Borneo Camphor, also known as Sumatran camphor, is derived from a tall evergreen tree native to southern Asia that naturally exudes a fragrant resin. To craft our true 'oil of camphor' the resin of these gigantic wild trees is carefully harvested from the producers property and processed by steam distillation. Borneo camphor has a long history of medicinal use in addition to being highly sought after in the production of perfumes and incenses.
