Camphor Essential Oil has a number of wide-ranging applications and uses, including aromatherapy, massage therapy, and do-it-yourself cosmetics. Its lively aroma makes it an excellent natural fragrance to add to soaps, lotions, massage oils, natural perfumes, as well as homemade cleaning products.
Coop Coco is a Canadian retail and wholesale supplier of Camphor Essential Oil, a therapeutic grade essential oil that is steam distilled from the wood of the Camphor tree. Our bulk Camphor Essential Oil is sourced from China, and has a strong, penetrating aroma. Soap makers should note that it may accelerate trace.
Camphor essential oil has been known to cause skin irritation in sensitive individuals. It should also be avoided by epileptics. All essential oils should be used only after being diluted in a carrier oil. Do not take internally unless under the direct supervision of a qualified practitioner. Always perform a small patch test (with the diluted essential oil) before using on skin, to check for compatibility. We strongly advise caution when using essential oils around children and pregnant women.
