Camphor – Terpene Profile
Camphor is a terpene that is distilled from the Camphor Tree, though it is also found in spiced fruit, vegetables and herbs such as raspberry, apricot and ginger. Thanks to its woody, minty flavors, Camphor is a common ingredient in desserts and beverages. Like other terpenes with a strong menthol-like aroma, Camphor is an expectorant and has been shown to improve congestion and respiratory conditions. That same aroma is what makes Camphor such an effective insect-repellant. Among the terpene’s other documented therapeutic benefits are its anti-inflammation and anti- infection properties along with its ability to improve circulation and sex drive.
