Precautions & Warnings: Camphor crystals ( Cinnamomum camphora products ) can be toxic and potentially lethal when swallowed! They can cause seizures and convulsions! Any mention of the medicinal applications of this substance or any other natural incense products or crystals derived from plants and other organic sources is based on either topical use, or careful and precise applications that utilize schulz law. Schulz law states that small doses stimulate, moderate doses inhibit, and large doses kill. Certain substances have a very low lethal dose, so don't be confused. It's only to be used by highly educated professionals who know what they are doing! Conduct much research before using anything and know your substances!
These natural Camphor crystals ( from the Cinnamomum camphora tree), are ethically sourced from nature. Organic scents like this are alternatives to the fake "stick incense" that some prefer. It's very vauable for people who practice alternative healing. The aroma of this naturally occuring chemical resembles menthol from the mint species very closely. These crystals are obtained naturally without the use of harsh or toxic chemicals. All products mentioned here on Botanical Guides are ethically harvested with full respect to future generations.
Many people fail to realize what a powerful pharmacy nature has become. These plants are literally taking energy produced by the sun, capturing co2 from air, and producing miraculous pharmacological wonders in the process. The amount of scholarly research that's been conducted on these plants and their constituents will blow your mind. So if you think alternative medicine is bogus, then I suggest doing some further research, and from scholarly sources. I guarantee you that the facts are out there, and from reliable sources. If this weren't true, then phytochemicals wouldn't be so in demand by modern industries. Camphor crystals are making a lot of companies a lot of money. This is because they are used in every day products that you can find at local retail stores like Wal-Mart.
Chemically, the plant Cinnamomum camphora is chalked full of other volatile chemical compounds that make these crystals potentially valuable for human beings ( phytochemistry ). Volatile is a term that desribes compounds that can be vaporized. This tree contains camphor, linalool, 1,8-cineole, nerolidol, safrole, and borneol. Safrole is also present in Sassafrass root. Camphor is one of the mainly prized compounds present in the species. It is a white crystalline substance that has a history of use in alternative medicine, and in a spiritual context at ceremonies as a sacred incense. It's also useful as an insect repellant and for killing flea's.
Traditionally this valuable volatile constituent has been used in culinary arts, as a flavoring in confections, as a medicinal anesthetic with anti-microbial properties, and in Hindu religious ceremonies. It's the active ingredient in a lot of mainstream products like Vicks VapoRub. Now that you know, the secret ingredient in these products is out. Go tell it on the mountain. :) Remember, Camphor can be a safe and natural treat, or it can also be lethal. This doesn't mean be afraid of it, because you've probably used it already in your life. Be careful and know how much is too much.
