Sierra thanks for message. I have had no problems doing full body liniment use of pure turpentine for 5 days now. I tried ingesting 3 drops in water and got nausea so maybe for me now, the topical use is best. Also I see no need for carrier oil since no reactions, not even skin redness. It makes me feel good and makes my skin feel tingly. I have fibromyalgia and I think it's helping. Going to try ingesting again with carrier at some point.
Topical Application of Turpentine
I am new to turp and began by liberally dousing myself with several straight teaspoons rubbed all over. No skin issues with that and noticed some systemic relaxation. I'm wondering about the efficacy of this application for internal benefits as well since it's a solvent like dmso and enters the bloodstream thereby. Any thoughts?
