Aromatic applications of Camphor are also beneficial for those with tremors, and respiratory congestion. Aromatic use of Camphor also helps to boost the libido.
Internal: Add 3 drops of Camphor oil to your water (at least 8 oz) to disinfect it. Camphor can be used internally for circulation, inflammation, digestion, or a metabolism boost by putting 3 drops into an empty capsule with at least 6 drops of Black Cumin Seed. Alternatively, 3 drops of Camphor can be put into at least 8 oz of water/juice/tea. Always use a glass container.
Precautions: Camphor oil usually is distilled into 3 grades. Each grade contains different levels of the constituent safrole, a suspected carcinogen.
The lightest grade is known as camphor white, which usually contains only trace quantities of safrole. It is therefore generally not regarded as carcinogenic.
The two heavier grades known as yellow and brown camphor do contain higher quantities of safrole and are regarded as carcinogenic, and thus should be avoided.
