PINE TAR SALVE For Eczema and Psoriasis

(14 customer reviews)

Pine Tar Salve. It’s old fashioned. It’s Black. Pine tar has been used in medicine for more than 2000 years to treat a range of skin conditions because of its soothing and antiseptic properties. It is considered a drawing salve for splinters because it softens skin and helps get the splinter out. It would be a perfect salve but did I mention it’s black?


PINE TAR SALVE For Eczema and Psoriasis



Pine Tar is a old-fashioned treatment for eczema and psoriasis. This salve goes beyond treating eczema and psoriasis with Pine Tar soap, which is great for dry, itchy scalp but less impactful on really itchy spots on body. This is where Pine Tar Salve can come in. My customers have reported immediate relief for dry, itchy patches using my pine tar salve.

Topical Pine Tar for Eczema and Psoriasis

Here is a wonderful summation of the history of using Pine Tar for skin conditions


  • Organic Extra Virgin Coconut Oil
  • Apricot Oil infused with Chamomile, Calendula, Comfrey and Gotu Kola Herbs
  • Pine Tar
  • Beeswax
  • Shea Butter
  • Organic Neem Oil
  • Wheatgerm Oil
  • Sea Buckthorn Oil
  • Activated Charcoal
  • Lemon Eucalyptus Essential Oil
  • Sweet orange Essential Oil
  • Rosemary Essential Oil,
  • Cedarwood Essential Oil
  • Vit. E.


As you probably know, Organic Extra Virgin Coconut Oil is rich in antioxidants and fatty acids. It has been shown to decrease topical bacteria colonization in eczema sufferers. In fact, try Extra Virgin Coconut Oil first before purchasing this or other more complex products, medications or salves to see how effective it is, especially if treating a child with eczema.

Pine Tar stimulates skin growth, Reduces itch and inflammation and is used as an alternative to topical steroids.
According to the Tao of herbs, the FDA has approved pine tar as a treatment for mild psoriasis. In 1991, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration said the amount used in over-the-counter products is safe.

I use Apricot Oil to infuse 4 important healing herbs in because it is easily absorbed into skin and is less likely than sweet almond oil to cause allergic reactions.

Calendula has been proven to reduce inflammation and preventing skin dermatitis.

Comfrey leaf has anti inflammatory and analgesic effects. Comfrey also stimulates tissue regeneration, and speeds healing.

Chamomile is 60% as effective as 0.25% hydrocortisone cream. Chamomile flavonoids and essential oils penetrate below the skin surface into the deeper skin layers

Gotu Kola is a traditional healing herb from asia for skin conditions, including eczema, psoriasis and dermatitis. it is one of the reported ?miracle elixirs of life? known over 2000 years ago

Neem Oil is an incredible oil with strong antibacterial, antiviral and antifungal components and has been used in India to treat skin ailments for hundred of years.

Sea Buckthorn is a “super” oil with extraordinarily rich levels of Vit. C as well as carotenoids, Vit., E and Vit. K. – all excellent for skin health.

Wheatgerm is high in essential fatty acids, protein and Vit E which all go a long way to hydrate cracked, flakey, dry skin.

Unrefined yellow shea butter retains all the rich ingredients Africans have been using to treat dry, itchy skin for millennia.

Activated Charcoal Is full of tiny holes so it can collect bad things like bacteria and toxins.

While few studies have been made proving the efficacy of essential oils in treating eczema, certain essential oils are frequently referred to by the essential oil and eczema pundits, including Sweet orange, Essential Oil, Lemon Eucalyptus, Rosemary and Cedarwood. I suspect the lemon Eucalyptus ans sweet orange are good antibacterials, Rosemary and cedarwood may sooth skin and stimulate skin healing.

A few notes regarding Pine Tar Salve
The Pine Tar I purchase is an extra heavy pine tar sourced from a Swedish pine. Pine Tar is 100% pine tar; nothing else is added, no fillers, no additional chemicals, just 100% pine tar. According to the manufacturer, the manner in which the Pine Tar is processed is proprietary.
This Pine Tar salve is strong and is not recommended for children or pets. (For them try my milder Black African Soap first). Also, it does use pine tar and activated charcoal as important ingredients so could stain light colored clothing and sheets. Finally, the salve definitely smells like pine tar and Lemon Eucalyptus.

    I’m amazed! Pine Tar Salve. I’ve had eczema on my right elbow forever. I dipped my elbow into this jar of Pine Tar Salve and I’ll be darned! The next morning I woke up with the softest elbow minus the eczema for the first time in years!

    I have atopic dermatitis and this salve is wonderful. It has a healing quality and my dermatologist approves it as well. Pine tar helps to reduce inflammation of the skin so I am all for that! And a little goes a long way so a small jar will last me quite a while!
