Pine Rosin

Pine Rosin
Pine rosin is a solid form of resin obtained from pine trees. It is semi-transparent and varies in colour from yellow to black. At room temperature it is brittle, but it melts at stove-top temperature.

Pine rosin has a host of different uses, including hobbies/crafts (soap-making, candle-making), sealant, glue, varnish, incense, on stringed instruments, soldering fluxes, health and beauty supplies and home remedies.

Pine rosin is a key ingredient in food wraps it makes the wraps behave more closely to plastic cling wrap, which is what most people are trying to find a replacement for.

  • Great product
    First time buying from NZ Soap and Candle. I found this excellent quality - crushed down really easily and dissolved better than previous rosin I've had. Will be back when I need more.

  • First experience with Pine Resin
    I made beeswax wraps for my first time and so had to get some pine resin to make them properly. This product was great for the job. The delivery was quick and I have no reservation about ordering again or recommending to others.
