This DIY Camphor oil has totally been my miracle product these past two months. I’ve been using this along with my usual aromatherapy diffuser oils. I was waiting to write up this post after experiencing its effects for a good time and today after finishing three quarters of the oil I made, I’m ready to write about its wonders.
We all know, that camphor is known for it’s antiseptic and disinfectant properties. It has been used to purify our surroundings and in traditional rituals for the longest time.
Along side, I have experienced its effectiveness in one of my worst nightmares. The worst thing to see is your child unable to sleep peacefully. My little one had a stuffy nose last week. The oil greatly helped in clearing blocked nasal passages of the baby, when he was having sleepless nights because the moment he used to lie, he found it difficult to breathe.
When I add camphor oil to my Chicco Respira Sano humidifier, it creates a soothing atmosphere in the room and aids us in a getting a peaceful sleep.
How I make it:
1 cup coconut (carrier) oil
2″ piece of synthetic camphor
Slightly warm the coconut oil and add powdered camphor. Mix well and immediately cover. Leave for 2 days for the camphor to diffuse into the oil. Use as required.
