Camphor has been used medicinally for centuries to treat many skin conditions, such as itching, irritation and pain.
It is a substance derived from the tree cinnamomum camphora, which is native to Vietnam, China and Japan. Medicinal use of camphor dates to 600 A.D.
You can use camphor to relieve skin itching or irritation or to control pain. Camphor is often found in rub-on products for cold sores, insect bites, stings, minor burns and haemorrhoids. You can use camphor as a rub to put directly onto your skin, or you can inhale it.
When used properly, camphor provides a cooling sensation and relieves symptoms such as pain, irritation and cough. You can use camphor in soothing backaches and muscle pain. To soothe skin conditions such as eczema or acne, camphor is used due to its ability to reduce redness and irritation.
