(Cinnamomum camphora)


This plant grows in temperate climates. It is a very difficult plant to kill and other plants will not usually grow well around it. The camphor is stored in the trunks and branches of the camphor trees.

It can be beneficial to keep colds and flu away as well as insects and moths. In fact camphor is renowned for it’s insect repellent attributes.

These days natural camphor has been replaced with a synthetic artificial version. This is reported to be highly toxic by Rudolf Breuss in his book called Cancer Leukaemia. He even says that this substance should not be anywhere in the home.
