MAGICKAL USES OF PINE SAP
Pine sap has been used in natural remedies and it’s been burned to fuel fires for thousands of years. Pine sap has many practical and magickal uses which makes it an excellent collection to your magickal supply closet!
Harvesting Pine Sap
Pine sap oozes out of pine trees when the tree is injured. The sap is the way the pine tree heals itself. When harvesting the sap, make sure not to harvest too much. Only harvest from pine trees where there is a lot of sap build-up and leave enough so that the tree’s wound is left well covered by sap. Always thank the tree after harvesting your sap. I’ll usually leave an offering behind as well.
Pine sap is excellent to use in purification, protection and healing spells & rituals. When burned as an incense, pine will remove any negative/incorrect energy from a space. The aroma of pine sap incense also helps to relieve stress and to put a worried mind at ease. Carry some pine sap in a mojo bag to psychically protect yourself.
You can use pine sap as a natural glue to hold together magickal crafts for offerings or ritual. If your candles won’t stop tilting in their holder, placing pine sap under them will hold the candle in it’s place! Pine sap is waterproof so it can also be used to mend small cracks in terra-cotta planters or offering bowls.
Next time you are out on your nature walk, harvest some pine sap! The pine sap in the photo above is some that I’ve recently harvested.
Peace, Love & Magick
