Samuel S. Apsucker has been using pine resin for home remedies for years. For wounds, Samuel applies a glob of soft pine resin on the wound and it works like super glue. He's treated skin rashes by dissolving pine resin in 190 proof Everclear and using the solution as an ointment. Sore throat? Samuel chews a gob of pine resin. All in all, pine resin has been pretty useful for Samuel including burning things. Speaking of burning, nobody has seen Mrs. Apsucker in quite a while.
