CINNAMOMUM CAMPHORA OIL
The camphor tree:
Original habitat is East Asia. The evergreen tree reaches heights of about 30 meters. The bark is drawn yellowish brown and peels off in large pieces from the trunk. The bark of the branches, however, is bluish. The leaves sit alternate on the branches. They have a 2 to 3 cm long stem. The leaves are 6 to 12 cm long and about 2.5 to 5.5 cm wide. The upper leaf surface is green to yellow-green, smooth and has a leather-like surface. The bottom side of young leaves can be hairy. From April to May small white flowers, that sit in tufts on long stalks, open up. The flowers develop black, 10 to 12 mm sized stone fruits.
How organic camphor oil is produced:
The organic camphor oil (organic ravintsara oil) is obtained by water steam distillation of the crushed wood or leaves of the camphor tree (Cinnamomum camphora). Hot water steam is used as a carrier for the volatile organic compounds. Due to the non-miscibility of the organic components of the essential oil and the water, a spontaneous phase separation takes place during cooling, so that the essential oil can be separated. From this "crude oil", crystalline camphor is precipitated and separated from the liquid phase. The remaining oil is then fractionally distilled. The here discussed white organic camphor oil (organic ravintsara oil) is obtained as the first fraction.
Organic camphor oil (organic ravintsara oil) is a mobile, colorless liquid. It has a characteristic, strong and spicy scent with camphor and eucalyptus notes.
Major components are 1,8-cineole, limonene and pinenes. In lower concentrations are included camphor, geraniol, farnesol and linalool.
