Extracted from the wood of the Laurus Camphora tree, this oil is famous for being used in vapor therapy to clear the lungs, and relieve sinus pressure and congestion in the lungs, bronchi, larynx, and nasal tracts. Camphor is also a natural anti-depresssant; burning some of the essential oil can help to calm the nerves, relieve anxiety, and reduce panic attacks. This oil is antibacterial, antiseptic, and a natural disinfectant. Ancient cultures used a drop of camphor oil in drinking water to disinfect it, particularly during the summer. It can also drive away insects and kill lice or parasitic bugs. If you are suffering from an inflammation or skin disorder, adding a few drops of camphor oil to your bath water will help to cool and soothe your skin, while reducing inflammation.
