What Does Pine Tar Soap Smell Like?
One thing people seem to disagree on is the exact scent of pine tar soap. But, one thing is certain... pine tar soap definitely has a potent smell. Some people like it, some actually love it, and others don’t like it at all. The aroma of pine tar soap has been likened to a campfire with smoky, woodsy notes. Other people think it just smells like a fresh pine tree. Some claim it smells like a BBQ sauce, with once again, a smoky scent. The best thing to do is buy a bar to find out what you think. If the fragrance fills your bathroom up and you feel it’s too potent, try storing the pine tar bar soap in a travel soap case. Or, you can buy the body wash so the product is kept inside its package. However, many people who do not enjoy the pine tar soap scent at first become used to it and end up thoroughly liking it. The benefits of using Grandpa’ Pine Tar Soap far outweigh the scent!
Is Pine Tar Soap Good for Eczema?
Pine tar soap is great for skin conditions like eczema which cause itching, dryness, scaling, and swelling. It helps calm irritated, itchy skin and reduces inflammation while adding moisture and nourishment to dry patches.

It can be used on pets too, especially when they suffer from allergic reactions to fleas or have itchy hot spots. Since pine tar soap also acts as an antiseptic, antibacterial, and antifungal agent while it cleans, it helps promote skin healing. Use Grandpa’s Pine Tar Soap as part of your daily hygiene routine to experience calm, comfortable skin.
