13 Uses Of Sticky Pine Sap For Wilderness Survival And Self-Reliance. Photo – off-grid.info
Try to cut a pine tree and you will notice that it will secrete some kind of sticky substance. This is known as pine resin. The pine resin is produced by the tree to protect or seal up the damaged parts. But did you know that pine resin has numerous survival uses?
Whenever you find yourself lost in the woods, the best-case scenario is that you can find pine trees just around the area. However being a survivor is about preparedness – and so it’s good to collect it before you need it. Here are some uses for pine sap:
Medical uses/First aid
1. Treat wounds. Use the pine sap to protect and cover cuts like the way you would with super glue. Remember to clean first the wound before applying the sap.
2. Stops bleeding. Apply a lump of the sap on the wound to stop the bleeding. Leave it in place, reapply if needed.
3. Antibacterial properties. When you apply it on scrapes or cuts it will stop the growth of bacteria.
4. Cures skin problems like rashes and eczema.
5. Combined with honey and beeswax, the resin forms a “gum” that can be used for a sore throat and common cold.
Pine resin glue
How to make: Heat the resin (gently, don’t burn it) until it softens to a liquid and while doing so, crush some charcoal from the fire. When the resin is in liquid form already, remove from heat and mix it with the powdered charcoal. Dip two sticks repeatedly on the mixture until it forms a ball point structure at the end of the sticks. The glue will harden when stored. To use, heat the mixture until pliable. Here are some possible uses:
6. Fix shoe soles.
7. Repair bottle containers.
8. Form fishhooks.
9. Waterproof boot holes.
10. Cover up damage in tarps and tents.
11. Use it as a fire starter in damp conditions.
12. Extends the burn time of torches or bonfires.
13. Create a lamp.
Tree resins are valuable gems of the wilderness. We discovered an amazing small business (no affiliation) with an expert in tree resins who makes medicinal salves from them – this is great: http://themiraclesalve.com/
If you are searching for your own resin – a little consideration to take is that when you are in a situation where you will need the benefits of it, do not purposely cut a pine tree unless you really have to. Look first for some fallen pine tree limbs/trunks around and just take as much as you need from the places where it has already oozed out.
This Crazy Off Grid Device Literally Makes Drinkable Water From Fresh Air:
According to NASA, the U.S. is expecting a 100-YEAR LONG MEGADROUGHT.
It's already begun. Ask the farmers in California. They know.
Every survivalist knows that water is of critical importance. You NEED an independent water source that you can count on!
As an interesting "survival rehearsal" - imagine that you turned the tap on right now and nothing came out. How long would you last?
But what if there was another water source literally hidden in plain sight. That's right, I'm talking about the atmosphere!
The amazing thing about getting water from the natural moisture in the air... is that it is ALWAYS available.
This gives you real water security!

Most People Don't Have The Guts To Try This:
An amazing discovery in an abandoned house in Austin, Texas: A lost book of amazing survival knowledge, believed to have been long vanished to history, has been found in a dusty drawer in the house which belonged to a guy named Claude Davis.
Remember... back in those days, there was no electricity... no refrigerators... no law enforcement... and certainly no grocery store or supermarkets... Some of these exceptional skills are hundreds of years of old and they were learned the hard way by the early pioneers.
We've lost to history so much survival knowledge that we've become clueless compared to what our great grandfathers did or built on a daily basis to sustain their families.
Neighbors said that for the last couple of years Claude has tried to unearth and learn the forgotten ways of our great-grandparents and claimed to have found a secret of gargantuan proportions. A secret that he is about to reveal together with 3 old teachings that will change everything you think you know about preparedness:
What REALLY Happens When You Bury a Shipping Container? (Hint: It's A Bit Crazy...)
Shipping containers are all the rage - but if you are thinking about buying one, you MUST watch this video first:
Do not, I repeat do NOT do what these lunatics did! Can you spot the "fatal mistake" they made?
There's a general belief that if you bury a shipping container you can create an awesome root cellar / storm shelter / survival bunker.
But is a shipping container strong enough to handle the pressure?

I Can't Help Showing This Off:
If you haven't heard of Claude Davis yet do yourself a huge favor and watch this video.
One of the smartest guys I ever had the pleasure of meeting, Claude set-up a unique prepping system that changed his life forever.
I already tried it myself and let me tell... you I was completely blown away... His surprising tactics could make your life easier and give you the peace of mind you deserve.
Don't just take my word for it... watch his short video and decide for yourself.
