Larch Resin (Resina laricis)

A member of the pine family, the larch has the unusual quality of losing its needles each fall. The bark and its resin are used in herbal remedies. When used externally, it has a hyperemic and antiseptic effect due to the essential oil content (see PDR for Herbal Medicines, 2nd ed., p.457).
