Camphor Essential Oil
Camphor has been used in religious ceremonies in India for centuries due to its powerful cleansing properties. When applied to the crown energy centers, it will help cleanse and revitalize the spiritual energies. Camphor oil also provides several health benefits, including relieving congestion, pain relief, and an insect repellant. This strong essential oil does require care when using, and should never be taken internally.
When suffering from bronchitis or other respiratory issues, two to three drops in a diffuser or humidifier can open the airways. Use camphor oil in a cold compress to relieve pain from muscle aches, sprains, or bruises. Adding two to three drops to a diffuser will also repel insects such as mosquitoes. Camphor is also soothing to the skin, but must be mixed with lanolin or other similar base before applying to the skin. You should always make sure to check for sensitivity before applying to large areas to minimize discomfort.
