The Camphor tree is the emblematic tree of the city of Hiroshima . It is the first, with Ginkgo biloba, to have resumed after the atomic bombing! Native to Southeast Asia , this tree, which can reach 25 meters, has become acclimatized to many other regions where it is considered an invasive species. 
Rich in purifying , cleansing and toning active ingredients , the essential oil is extracted from the bark  of the cineole chemotype of this tree, of which there are several "chemotypes" depending on the biochemical composition of the essential oils extracted from it.

Thus, it should be noted that the botanical name Cinnamomum camphora  also designates : - the essential oil of  Camphor CT cineole , obtained from the bark of the Chinese Camphor tree with cineole, which is the one we offer here.  

- the essential oil of  Camphor tree  CT camphor , obtained from the bark of the Chinese camphor tree with camphor, rich in  camphor  (aromatic ketone) and safrole, and which we do not offer because it is very delicate to use due to its toxicity.

- Ho Wood essential oil  , also called Shiu Wood  or Japanese Laurel , extracted from the leaves and branches of the linalool chemotype Chinese camphor tree, rich in  linalool  (aromatic alcohol).  

- Ravintsara essential oil , obtained from the leaves of the Camphor tree of Madagascar, rich in 1.8 cineole  (aromatic oxide) So many essential oils with very different compositions and therapeutic indications that it is necessary not to to confuse !
