Pine resin has more uses than most of us know. Here are some ways to use it:
Instead of bandaids: Put it on cuts and wounds to keep them from getting infected and heal. Resin stops blood flow almost immediately. It even has the same effect as stitching a wound.
Waterproof shoes and equipment: Heat it carefully and put it on seams in shoes, tents and other stuff. Take care not to set the resin on fire. It is flammable.
Start fire and make candles: Think of pine resin as stearine and use it the same way for making candles and starting fires.
