The cure.

The original Pine Oil Liniment from 1906. This miracle oil has been known to cure everything but a broken heart. Made from the resinous wood of the Long Leaf Pine tree, Astyptodyne has been a southland tradition for more than 103 years. Used for muscle and joint pain, cuts, bruises, scratches, sunburn, fire ant bites and so much more!

Sure, it smells like Pine Sol.

Sure, it’s a little greasy.

But it’s a memory of my childhood. A way to remember my father’s southern roots.

I still have a bottle.

Do I use it? Well, no. Because it stinks.

But it’s good to know that I have the cure for whatever ails you. Right here, in my medicine cabinet.

  1. In our house there was something called paregoric. Tasted like rocket fuel but cured all stomach aches. You just can’t get it any more…

  2. Ant bites can be serious, or even fatal. Angry ants will swarm upon anything in their path and begin to bite if their mounds are disturbed. Every year, millions of people are bitten by ants in the United States alone. Knowing how to treat ant bites is important, even if the only reaction you have is mild.^
