True Borneo Camphor is an extremely rare find and an unusual essential oil with wonderful properties and a beautiful scent.
Kapur, or Borneo Camphor Tree (Dryobalanops aromatica) is a gigantic tree. It is a tropical rainforest tree known for its hardwood and resin production. Its species name aromatica refers to the camphor resin produced by its bark, and was once prized by merchants around the world, with a price higher than gold! Almost all that is on the market is synthetic and near identical synthetics can be produced cheaply and easily. With that being said....
There is something very special about true Borneo Camphor derived from Dryobalanops aromatica. We source True Borneo Camphor from Dryobalanops aromatica trees growing on pristine property in Jiangxi Province, China. It is actually beneficial to be harvesting these tress in this particular area.
