The native white pine forests in northeastern America were so vast, as legend has it, a squirrel could travel all its life without coming down from the trees. White pine possesses a powerful medicinal resin in its bark. In India, the resin from a similar species of tree is successfully used to treat the most severe forms of venereal disease, including gonorrhea. White Pine is a warming, circulation stimulant, used traditionally in herbal combinations to overcome or prevent the onset of colds, and flu by raising circulatory action. It is an excellent expectorant to reduce mucus secretions in colds and helps in their elimination.
