Pine, specifically white pine, has been used since the Middle Ages. The Native Americans taught early American settlers how to use the needles, bark, and sap in a variety of ways to keep them healthy. Pine is an antiseptic that can be used internally to support the body in a speedy recovery. In respiratory infections where thick mucus is present, it works to draw phlegm up and out of the lungs. So I thought of using it's medicinal properties in making the pine popsicles with its needles.
