Winter remedies- Camphorated Liniment Oil

Updated: Jul 6, 2023

Winter in South Africa has been quite tough thus far with floods, tornadoes & earthquakes ! Bring on the flu & loadshedding it surely dampens the spirit!

We all need something to soothe us in the winter months, and Camphorated Liniment is just the answer for all your winter ailments.

Camphor oil is popular in aromatherapy, as it helps relieve respiratory congestion. It also has antitussive properties that can help ease coughs in children and adults. For these reasons, it is an ingredient in Camphorated Liniment. Furthermore use it as a massage oil or even as a bath oil.

Camphorated Liniment can be applied to the chest or feet — in which case it is a good idea to put on socks afterward. Or it could be dissolved in a bowl of hot water and the steam can be inhaled.

Liniment is an embrocation for rubbing on the body to relieve pain, especially one made with oil.

Camphorated oil's base is pure virgin olive oil which is great as a moisteriser & can be used in a bath as well.
