Camphor - Cinnamomum camphora

Camphor has a strong, penetrating, fragrant odour, a bitter, pungent taste, and is slightly cold to the touch like menthol. Locally it is an irritant, numbs the peripheral sensory nerves, and is slightly antiseptic. It is not readily absorbed by the mucous membrane, but is easily absorbed by the subcutaneous tissue. Its great value is in colds, chills and in all inflammatory complaints. Camphor is used externally as a counter-irritant in rheumatisms, sprains and in inflammatory conditions. It relieves irritation of the sexual organs. Well-known preventative of moths and woodworm
