Our Fatwood is a 100% natural product, without chemical additives and comes from the “heart” of the pine, thus the center of the tree and branches, the part of the trunk that has the highest content in natural resin.

Because of the flammability of terpene, fatwood is prized for use as kindling in starting fires. It lights quickly even when wet, is very wind resistant, and burns hot enough to light larger pieces of wood. A small piece of fatwood can be used many times to create tinder by shaving small curls and using them to light other larger tinder. The pitch-soaked wood produces an oily, sooty smoke, and it is recommended that one should not cook on a fire until all the fatwood has completely burned out.

Fatwood has been used since ancient times, as a source of light, because of the high resin quantity, the torches where lit for many strait hours. One other use of fatwood was tinder for the light up of fires. Resin makes it extremely flammable, a small piece is enough to start any fire in seconds. It is ideal for lighting fireplaces, wood stoves and BBQ’s. 

Human use of plant resins has a very long history that was documented in ancient Greece by Theophrastus, in ancient Rome by Pliny the Elder, and especially in the resins known as frankincense and myrrh, prized in ancient Egypt. These were highly prized substances, and required as incense in some religious rites.

The word resin comes from French resine, from Latin resina “resin”, which either derives from or is a cognate of the Greek ῥητίνη rhētinē “resin of the pine”, of unknown earlier origin, though probably non-Indo-European.

The word “resin” has been applied in the modern world to nearly any component of a liquid that will set into a hard lacquer or enamel-like finish. An example is nail polish. Certain “casting resins” and synthetic resins (such as epoxy resin) have also been given the name “resin.”

Some resins when soft are known as ‘oleoresins’, and when containing benzoic acid or cinnamic acid they are called balsams. Oleoresins are naturally occurring mixtures of an oil and a resin; they can be extracted from various plants. Other resinous products in their natural condition are a mix with gum or mucilaginous substances and known as gum resins. Several natural resins are used as ingredients in perfumes, e.g., balsams of Peru and tolu, elemi, styrax, and certain turpentines. Source: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Resin
