My understanding of the difference between "ordinary" pine tar and "kiln burned" pine tar:
Ordinary pine tar is a byproduct of the burning of pine wood for the production of charcoal.
Kiln burned pine tar is produced through the burning of the stumps of a particular species of pine, for the sole purpose of creating a quality pine tar of high purity.
From all I have read, the kiln burned is what's recommended for use in body care products. Obviously you are free to use whatever pine tar you want, but I just thought I would provide that information since the horse health person didn't actually answer your question
Thank you. I noticed they didn't directly answer my question and took that to mean it would be a negative response but they chose not to cast a negative of any kind for any reason on their product. Just my opinion. At any rate, I've used the pine tar for several batches of soap and love it in use. There have been no ill effects to date so I will forge on and continue on my path as I am not selling soap and those who have used it are most happy.
Wait a minute.
On my elbow!
It's a finger growing out of my elbow! Granted it's little, but it's the second one this year! :shock:
I always felt being forced to eat brussel sprouts as a kid would have ill effects and this proves it! :roll:
