Camphor oil is extracted from the gum resin of the leaves and contains a dextrorotatory ketone (d-camphora), a volatile oil, and other substances. The herb also known as gum camphor or laurel camphor is typically used externally. Its stimulant, rubefacient, diaphoretic, anti-septic, analgesic, and antiseptic properties make it an effective liniment for upper respiratory tract congestion, chilblains, and muscular aches and pains.
Camphor is primarily an oil created by dissolving the crystals in olive oil or some other neutral oil. It is then rubbed over the lung area for acute and chronic lung and bronchial affections, directly applied to the feet or hands to treat chilblains, used on cold sores and as a liniment for the support of muscular aches and pains. Since it is toxic and potentially fatal, only small doses should be taken internally. As such it is used for colds, diarrhea and other similar complaints. Toxic symptoms include vomiting, convulsions, palpitations.
