Camphor essential oil (white) has antiseptic properties. It is particularly useful for oily skin types or in blends for muscular aches and pains.

There are anti-itch gel and cooling gels with camphor as the active ingredient. Camphor is an active ingredient (along with menthol) in vapor-steam products, such as Vicks VapoRub. It is also found in clarifying masks used for skin.

Camphor is a waxy, white or transparent solid with a strong, aromatic odor. It is a terpenoid with the chemical formula C10H16O. It is found in wood of the camphor laurel (Cinnamomum camphora), a large evergreen tree found in Asia (particularly in Borneo and Taiwan, hence its alternate name).

Oils4life camphor essential oil (white) originates from China and is extracted by steam distillation of the wood, root stumps and branches. Camphor essential oil (white) is a member of the Lauraceae family and is also referred to as laurus camphora, true camphora, hon-sho, laurel camphor, gum camphor, Japanese camphor or formosa camphor.

Safety: Camphor essential oil (white) is relatively non-toxic and non-irritating.
