5 Amazing Benefits OF Using Camphor!

Did you know that camphor is very effective in keeping your home devoid of bad odor? Camphor or kapoor, as it is commonly called, can be found in every Hindu household. It is primarily used for purposes like pooja and aarti and for warming the house. It is considered to be a holy substance, the flames of which drive away negative energies and evil forces. However, camphor is beneficial in several other ways as well. It can be used as a natural home freshener which serves certain purposes.

Benefits of Camphor

  1. Camphor helps in killing germs. It is also an excellent way to purify the air in the surroundings of your home. Burning camphor or kapoor regularly is an effective way to eliminate germs from your household.
  2. It keeps your home odour free
  3. Artificial room fresheners, which are commonly used, contain a harmful chemical known as phthalates. This chemical may lead to the development of several health complications in children and pregnant woman. Instead of using such artificial room fresheners, you should use camphor as an alternative. It is very effective in eliminating odor. You need to burn the camphor in a lamp, ideally in the center of a room. Place it in a location from where the fragrance can reach all the parts of the room.
  4. It acts as an effective insecticide. Camphor contains properties, which act as an efficient natural insecticide. You can apply camphor to get rid of insects such as ants, bed bugs and mosquitoes. Here are the ways you can follow:
    • In case of ants, you need to dissolve a small amount of camphor in water. Sprinkle it over the area where you see ants, and they will go away instantly.
    • For eliminating bed bugs, you should wash your bed covers and bed sheets and mattresses in the sun. Put a chunk of camphor, put it in a piece of muslin cloth and keep it between the mattresses. This will drive all bed bugs away.
  5. Camphor is very useful in eliminating or getting rid of mosquitoes in your house. Camphor is made from the extract of a certain tree. Compared with other natural mosquito repellents, camphor has the most powerful mosquito repellent activity and capability. You need to light the camphor in your room and shut all doors and windows. Leave the room in this condition for around fifteen minutes and you will get a completely mosquito-free environment.

Other than being a natural freshener, camphor is also beneficial for the treatment of several skin problems such as rashes and irritation. It helps in treating pregnancy cramps and helps in the treatment of acne scars as well. Instead of using chemical camphor, it is always recommended to use Bhinseni Camphor (Kapoor).

Dear lybrate-user, all human beings as rule of thumb are warm blooded animals, ie we have thermostat mechanism which mainatains favourable yet constant tempreture for our body system, Some animals which belongs to genus reptiles/amphibian etc are called cold blooded, like snakes crocodile where they require external sources, unlike c old blooded creatures our body and your body knows to handle tempreture llike one you are facing now a days! second worry is Feverish feeling which you are undergoing, yes some people are sensitive to tempreture changes which occurs at change of season and they may be more prone for viral infections /flu like sickness/seasonal cold etc ,if you continue to feel feverish, check your oral (mouth) tempreture by thermometer and read whether it crossed red mark (98. 6F), if so get check with blood reports and seek medical advise or else relax ,wear heavy clothing if required, avoid ice or cold driks when your body is heated etc stay hydrated, eat seasonal fruits ,cucumber and tomatoes, this will strengthene your immune responses. Right now as per your description your are absolutely normal, feel blessed and take care, for more you may write to me.

Good afternoon doctor. I am suffering from anal fissure from last 6 months and taking homeopathic treatment. But as I am little overweight (83 kg -175 cm), I want to make a body with some good muscles. So my issue is, that can I take protein resources/power for muscles if it does not affect my fissure. Or should I drop this idea?

I have pimples on my face day by day growing up. How to overcome this problem and what to do to avoid this.
To prevent pimples, eating fresh fruits, green vegetables, drinking plenty of water should be an essential part of your routine and intake of oily fried foods, an excess of sugar-salt should be avoided. To begin with- Take fruit diet once in a week, which consist of fresh juice, fruits, coconut water and vegetable (green leafy). Warm water enema should be taken daily to clean the bowels and constipation. Take a balanced diet with an alkaline base, which consists of sprouted cereals, whole grain cereals and vegetables. Vitamin a, e and b can be used to treat acne. Green tea and walnuts help to keep your skin pimple free. Drinking 8-10 glasses of water every day is good for emission of toxin from the body. Always try to include low-fat dairy products in your meal. These are a good source of vitamin a. Homoepathic remedies helps to get rid of pimples, scars without side effects permanently If you have any specific question about your condition, consult for treatment. You can buy acne and pimples package offered by me which includes medicine and consultation.
