          White Camphor is a very powerful oil. It can be a great value for its price and strength but is considered to be too strong to be used in a full body massage. Even at very low concentrations of about 0.4% it can cause excitability or irritation to people with sensitive skin. It is more often added in small amounts in muscle rubs or in inhalers. It is a popular ingredient in inhalers for it's sharp scent and awakening qualities. In small amounts Camphor’s effect on the central nervous system is very awakening. Stronger concentrations may cause excitability to convulsions, so go easy on this powerful oil.
