Point of Interests
Growing up to 35 feet tall, the camphor tree is native to Japan, Taiwan and China. It takes 50 years before a camphor tree produces oil for extraction. Steam extracted, camphor oil becomes present in every part of the tree. Once used as a remedy against the plague in Persia, camphor essential oil has also been used in Iran for embalming purposes. Today, using advanced distillation techniques, three different types of camphor essential oil are produced- white, yellow, and brown. The yellow and the brown camphor oil contain a toxic substance called safrole and hence only white camphor is used for medicinal and aromatic purpose.
