Pine:

Pine bark makes a great band aid! Use the fresh inner bark and tie it around the wound. If you are bleeding, wash the wound with detol (as stated in an above post), cover it with sphagnum moss and then the inner bark of pine as the outer bandage.

Black Birch Tree

Poison Ivy or skin rashes: Boil the twigs from a Black Birch Tree. Make a strong tea out of it and then let it cool. Apply it to the affected area, repeating several times after it dries. The young leaves used fresh and the bark of the twigs are the main medicinal parts of a black birch. Drying the leaves for later use does not work unfortunately. I have only known this tree to work when the parts are used fresh.

Sedative: Make a strong tea from the leaves and twigs and drink when stressed and needing sleep. It induces a good night’s sleep and calms the nerves.

Pain: Boil the bark and twigs to release the oil and apply this to sore muscles and strains to relieve pain.

Sweetgum

You can chew the hardened sap from a wound in a Sweetum Tree as a gum for fresh breath. As a child, chewing gum was not something we got except on holidays like Christmas and our birthday. We would always grab a “glob” of sap from the Sweetgum Tree as we were on the way to the barn to milk the cow.

The inner bark of the Tree can be boiled with milk and used to relieve diarrhea. Oil from the leaves of the Tree is great for killing bacteria and viruses. This may be taken orally or the oil taken from the leaves and placed on wounds to prevent infection.

Oak

Tannic Acid from Acorns

When leaching the tannic acid from your acorns, do not dispose of the water. It has many medicinal properties and you will be tossing out a gold mine of opportunity.

Store the water in a tight container in your refrigerator and use this for a mouthwash if you happen to get ulcers in your mouth. You can use this water as a skin wash for sores, cuts, etc. as well and it will help kill the bacteria causing infection and help heal the wound. You can use this water also as an insect repellent when spending time outdoors, it is great for insect bites.

Save the water from the 2nd and 3rd boiling to use as an enema for hemorrhoids.
