Gum spirits of turpentine and kerosene have a long history as natural remedy options for a variety of health ailments. Kerosene (also known as paraffin oil) is a crude oil distillate used for lighting, heating, etc. Turpentine is distilled from pine tree resin (though mineral turpentine is another petroleum distillate).
CAUTION: Though there is a long tradition of its use as an anti-fungal, pest killer, and first aid treatment in folk medicine, ingesting kerosene can be deadly in large enough quantities. Turpentine and kerosene can each do damage to the kidneys and nervous system; their vapors can hurt the eyes and respiratory system.
Home Remedies: Turpentine and kerosene have long been used to treat lice infestations, to flush parasites from the digestive tract, and to soothe sore joints and muscles as well as for use as an expectorant and to open the lungs as with a chest rub (mixed with an oil base). More recently, gum spirits of turpentine is being used in Anti-Candida protocols.

I have been using turpentine and honey to treat severe arthritis for over a week but haven't seen any results as yet.
I'm using Klean Strip (from hardware store) but have ordered more from Georgia, I believe..Mountain something?) Is there a difference between the two? I have been using a 1:1 ratio of 1 tsp honey to 1 tsp turp. Should I up the dosage? How long can I expect to see results?
Also, I've read some mention "Bill." How would I contact him for more information? Thanks
