The term camphor can apply to Camphor Essential Oil, but it can also apply to the tree that the wood is distilled from. It can also apply to the specific constituent known as camphor. When discussing or reading about camphor, it's important to understand whether it's the whole essential oil that is being discussed or if it's the constituent.

The chemical constituent known as camphor is a ketone. Interestingly, White Camphor Essential Oil contains only a trace to a small percentage of the constituent camphor.

White Camphor Essential Oil is a rectified oil. To produce the oil, crude camphor is collected from the trees and is steam distilled into fractions, namely white camphor, brown camphor, yellow camphor and blue camphor. 

It is crucial that you purchase exactly White Camphor Essential Oil. Brown Camphor Oil and Yellow Camphor Oil contain significant quantities of the toxic constituent safrole and are not safe for use.
