Pine needles are a magical medicine that happens to grow for FREE, EVERYWHERE, ALL YEAR LONG! They one of nature’s highest sources of Vitamin C with approximately 300 times more Vitamin C then oranges! Vitamin C is essential for boosting immunity and fighting infection and is great to protect yourself during the winter months. Many of the Vitamin C supplements sold at the store are actually ascorbic acid (read the ingredient label to find out and see for yourself) which is SYNTHETIC vitamin C and can cause kidney stones with long term use.
Pine needles are also one of nature’s highest sources of Sulfur which is known as the BEAUTY mineral! Nearly ALL humans are deficient in Sulfur. Sulfur is ANTI-AGING and prevents wrinkles, repairs damaged skin, and regrows collagen! In large amounts Sulfur can quickly reverse the aging process and give a youthful appearance. Again, most stores will sell you SYNTHETIC sulfur such as MSM. Yes, there are non-synthetic forms, but the most natural, safe and effective is found un-processed in nature, in its original form such as Pine Needles! And guess what? They are FREE!
I also protect my children during the winter months by infusing their baby milk with Pine Needle juice. My 4 year old Rosalie, who recently started full-time at daycare, during the winter months, came home with an ear infection. The pine needle juice killed the infection, and the pain was completely gone in less then 4 hours. This is what I use instead of pharmaceutical drugs. And it more then works 😉
I personally fasted on pine needle juice, living Free on wild herb juice for 3 weeks, and I have never felt so healthy and high in my life! Consistent energy the entire time! And damn, I felt so beautiful on the inside and out.
If you want to make pine needle juice, then I don’t recommend the juicer OR brewing it on the stove. You don’t get as much out of it. I recommend blending it with some water inside a high power blender and straining it through a nut milk bag. To learn how, check out my video! Enjoy 🙂
Hi, thanks for this very inspiring post. I have a question for you. You are talking about the Meyer lemon in the first part of the video but you do not show us in the video what you do with it in relation to the pine needle juice. Do you add some lemon juice to this drink?
I usually put half the lemon (including the rind) inside the blender with the pine needles. I blend it all together and strain it through the nut milk bag. Or you could simply squeeze the lemon juice into the mixture. Either way works. 🙂
Does it mater what species of pine tree you gather from ?
All pine trees are juice-able. But not all trees with needles. There are many trees with needles that are NOT pine. Make sure you are only using needles from pine trees. And all pine tree species are edible.
