Camphor is a naturally occurring terpene found in the wood of the camphor laurel, a large evergreen native to parts of Asia. It can also be found in many other trees in the laurel family, and cannabis. Camphor has a very pungent aroma. It has been used for centuries, everything from being a flavoring in the food industry, a deterrent for pests, and in fireworks. Camphor has many medicinal benefits for humans as well. It is known to have both stimulating and sedating properties, as well as being anti-inflammatory, anti-arthritic, and anti-spasmodic. It is also considered to be a powerful aphrodisiac.
Extract Consultants first offered individual isolated terpenes to the market for both educational and creativity purposes, as people want to replace the entourage effect that is lost through the extraction process.
