Camphor in Mountain Ice Muscle Recovery Gel


Camphor oil, extracted from the bark of the camphor tree, has been approved by the FDA for a number of medical uses and has long been used as a natural remedy. In particular, it has a number of topical uses that are relevant to Mountain Ice Muscle Therapy Gel.

Pain Relief

Camphor's cooling action helps to numb the nerve endings in the skin, reducing pain and irritation. This is useful not only for the scrapes, bruises, and cuts that athletes may receive, but also for environmental skin damage. In particular, camphor has been used effectively for sunburn relief, something familiar to every athlete that pursues an outdoor sport.


Camphor's anti-inflammatory properties make it effective in reducing swelling from injury. Studies also indicate that it has the potential to help treat arthritis, which many veteran athletes may experience from the long-term stress placed on their joints.


Camphor has been found in studies to have antispasmodic qualities, making it a great option as a muscle rub that can help you relieve muscle cramps, pain, and stiffness.

Anti-Fungal Properties

Athlete's foot and other irritating, painful fungal infections have a huge impact on athletes, and spread easily in locker rooms and gyms. Camphor has been found to have strong antifungal properties, which can help prevent the spread of these infections.
