How Camphor is Used in Mountain Ice
Originating from a tree in Asia, Camphor has been used for centuries to relieve pain! The oil extracted from the wood is widely used today in gels, lotions, creams, balms, and salves. Similar to Menthol, Camphor works by cooling the skin and numbing the area that blocks pain signals to the brain. It is extremely powerful when used for pain relief. In fact, Camphor is so effective that it has been praised for having a multitude of uses, such as: an anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, antifungal, antispasmodic, and even an anti-aging agent!
Camphor is a well-established folk remedy, and is commonly used. As discussed, Camphor is used topically to increase local blood flow and act as a counterirritant, which reduces pain and swelling. Some people use Camphor topically to treat respiratory tract diseases and to treat heart disease symptoms. Camphor is also used topically as an eardrop, and for treating minor burns. Some people even inhale Camphor to reduce coughing.
Camphor improves blood circulation and helps detoxify muscle tissue. Camphor also stimulates nerve endings, which cause a relief in symptoms such as, pain and itching when it's applied to the skin. Camphor is also active against fungi that cause infections in the toenails.
Camphor is FDA approved as a chest rub in concentrations less than 11%. It is also FDA approved for the use on the skin as a pain reliever in concentrations of 3% - 11%, as well as for use on the skin to help itching or irritation.
