Warming, clearing, stimulating. An excellent warming oil during colder months which is also lovely in a steam inhalation. Useful added to a muscle rub blend. Camphor Essential Oil is a lovely oil to use during colder weather as it has a wonderful warming effect when used in massage solutions. It’s also great to inhale if you’re feeling bunged up from a cold (try adding a few drops to a bowl of steaming water.) Traditionally, it has been used as a deodorant, soothing agent, skin conditioner and muscle relaxant.
