KinoRed Ointment 15ml
An old and rare ointment formula duly revived by wild-crafting our Angorphora sp. Rich in antimicrobial tannins to seal up and heal up, this resinous gum extract was a staple in medicine chests of old even before they knew what it contained and why it healed wounds so well.
Apple Gum resin was traditionally referred to as "Kino" in Australia and it is a beautiful brick red. Many trees produce resins, those of frankincense and myrrh being more famous. Amber is yet another example, though fossilised.
- Kino is a resin that weeps from certain types of trees - in this case, Apple Gums (Angophora floribunda). Tree resins have been used for millennia by native people as an antiseptic wound healer for cuts and sores; it also has a mild pain-relieving effect. It is also a beautiful, brick red colour. And if it can keep infection out of tree wounds, it has practical value to pp and clean, wounded skin.
- Preservative free, so please use clean, dry fingers to apply.
