White Camphor Cinnamomum camphora - China
Essential Oil - 5 mL
White Camphor essential oil is obtained from steam distillation of wood chips. The designation of 'white' camphor means that it is the first distillation fraction. Camphor essential oil is used as an antiseptic and anti-inflammatory, and has been used against flu and other infectious illnesses. Camphor essential oil is not quite as pungent as Eucalyptus, but can be used in a very similar manner. Blend it with Eucalyptus, Peppermint, Rosemary or Chamomile. Camphor Essential Oil holds well in soap.
