We use the edible camphor called mudda karpooram for cooking, to add aroma to certain sweet dishes. Camphor essential oil, extracted from the tree also is widely used to treat a variety of diseases. But make sure to to mix it with base oils and practice caution, when using the essential oil on pregnant women. We get chemically derived camphor in both small pellet form and as a single big chunk. We use the small pellets form for using it for our prayers at home and the big sized camphor is used in temples. mudda karpooram is sold in air tight sealed plastic covers in India and when using camphor always remember that little goes a long way. Even in dishes, if you add a little bit more of the edible camphor, it will spoil the taste. When storing camphor, make sure to store them in airtight boxes and when using it on fire to make oils, be careful as it is highly flammable. Both types of camphor has amazing uses and benefits for health and is mostly used for external applications. One safety precaution while using camphor oil made from synthetic camphor is to never use it on cuts, burns or any open wounds as it is poisonous when mixed in our blood stream.
MUDDA KARPURAM USES & BENEFITS:

If you suffer from itching and rashes, do this simple home remedy. Take a piece of edible camphor and mix it with little amount of water. Wash the effected area with this homemade camphor rinse.

In India, we make a camphor oil at home to treat pregnancy cramps. Mustard oil or coconut oil is heated with synthetic camphor till it is fully melted. Once it cools down to lukewarm temperature, it is can be massaged on the legs. Even I followed this remedy, when I was pregnant with my son, as I suffered from cramps during the last trimester.
3. Mudda karpuram for ants:
Next time you have an ant problem in your home, don't use harsh chemicals around your home. Dissolve a little edible camphor in some water and sprinkle over the area and see the ants vanish immediately. This is a very safe way to get rid of ants at home.
4. Mudda karpuram for bed bugs:
Camphor can be used to to effectively treat bed bugs. If you have bed bugs, wash the sheets and sun dry the mattress. Then take a large chunk of camphor and put it in a muslin bag and keep it between the mattress, this will drive away any left over bed bugs and prevent further attacks too.
5. Mudda karpuram for acne & acne scars:
Massaging the skin with few drops of good quality camphor essential oil along with a base oil will treat acne and acne scars very effectively. Never use the camphor essential oil directly on the skin. Some good base oils are extra virgin olive oil, coconut oil, almond oil, wheat germ oil, etc.
6.Mudda karpuram for cold in children:
This home remedy for treating chest congestion is very popular in India and it is very effective. To make the remedy, take mustard or coconut oil and heat it along with little synthetic camphor. When it is warm, rub it on the child's chest and back to get good relief from chest congestion.
7. Mudda karpuram for hair loss & dandruff:
Camphor essential oil when added to our regular hair oil stimulates blood flow to the area and promotes hair growth. However use this as a pre shampoo treatment as the smell of camphor will be very strong if used as a leave in massage oil. This treatment also treats dandruff.
