Larch turpentine is an oily substance taken from the trunk of a Larix decidua tree.
Larch turpentine is applied to the skin for treating nerve pain, joint pain, boils, fevers, colds, cough, bronchitis, tendency toward infection, blood pressure problems, and mouth and throat swelling and pain (inflammation).
When applied to the skin, larch turpentine can increase blood flow and prevent the growth of bacteria.
Insufficient Evidence for:
Blood pressure problems.
Swelling (inflammation) of the mouth and throat.
More evidence is needed to rate the effectiveness of larch turpentine for these uses.
Larch turpentine seems safe when used on unbroken skin. It might be UNSAFE when taken by mouth, applied to damaged or broken skin, or inhaled. When used improperly, larch turpentine can cause side effects such as allergic skin reactions, kidney problems, nerve system damage, or lung problems.

Pregnancy and breast-feeding: Not enough is known about the use of larch turpentine during pregnancy and breast-feeding. Stay on the safe side and avoid use.
