Health benefits of camphor

1. Camphor as a decongestant

A cold or a cough is easy to catch but very difficult to get rid of. If you are struggling from a stuffy nose and are unable to breathe properly, camphor is the solution. Simply adding camphor to hot water and inhaling it will make all the difference.

2. Fights fungus

Many body parts like toenails can easily get affected by fungus. Take a bowl of water and add some camphor to it. Then dip your feet in it. If done regularly, we guarantee you will be infection-free.

3. Lice removal

If you have kids, you will especially know the struggle involved in removing lice. The best non-medical and ayurvedic way to do this is by adding a piece of camphor to coconut oil and massaging it well on the scalp.

4. Fighting dengue and malaria

Along with the innumerable benefits it provides, camphor is also an efficient solution for keeping disease-spreading mosquitoes at bay. All you need to do is burn some camphor in your home, whilst keeping all the doors and windows shut.
