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.

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.
