The word camphor derives from the Malay word kapur, meaning "camphor tree." Camphor is made from the oils of trees found in Asia (usually camphor laurel). When purchased, it generally is available in block form as a white, transparent, waxy, crystalline solid with a penetrating aroma. There are many ways to use camphor. Some common ones include:
Camphor is easily crushed with your fingers, and sprinkled over hot charcoals in a brazier.
Or, take a small pot (which will be used only for this purpose from that point on) and put a square of camphor into it. Heat up the pot until the camphor turns into a liquid. At that point take it off the stove and walk around the rooms of your house and let the scent permeate the environment.
"We must have our homes clean in the physical world as well as in the Astral. Garbage bins are always filled with infected larvae. There exist odoriferous substances which burn larvae or "throw them out" of your house. The disinfection can be made with Belladonna, Camphor and Saffron." —Samael Aun Weor, Esoteric Medicine and Practical Magic
"Camphor is utilized in order to perfume and attract success." —Samael Aun Weor, Tarot and Kabbalah
Be aware that the smoke from camphor can irritate your eyes, so keep it away from your face. It may be too strong to burn near young children or pets.
Camphor products are toxic and especially dangerous to young children. Mouthing or eating camphor can cause seizures. Applying balms or ointments in large amounts and adding it to the water of a room humidifier may also cause children to seize. Other symptoms of poisoning include stomachache, nausea, vomiting, irritability and agitation. The onset of symptoms may occur very quickly - as early as 5 to 20 minutes.
Camphor is also a fire hazard. It should be kept away from heat, including hot water and microwaves. Never add camphor to water humidifiers or place in bowls with hot water. Heating camphor can cause splattering and result in burns.
