bill, what is the MMS spoken of in this thread? And adults could safely take kerosene/turpentine at a teaspoon a day? Is there a maximum time and would you need to stop for awhile and start again? Is one better than the other as far as taking kerosene versus turpentine. Thank you
Hi Healthseeker…MMS is Miracle Mineral Solution or Chlorine Dioxide that was discovered by Jim Hubble. It is a pro-oxidant (rather than anti-oxidant) method of destroying pathogens. This means that it uses its free radical properties to kill pathogens. MMS is very similar to hydrogen peroxide in this respect. Unfortunately, if you are using any form of pro-oxidant protocol like MMS or hydrogen peroxide, this will always tend to deplete the anti-oxidants in your body. Generally, MMS reduces the body's anti-oxidants because pro-oxidants will always tend to react with any anti-oxidants which would tend to cancel out each other's beneficial effects.
This is why, when supplementing MMS and hydrogen peroxide, you must never take any anti-oxidants at the same time. And this is one of the reasons why MMS only tends to be effective in the body for less than an hour — because the body naturally tends to get rid of free radicals quickly.
Turpentine is an anti-oxidant protocol that tends to kill many forms of pathogens. Turpentine therefore does not tend to deplete anti-oxidants and therefore lasts for a much longer amount of time in the body. In Mr Prakash's usage of turpentine/MMS for his young son, I also strongly advised that he should alternate the MMS and turpentine protocols on a week on, week off basis — you should never use MMS and turpentine at he same time.
There seems to be little or no difference between kerosene and turpentine in terms of its content or healing qualities. I also believe that turpentine is the stronger verson of the two(higher iso-pinene content). I also tend to recommend turpentine because its easy — just look for pure gum spirit of turpentine. There are many equivalents to kerosene — mineral oils, paraffin, white spirit etc. This tends to be confusing. But turpentine is turpentine — just look for turpentine made from the pure sap of pine trees with no additives.
Work up to the one teaspoon dose over a week or more. Start with a 1/4 teaspoon of turps. After you have been on this protocol for a month then take a rest for about a week from the protocol. And if you have serious candida issues then you will probably get Herx or die-off. If this happens then just take a day off from the protocol and do it like that.
See JIM HUMBLE website. Not Jim Hubble.
Bill from San Fernando, as usual your postings always educational. Below is the link from UK on turpentine.
Due to my difficult experience with trying to help Asians and Africans as well as people from India and Pakistan with candida problems who cannot afford these nutrients, I have had to go herbal to help them which creates other difficulties. In the Philippines, the average wage is about 150 pesos per day or $3.60 per day. So, for a Filipino who has systemic candida to spend perhaps $16.00 or more on a small bottle of lugols iodine — this is just not reasonable or possible. Similarly, for an average Filipino to be able to afford organic food is simply not possible or realistic because of the cost. As you can imagine, this has frustrated me somewhat in my efforts to help these people.
As a result of all these problems, I’ve been trying for some time to find another candida remedy that is easy to take, that kills candida quickly and is relatively cheap and easy to obtain.
And I think that I’ve found a cheaper nutrient (historically and widely used in the past) that does indeed kill candida rapidly in the intestines, blood and organs plus it does so much more. This substance is known by various synonyms: spirit oil of pines, spirit of gum turpentine or kerosene are some of the names.
There is not alot of research on these fractionated oils as supplemented oils but in the 1899 version of the Merck Manual the following has been recorded as oil of pine’s supplemented benefits and are of interest:
This list goes on and on.
Odd therefore, that in the 1990 Merck Manual and after more than 100 years of wide successful use, the above description for turpentine was radically changed to describe turpentine as very poisonous.
I guess that turpentine spirit, very much like the broadband pathogen-killing abilities of lugols iodine and hydrgogen peroxide, scared the medical research establishment with its apparently unassailable healing qualities.
Some of the constituents of turpentine:
Benefits of alpha-pinenes:
LipophilicBactericidalFungicidalInsecticidalPesticidalAnticarcinogenic (cytotoxic on cancer cells)DiureticAntioxidantImmunostimulant Anti-inflammatoryAnti-convulsiveSedativeAnti-stressHypoglycaemic Capable of expelling xenobiotics Anticholinesterase activity
Benefits of beta-pinenes:
LipophilicBactericidalFungicidalInsecticidalActing against osteoclastsAnticarcinogenic (cytotoxic on cancer cells)PesticidalAntioxidantSedative
Oil of pines or turpentine also contains significant amounts d-limonene, cavicol, terpenes, acetic acid and butyric acid. I am not going to descrbe the benefits of these, not enough space, but — from all the evidence and testimonials that I’ve read, it appears that turpentine or kerosene kills candida very rapidly in the intestines and in the blood/organs. Other effects — it cures arthritis because oil of pines also kills mycoplasma and is also anti-cancer. It is a wonderful anti-inflammatory and a safe pain killer. In short, spirit of gum turpentine appears to be strongly anti-candida, anti-cancer, anti-mycoplasma, antibacterial, antifungal, antivirus and anti-parasitic. With the possible exceptions of iodine and hydrogen peroxide I really don’t know of any other single nutrient that has these broadband anti-pathogen killing effects. It simply doesn’t get better than that. No wonder then that the 1990 Merck Manual decided to trash it — how could their drugs compete with that!!
You can read all about the evidence and testimonials here:
http://xa.yimg.com/kq/groups/11136827/2098715122/name/Turpentine-The_Candida_Cleaner -Dr. Daniels.pdf
I must admit that I haven’t tried distilled oil of pines yet, due to the difficulties of getting the properly distilled oil, but I fully intend to take it for about four weeks or so (as recommended by Dr Daniels as the ultimate cleanse and blood purifier ) to see and understand its effects. For this reason, I hesitate to actually recommend it here as a cure for candida or anything else yet.
In respect of all the above on the health properties of turpentine or kerosene, I therefore have a request to everyone reading this.
Could you please ask your grandparents — grandfathers or grandmothers — whether their parents or granparents ever used oil of pines, turpentine or kerosene as a regular body cleanser or healer of diseases etc.? And could you report anything you find out back here on EC? Turpentine/Kerosene was supplemented widely in America and Europe before the 1900s. I’m really wanting to know dosages and effects on people who have regularly used turpentine or kerosene for healing specific diseases.
I will also be obtaining some turpentine or spirits of gum turpentine(hopefully with a low boiling point of 100 – 150 degrees C) to test out internally on myself soon and will report back its effects, good or bad, when I can.
Hi Bill, I just want to thank you for your posts. This one is amazing! I am always learning from what you have to pass on. It’s also always interesting to see the information which is withheld from the masses to prevent self-help in our healthcare. This is why it is so important to have a forum such as Earth Clinic to get the information out there so we, the people, can make an educated decision regarding our path we would like to pursue for ourselves.
Again, thank you always for your very informative and educational posts! May you be blessed always, Lisa
Bill— you asked about turpentine. My Great – Grandmother once described in her memoir that her mother (Norwegian Immigrant) used it to treat them for head lice. Nits were removed. The hair was combed with a comb dipped in turpentine scrapung the scalp a bit then braided.
She also discussed a mixture of pitch and turpentine that was always kept near the stove (to stay soft) This was used for cuts and scrapes.
My great grandmother’s younger sister was struck in the face with a double bladed axe and her nose was hanging by skin. My great grandmother claimed her mother put the nose back in place and covered the affected area liberally with the pitch mixture. I doubted this story as a child. Once when my great great aunt was visiting I asked to see her nose… I this was over 80 years later… My great great aunt bore only a tiny white line all around her nose!
Some more of my own thoughts on supplementing turpentine or kerosene.
Bye the way, paraffin is also a similar form or synonym for kerosene but I have avoided using it because of the pink and blue parrafin forms used in UK and Australia respectively. These coloured forms are definitely not healthy to ingest due to the additives which are used to colour them. There is also paraffin oil which is used medicinally for constipation in UK but this form does not have the same notable chemical benefits of supplementing turpentine.
Whenever a plant is damaged by an act of God or by animals, fungus, bacteria etc, the plant has its own immune system which produces a group of substances that both defend the injury against pathogen invasion and heal the damaged area. This group of chemicals that are secreted by plants has been given a name — salvestrols. Resveratrol is a typical example of a salvestrol. If you like, salvestrols are equivalent to our own antibodies.
Production of pine resin is also a response to injury for a pine tree and this resin contains a whole host of salvestrols to defend the plant against further damaging pathogen attack and to help seal the injury.
There appears to be two significant areas of beneficial activity in how turpentine actually works in our bodies. The first area is the intestines — where gum of turpentine’s strongly anti-pathogenic actvities come into play. Secondly is the major and unparalleled blood purifying activity that these oils seem to have once they get into the blood. Therefore and concerning this, Walter Last advises that small amounts of the thinner oil forms — the ones with lower boiling points of between 100 and 150 degrees C — will be absorbed easily through the stomach with their main area of action being in the blood. As such, we have the thicker turpentine distilled oil forms — those which have their boiling points up to 200 degrees C, which have more action in the intestines because these are not so easily absorbed into the blood from the stomach. So what would be most advantageous is to take a turpentine form that is equally beneficial to the intestines and blood. To this end and to get the thinner turpentine forms(with a lower B P) of turpentine into the intestines, Walter Last suggests adding a second thicker oil — say oil of paraffin or castor oil — to ensure that the turpentine is carried directly into the intestines from the stomach. Dr Jennifer Daniels advises taking the lower boiling point or thinner form with sugar in order to ensure that at least some of the turpentine gets into the intestines. The low boilling point forms seem to be the best ones to supplement because many of the aromatics, such as aldehydes, which are not good for the body, have already been removed by distilled separation.
RE: KEROSENE CURE To begin with I was born (1948) in a remote little town in the Philippines where tap water and electricity was too expensive. At night we used kerosene lamp, the simplest method we used by using a pepsi bottle with the holed cap for the cotton wick, the used kerosene and mom’s home made coconut oil mix was used whenever we kids got cold/cough. Before bedtime, she rubbed on our throat, chest and back, then covered our body with flannel, throat wrapped with hankerchief to keep warm and off to bed.. The next morning or after a couple of mornings.. Cold/cough gone. Until my mom was in her eighties.. she was using this mixture to cure her cold/cough. She never take OTC cough syrups.
Their life style was very simple/close to nature.. Whole life drinking spring water, cooking in clay pots using wood for fire, never used stainless or aluminum pans/ pots, for frying they used an iron wok which is seldom used since cooking oil is expensive. Anothe habit was weekly swim in the sea, planted their own veggies. My parents did not know what is processed/fast food.The different life style between my mom and her sister(she lived in manila most of her life) resulted to breast cancer death while my mom died of traffic accident at the age of 80 with no illness while my father who drunk local coconut wine in his youth died of kidney failure at the age of 84.
I wish I could have a life like my parents which is impossible now that I am living in dubai a place where almost nothing is natural.
keep up the good work Bill.. God Bless Us.
First, thanks to Louwrence from Rustenburg for your reply to my post (i almost overlooked it) w/ the Walter Last link to this seemingly great anti-pathogen cure-all. Now thanks to Bill for his interest in the possibilities of these substances as medicine.
My recent results from using other natural anti-pathogens like Colloidal Silver and MMS have been mixed, but I never really sustained any kind of therapeutic level or doses. One big reason for my lack of commitment is the fact that both these agents are known reducing agents of not only bad pathogens but also good endogenous Glutathione enzymes. With an already damaged Glutathione production problem just kinda leaves me more than a little discouraged on these.
So, the Turpentine or Kerosene agents seem very promising except the administration. Question: have not any other routes of administration been tried as it first seems somewhat disgusting drinking these compounds, and also absorption problems?
Hi Bill, I read your comment about kerosine and remembered the cab driver who picked us from the airport last week on our return from India. Noticing our cold and coughs, he related a story of his grandmother, who had come to the US from East Europe: she once cured him of a severe bout of cough by making him drink milk with a few drops of kerosine in it. I listened to this story in disbelief, although I didn’t let on, since he was such a dear, polite man. Kerosine, when I was growing in India, was used as a fuel for stoves in the kitchen. In fact, those tragic ‘dowry deaths’ where North Indian brides are burnt by being set on fire use kerosine! The cab driver, who said he was in his seventies, says he never suffered from such severe cough again. Reading your information now, I am beginning to revise my opinion. Thanks!
Hi Suzy… Much thanks and God Bless you for your speedy response to my request. It seems that there is no end to the benefits of turps and kerosene oils.
Some more info on my meditations on the usefulness of Turps and Kerosene distillates. I’m sure many here would be horrified at me saying or even admitting that these oils are also used as paint thinners and varnish removers.
But that’s the whole point isn’t it? — That is one of the biggest benefits of these oils. To illustrate this I’ll just tell a true story. I read a magazine article, a long time ago, where a very famous gastro-intestinal surgeon was being interviewed. The interviewer asked all the usual questions — but I really became interested when the surgeon said outright that, in all his 35 years as a gastro surgeon — and during all this time — he admitted that he had never ever seen what he would describe as a healthy pink inner intestines. Instead, he described most of the inner surface of the intestines he had seen “as having a smooth dark grey appearance, as if the villi surfaces had been varnished…”. When asked what had caused this dark grey varnished look by the interviewer, the emminent gastro shot back without any hestation at all — “Unquestionably it was due to excess vegetable oils in the diet.”
I’ve aleady said that Turpentine and Kerosene are used as capable solvents to get rid of and dissolve varnish — so the benefits of these oils wrt removing the intestine’s inner varnish (caused by these chemically processed, oxidized vegetable oils) should be more than clear now. As well, the health benefits for both your intestines and your nutritional pathways arising from this should also be fairly obvious.
Hi Bill, I want to say you are simply “GREAT”. I appreciate, the pains you take to find the information and put it on this site. It is a treat to read your and Ted’s articles/reports. I have a suggestion, on this site there should be way by which one could get on to the page where one can read whatever Ted and you have so far written on this site. Because it is a pleasure to read, it gives lot of knowledge. I try to pass on and help people who are ignorent about what good alternate methods can do to their health. God Bless You. Baldev
To Bill or anyone in the Philippines: I have a friend that is headed to the Philippines tomorrow, for a few weeks. Is there anywhere there he can get this pine spirit oil? Rather amusing about the Merck documentation, ha. Also, to take the chance to get things, what else should I send him back with? I seem to remember hearing of different effective things that aren’t costly there, that are hard/impossibe to get in the US, but they are scattered all throughout EC website. Thanks for whatever you can suggest.
Hi CityGirl32… The right forms of Turpentine or Kerosene for supplementation are described in an article by Walter Last shown here:
You should also easily be able to buy some of these forms of turps or kerosene — if not all of them — quite easily within the US or from the internet.
I would also not advise that your friend brings turpentine back to the US from the Philippines in their luggage because this might cause her some considerable trouble — turpentine is a flammable solvent and is definitely not allowed on planes now and the airport checks on people coming into America are also fairly rigorous now. So perhaps better and less trouble all round just to order this off the internet or buy within America itself if you can.
Also my warm thanks to Lucena, Suzy, Trina — and any others that I’ve missed out– for posting some wonderful info on the use of Turpentine as a healer.
Among the top culprits of “bad” vegetable oils is: Trans Fatty Acids, Hydrogenated Veg. Oil like margarine, and V. Oils that have gone rancid. I use very little V. Oil and hardly ever cook with it, but I do add one cap 250mg BHT, one 8,000 iu Vit-A, and one 400 iu mixed natural tocopherols to 1 bottle mixed Veg oil. I supplement Fish Oil softgels as well as Flax Seed Oil softgels and sometimes either Borage or Evening Primrose Oil.
And of course we now have the GMO’s to contend with.
Thanks for your great research, it's really helped me a lot. I managed to find the right Turpentine with a boiling point of 165 degrees C. Does this mean it will be absorbed into the blood from the stomach; As Turpentine with lower boiling points do (i.e., between 100?C and 150?C) or will it have more action the intestines as you mentioned about Turpentine with boiling points up to 200?C ? Have you found a Turpentine with a boiling point in the lower range? Sorry. I know I'm showing up late to the party.
Hi Kevin… There are several ways to supplement turpentine. I either supplement a teaspoon of turpentine with a teaspoon of either molasses or raw honey, mix them in my mouth, then down it with some water. You can also take the turpentine with sugar. Or I just take the teaspoon of turpentine with just some water.
If you have candida or intestinal problems then perhaps it is better to take the turpentine with sugar, molasses or honey just before meals. Then less turpentine gets absorbed directly into the blood from the stomach and most of the turps gets carried by the food into the intestines where it is most needed to get rid of the candida.
Taking the turpentine or kerosene with water or milk on an empty stomach, where it is more directly absorbed into the blood, is mainly the way that people in eastern Europe take this remedy. This method — which acts to purify the blood — seems to be very effective against disease outside the intestines like many and varous cancers, tuberculosis, leukemia, diabetes, sepsis etc. See this link.
As to your question, I've been using pine oil(essential oil) derived from Scots Pine (Pinus sylvestris) for the last six months. I have not been able to find any respectable turpentine or kerosene in the Philippines yet. However, Walter Last recommends several types and brands of turpentine or kerosene that can be used here in this article.
I read with interesting article post by Bill regarding Turpentine. It made me think about the connection to Limonene, which is extracted from orange peel and contains turpentine. It is also used as an industrial cleaner. I use it for digestive issues and mucus problems. I wounded whether it help by killing fungus and parasites. Does anyone know? My best wishers to everyone. Christine
When you refer kerosene for turpentine. It reminds me of the hydrocarbon liquid fuel distilled from Petroleum. Of course both are different. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kerosene. Kerosene is used as fuel for home cooking in rural regions of india and by the lower income people. Thanks
Hi Christine… Turpentine or distilled pine oil contains many terpenes — of which limonene is just one. Pine oil usually contains about 0. 5% – 2% limonene content. The major constituents of pine oil are alpha- and beta-pinenes(also terpenes). The many health characteristics and benefits of the pinene content of pine oil are defined in this link.
The most interesting aspect of its healing properties is that turpentine is anti-fungal, anti-bacterial, anti-mycolasma, anti-viral and anti-parasitic. As well, these pinenes remove candida and bacterial biofilms quickly due to its solvent properties as a paint stripper. Pinenes can also expel xenobiotics — they act to remove poisons and foreign drugs from the body.
I also must relate an interesting story and side-effect concerning my own use of pine oil. About six or seven months ago, just before starting to use and road-test the pine oil, I had a tooth capped because my gums had receded and the tooth roots were exposed. After I had this done, about a week later, the tooth roots became well infected and started to ache and it just got worse and worse. This tooth also became very loose and wobbly and I thought that I would eventually have to have the tooth pulled. I certainly did not want to loose this back tooth.
Then I started my experiment with supplementing about 8 – 12 drops of pine oil every day with a teaspoon of molasses or raw honey or with a glass of water.
After about a month into this protocol I noticed that the tooth pain or infection had gone away completely. The tooth and roots had also firmed up considerably.
So, as a result of this discovery and every night before bed, I would just put two drops of turpentine on my finger, wipe it on my tongue and spread it around my mouth with my tongue. I would not drink any water — I would just leave the drops of pine oil in my mouth overnight. This was the last thing I did before my head hit the pillow.
First thing in the morning when I woke up, I noticed that my saliva or spit was thin and not sour, thick and mucusy. Also and amazingly — no bad breath. This was all evidence to me that pine oil was successful and useful at killing bad bacteria in the mouth.
By putting just two drops on the tongue before sleep and keeping it in the mouth overnight, this will also have other minor benefits. During the night, the saliva and pine oil will naturally travel down the esophagus to the stomach — effectively and gently disinfecting these regions overnight. As well and as you sleep, the pine oil vapour would also travel to the nose and lungs — also helping to kill pathogens in these regions.
I can now crunch hard seeds and nuts with my once-infected back tooth. I also believe that taking two drops of pine oil every night helps to remove biofilms on the teeth, kills plaque bacteria and prevents gingivitis, thus improving and healing both the gums and teeth. I was also quite surprised but particularly pleased that pine oil successfully and completely cured both the infected tooth and the pain.
For myself, I will continue to use pine oil in this simple manner as a regular nightly protocol to help keep my teeth and gums healthy.
I have been looking at the uses etc on the kerosine and noted that the colouring added to our kerosine may be a problem… however the following product is clear.. http://www.recochem.com.au/files/downloads/Industrial_Kerosene_Clear_PDS_Apr10.pdf
Perhaps one of your readers may advise on the use of this product. Tom
Strange as it seems, suddenly I remember way back us kids in kindergarten in Europe. Whenever a child had cough or respiratory trouble, the nuns that ran the kindergarten gave us a sugar cube drenched with a black substance that did taste quite ok, perhaps with a faint resemblance to liquorice but not quite..
I remember the taste and was wondering what it might have been. Well, on reading Walter Last and other posts I know it was the good old stuff that did the trick. No wonder big pharma is trying to demonize it! Om
Kerosine for internal use must be purified. In Russia people use Todicamp (kerosine with green hull walnut) but you have to be very careful when choosing manufacturer. The best one comes from the inventor's son Andrey Todica.
@Tom Qld That turpentine wouldn't be good. It has a boiling point of 145-260. In this link http://totaltruth.ca/pdf/Kerosene it says the ones with higher boiling points aren't effective for purifying the blood but may clean the large intestine. The Recochem manufacturer provides a few turpentines and the one that is the best is the Pure Turpentine Bio Option one. It has a boiling point of 150-180C. This is the one most used. If you live in Canada you can get it at Canadian Tire.

The Recochem product you mention landed me in hospital. It is not 100%. Then I ordered from Georgia, USA, the Forest product which is awesome. Expensive postage but well worth it.
Just to make sure, no one ingests the Recochem product, not even externally. I only used it externally and was overcome with the fumes and the effect on my skin which started to vibrate all over the body.
I asked my son in law to ask his grandparents about turps: grandma's mother used a mixture of camphor, coal oil & turp in a tin can, place it in a pan with water on stove; heated it slowly until warm; dipped a wool rag in it, then wrapped the rag in a towel and placed on a second towel over the chest to break up congestion.
My mother also remembers something like this, but can't exactly recall.
Our former landlord had and accident out in the woods about two years ago and had a huge flap of skin cut away from his upper arm just above the elbow, and his wife, knowledgeable in natural remedies, "glued" it back on with Pine Pitch. We could not detect any scar where it was reportedly used. We have it in our family emergency care kit now.
