Not that I want to advertise it, just to say that the product can still be bought 132 years later.

For good reasons. Pine tar has been shown to be antipruritic, anti‐inflammatory, antibacterial and antifungal. Good for skin maladies. I wish that little pine tree seedling in my backyard hadn't been chewed off by the animals. I still have an eastern redcedar ((Juniperus virginiana) in back. I planted it a few years ago, and it has survived neglect and being next to a wire fence that someone put up after I planted it. Still growing handily, despite being in more shade than it would have preferred.

I love white pines. The clusters of needles look like soft green clouds from a distance.

And you can use the tar to stick your hair back and prevent baldness?

I agree. Every time I smell the floral perfume from someone across the road, I wonder how bad it would be if COVID were that contagious.
