- Method of Extraction:
Steam distillation of wood, root stumps and branches.
May irritate the skin or mucous membrane
Camphor is a traditional ingredient of mothballs and these can be made at home by adding 10 drops of White Camphor to a cotton wool ball and placing these in cupboards, drawers, etc. (They should be kept well out of the reach of children and pets.)
To keep other airborne pests at bay, try adding 5 drops of Camphor to a burner or diffuser.
Extracted by distillation from the wood of this evergreen tree, there are then three extractions made from Camphor – only White Camphor is safe for aromatherapy use as it contains no Safrol (unlike Yellow and Brown Camphor). White Camphor should still, however, be treated with caution and used in moderation.
Absolute Aromas sources, professionally packages and presents over 100 pure essential oils, 22 carrier oils and a wide range of aromatherapy accessories of the highest possible quality.
Each essential oil is sourced from established producers in the best country of origin for that particular oil. Every batch is subjected to rigorous testing by an experienced and qualified essential oils chemist, using methods such as gas chromatography.
The same strict standards are applied to the rest of the Absolute Aromas range. Carrier oils are, wherever possible, organically-produced, cold-pressed and of the freshest quality. The specialist infused carrier oils are hand-made using organically-produced plant material infused in organic Sesame oil. We believe that as carrier oils usually make up 98% of an aromatherapy blend, their quality has a very significant impact on the efficiency of the blend.
In folk tradition a lump of the camphor wood, would be worn around the neck as a protection for infectious diseases.
