Natural Camphor Gum isolated terpene
Camphor (/ˈkæmfər/) is a waxy, flammable, white or transparent solid with a strong aroma. It is a terpenoid with the chemical formula C10H16O. It is found in the wood of the camphor laurel (Cinnamomum camphora), a large evergreen tree found in Asia (particularly in Sumatra, Indonesia and Borneo) and also of the unrelated kapur tree, a tall timber tree from the same region.
It also occurs in some other related trees in the laurel family, notably Ocotea usambarensis. The oil in rosemary leaves (Rosmarinus officinalis), in the mint family, contains 10 to 20% camphor, while camphorweed (Heterotheca) only contains some 5%.
Camphor can also be synthetically produced from oil of turpentine. It is used for its scent, as an ingredient in cooking (mainly in India), as an embalming fluid, for medicinal purposes, and in religious ceremonies.
A major source of camphor in Asia is camphor basil (the parent of African blue basil).
What are Isolated Terpenes?
Isolated terpenes are aromatic compounds that are largely responsible for the smell and taste of many things.
With that said, the community thinks of them solely as a source of aroma and flavor in their favorite strain of flowers. However, there are a number of possible applications for terpenes that are unknown to many people who consider themselves a flower connoisseur.
