Resins

Resins are better known as a thick liquid that hardens into an enamel-like finish. Most resins are used for production of items like varnishes and adhesives, including food glazing agents. This hydrocarbon secretion of the coniferous tree has a chemical property that can also be used as a raw material for incense and perfume.
 
The art of harvesting pine resin dates back to Gallo-Roman times. Resin is also sometimes confused with other liquids from plants like sap, latex, or mucilage. Saps in particular, has a nutritive function that is not available in resins. To date, there is no common view by the scientific community as to why plants secrete resins. Some scientists believe that resins are a waste product. However, their protective benefits to certain plants are widely accepted. This liquid is mostly found circulating throughout a coniferous tree in order to seal any damage to the tree.
 
Resin melts when heated and is soluble in alcohol and essential oils, but it is insoluble in water. It burns with a bright smoky flame. Harder resins are mostly used for varnishes and adhesives. This is while gum resins, which contain essential oils, are used more as therapeutic oils.
 
Resin is also used in many other household products like nail polish. It is believed that in the past both boxers and ballet dancers used crushed resin to their shoes to increase grip on slippery surfaces. This product was reportedly once used as a medium for sculpture.
