Botanical Name: Cinnamomum camphora

Main Constituents:
1,8-Cineole: 38.5%

Plant Part: Wood

Origin: China

Processing Method: Steam Distilled and Vacuum Rectified

Description / Color / Consistency: This is a thin, colorless to pale yellow clear liquid.

Aromatic Summary / Note / Strength of Aroma: Camphor Essential Oil is a top note with a strong, penetrating, fragrant odor.

Blends With: Basil, Cajeput, Chamomile, Lavender, Melissa, and Rosemary.

Product Abstract: The tree can grow up to 35 meters (100 feet) and the camphor is found in every part of it. The Essential Oil is extracted by steam from the chipped wood, root stumps and branches, and is then rectified. White camphor oil is the first distillation's fraction. In China and Japan, Cinnamomum camphora must be at least 50 years old to produce oil, and can often grow as old as a thousand years. The wood has been used in the construction of temples and in ship-building because of its durability and aromatic properties.

Cautions: Dilute before use; for external use only. May cause skin irritation in some individuals; a skin test is recommended prior to use. Contact with eyes should be avoided.

Storage: It is recommended that oils packaged in metal containers (for safe shipping), be transferred into dark glass containers to maintain freshness and attain maximum shelf life.

Has a very strong and piercing aroma. I personally prefer this to the Eucalyptus odour. What I love about this one is that beneath the piercing smell, there's a nice woody undertone. After the top notes disappears, the wood becomes more prominent. A natural perfume.

Very therapeutic and medicinal. Very similar to Eucalyptus and Rosemary but without their herbal notes - this is pure camphor (as expected).

Lovely EO. A little goes a long way. I use it in my sinus diffuser blend, some cold/muscle balm, as well as a few soap blends. I love the smell of camphor, and this is exactly the smell I remember from my childhood.

Yep, this smells exactly like clean camphor. Like Rosemary or Eucalyptus without the herbal notes of those. Perfect for medicinal use (breathing/sinus/chest congestion)

This smells exactly how you would expect - like the camphorous notes of Rosemary or Eucalyptus without those herbal smells. I imagine it would be great in muscle rubs and especially chest rubs for chest colds. Personally I use those 3 interchangeably in my cold blends. My favorite though is Rosalina for the similar decongestant effect, but it is milder and sweeter than Camphor, Rosemary or Eucalyptus. (but pricier)

I used this with cajeput and menthol crystals in a muscle balm. Loved it. Worked so well that my mom is requesting more batches so I reordered a larger bottle!

Love this smell.. Takes me back to my childhood days in India. A little goes a long way. I put few drops on a cotton and smell it when I'm having cold and it feels so nice.

I really like this oil. At first I was intimidated by the scent, very strong. But it dilutes well, and blends well. Fresh, crisp, and actually not overpowering.

Added to an essential oil blend, a very small amount of this oil sharpens the scent and balances it out quite nicely. I was surprised when I first discovered this, as the scent directly from the bottle very "mothball-y". Excellent quality at a superb price.

Great oil that has many uses in soap making and blending for a variety of products. Very high quality. This high qualtiy Camphor oil has more uses that one can mention. Not only are all the Essential oils from New Directions of high quality and fair pricing, the information they provide on each oil far exceeds any other web supplier out there!
