Camphor Camphor is used to make camphor incense, camphor incense sticks, camphor incense products, camphor essential oil, camphor oil, etc. You do not have to be a spiritual aspirant to understand the importance of camphor in the Orient, especially in India, where almost any form of religious activity or sacrament remains incomplete without the use of this perfumed product. In such cases of devotional worship, it is mainly used (burnt) to purify the atmosphere and promote meditation.

But it would be wrong to assume that camphor was absolutely a product of the East and the West remained ignorant of its origin and usage. Though not as a religious object, camphor and camphor oil were extensively used/recommended by Western herbalists and therapists, both for internal as well as topical use, for curing end number of ailments – a practice that survived and percolated even to the modern times.

What is Camphor?

Camphor or Kapooram is a white transparent, waxy and crystalline solid that can be naturally extracted from the bark and wood of camphor laurel trees or Cinnamomum Camphora found in Asia. This tradition of deriving camphor from the camphor laurel was carried out for many years, until chemists developed methods of synthetically preparing the product, a popular method being manufacturing camphor from oil of turpentine.
