Turpentine as a medicine:
Long ago Turpentine was used to help cure health problems and diseases. It was mostly used to treat and prevent lice infestations. Turpentine can also be used to alleviate basic throat and nasal problems when mixed with animal fat.

Scientist are also exploring turpentine's use as an anti-bacterial agent.
Turpentine's many medical uses are still being explored to this day.
Turpentine is also used as a source of raw materials in the synthesis of fragrant chemical compounds. Commercially used camphor, linalool, alpha-terpineol, and are all usually produced from alpha-pinene and beta-pinene, which are two of the chief chemical components of turpentine. These pinenes are separated and purified by distillation.
The mixture of diterpenes and triterpenes that is left as residue after turpentine distillation is sold as rosin.
Turpentine and petroleum distillates such as coal oil and kerosene have been used medicinally since ancient times, as topical and sometimes internal home remedies. Topically it has been used for abrasions and wounds, as a treatment for lice, and when mixed with animal fat it has been used as a chest rub, or inhaler for nasal and throat ailments.
