How Camphor Oil Can Benefit Your Health

One of the most popular natural herbal ingredients in many of Solstice Products is camphor essential oil. This oil is derived and extracted from several types of camphor trees. One of these is the Common Camphor tree, and the other is the Borneo Camphor tree. The oil that is extracted from both of these trees are very similar. However, they each have a slightly different aroma.

Some of the compounds that are found in camphor oil include:

  • Alcohol
  • Borneol
  • Camphone
  • Pinene
  • Terpene
  • Safrol

Camphor oil is a very effective stimulant, which increases activity in the circulatory system. This property is what allows the oil to help to improve circulation. The oil also can stimulate the metabolism and digestion.

Camphor oil serves as a fine disinfectant as well as an insecticide and germicide. A bottle of camphor oil that is left open, or cloth that is soaked in the oil and then burned, is good to keep insects away.

Camphor as an Anesthetic

One of the best uses for camphor oil is as an anesthetic. When it is rubbed into the skin, it causes a degree of numbness in the nerves in the area where it is applied. This causes pain in that area to be reduced, thus making it effective for muscle aches and also sore joints.

The cooling, penetrative effects of this oil make it very effective as an anti-inflammatory. It can be used to help with many types of inflammation in the body. It also helps to relax both the mind and the body while providing a feeling of freshness and peace.

Camphor oil, as it helps to stimulate the circulatory system, increases blood circulation in the affected part of the body. Increasing the blood circulation helps to wash away toxins in the area and can reduce pain temporarily. The increasing blood flow also helps to bring other ingredients in balms and oils to the painful area, which increases their effects.

Respiratory Relief

Camphor oil also can be effective to relieve minor respiratory issues, such as coughing, sore throat and nasal congestion. Some products can be purchased that you rub into the chest area, which causes that area to warm and some pain can be alleviated. The vapors that are released also can help to reduce congestion and cough.
