From the magnificent camphor trees, considered holy by the Chinese, we are given the gift of the natural translucent crystals of Borneol Camphor (Dryobalanops aromatica) from Japan. Natural borneol camphor has a sharp but smooth, cleansing and uplifting fragrance. Very little is needed to give any incense mixture a fresh aroma. Camphor is said to strengthen awareness and is helpful in maintaining concentration. For this reason, it's often added to morning meditation incense mixtures. Fragrant borneol excretes from the camphor trees naturally through cracks in the trunk and bark. It's also harvested from the fissures that run just under the bark of the tree. Camphor is a key ingredient for many Japanese incense masters.
