More about Pine Tar:
Pine tar is a sticky, resinous substance extracted from the burning of pine wood under extreme heat. Pine tar has played a role in medicinal remedies for over a thousand years, predominantly in Scandinavia but was even known as far away as Greece and was described by Hippocrates around 2000 years ago. Sailors, carpenters and baseball players may be familiar with pine tar for its more recent uses as a natural preservative that protects wood and rigging from a harsh climate or for improving grip on baseball bats.
