The camphor tree, also known as the camphorwood, is considered a “secret weapon” that has been used since ancient times to repel mice and insects. Nowadays, camphor has been researched and manufactured into essential oil form for various convenient uses. Let’s explore camphor essential oil with PEROMA through the following article.


The camphor tree, also known as the Hoary laurel or scientifically as Cinnamomum camphora Prels, is a tree that yields an organic compound known as camphor.

The camphor tree originates from East Asia, including Taiwan, southern Japan, southeastern China, Indochina, and it is also cultivated in the coastal areas of the Black Sea region of the Caucasus.

Camphor is a type of large woody tree with a wide canopy and evergreen leaves throughout the year, reaching heights of 20-40 meters and diameters of up to 200 centimeters. The tree trunk is sturdy with slightly rough bark and longitudinal cracks and spots.

The Camphor tree originates from China and Japan. Nowadays, it is widely cultivated in many tropical and subtropical countries. In Vietnam, Camphor trees are predominantly grown in the northern provinces. In places like Cao Bang, Lang Son, and Lai Chau, there are even trees estimated to be up to 100 years old.


Camphor essential oil is extracted from the Camphor tree, a common tree in Asia, especially in Japan, Taiwan, and China. Initially prevalent in China, this tree gradually spread to Sri Lanka and India.

Camphor essential oil is produced in three different types: white, brown, and yellow. Among these, the white oil is used for therapeutic and aromatic purposes. The other two types contain high concentrations of safrole, with brown oil containing 80% and yellow oil containing 20%, which are considered carcinogenic and toxic. In contrast, white camphor oil contains only a small amount of safrole, thus avoiding the associated risks.

Camphor essential oil is one of the valuable oils widely produced and used in Vietnam. It is extracted entirely from the leaves and branches of the Camphor tree, with a high concentration and valuable nutrient components, suitable for both the elderly and children, hence gaining trust from many users. However, different purposes require different ways of using camphor oil to achieve the best results.


Camphor essential oil offers many useful effects in daily life and healthcare.

For health

Firstly, its antiseptic and anti-inflammatory effects on the skin are very effective. Instead of taking antibiotics, which may lead to antibiotic resistance, camphor essential oil can be used as an excellent antibacterial agent. In traditional medicine, using camphor to heal wounds and treat fungal infections is a familiar and effective remedy.

Moreover, after several uses, it has been discovered that camphor essential oil has a safe nerve-stimulating effect. Unlike other nerve stimulants, it is easier to control, making users feel refreshed and alert. When used, it reduces fatigue, relieves anxiety and tension, while enhancing metabolism, stimulating circulation, and detoxifying through sweating. Therefore, for those suffering from colds, sneezing, runny noses, digestive issues, headaches, dizziness due to poor blood circulation, using a little camphor oil can significantly improve these conditions.

Additionally, camphor oil is also used for massage, relieving regular joint pain, muscle fatigue, etc.

For daily life

Camphor essential oil is considered as a nemesis to bacteria and mold. Nowadays, it is widely used as a potent antibacterial agent, especially in increasingly polluted environments. During rainy seasons, the prevalence of dirty water increases, making people more susceptible to bacterial skin infections.

The scent of this essential oil is regarded as clean and pleasant. If placed indoors, its faint aroma can alleviate stress, fatigue, clear nasal passages, and alleviate symptoms of stuffy nose and difficulty breathing.


For Massage, pain relief, and muscle fatigue

Using pure Camphor essential oil, massage the affected area gently (for about 15-20 minutes) to alleviate pain and muscle fatigue.

Stimulating the nervous system, promoting blood circulation

Dilute with carrier oil for full-body massage to stimulate the nervous system and promote good circulation.

Warming the body, dissolving bruises

Apply Camphor oil to both sides of the temples, neck, chest, spine, and abdomen. Apply directly to bruises and massage to dissolve them.

Repelling mosquitoes and insects

Apart from Camphor, Camphor oil also contains α-Terpineol and Eucalyptol. These are the main active ingredients found in Eucalyptus oil. Therefore, mosquitoes and insects are repelled by the scent of Camphor. Drop a few drops of Camphor oil into the water used to clean the floor. The scent of Camphor oil will drive mosquitoes out of the room.

Providing a sense of relaxation and refreshment

Moreover, the scent of Camphor essential oil is very pleasant and refreshing, helping you feel alert and invigorated. Adding 2-3 drops of oil to 50ml of water and using an oil diffuser will cleanse the air in the house, leaving you feeling comfortable, refreshed, and free from fatigue and worries.

Relaxing with Camphor essential oil

Camphor essential oil improves blood circulation and promotes a sense of well-being. Apply one of the following methods:

  • Add 2 drops to 2 liters of warm water for rinsing the body after bathing, stand in the bathroom for 1 minute, dry off, and dress.
  • Add 3 drops to a warm bath and soak for 10 minutes.
  • Mix 3 drops with 30ml of carrier oil (baby oil, coconut oil, avocado oil) for body massage.
