We are here to tell you the benefits of Camphor As Mosquito Repellent - How To Get Rid Of Mosquitoes.

Camphor meaning in Hindi – Kapur. Camphor in Tamil – Karpuram. It is a waxy, white or transparent substance extracted by distilling the bark and wood of the Camphor Laurel tree found in Asia widely used in Aromatherapy.

  • Treatment of minor burns.
  • Camphor is also used in some anti-itch ointments, creams and cooling gels because it is can be absorbed through skin and is effective at treating pain locally.
  • It is used topically to increase blood flow – an anti-irritant helping in reduction of pain and swelling by caused by constant irritation.

Use Of Camphor: Mosquito Repellent

Mosquitoes hunt for blood using many senses, one of these is their heightened sense of smell. With this, they can smell the carbon dioxide and chemicals that our bodies produce regularly. Camphor smell counters this exactly like how citronella and eucalyptus affects bugs. The smell of camphor overwhelms mosquitoes with their own odor and confuses them, and thus repels them from the room.

Placing camphor tablets on the corners of the room can alleviate mosquito attacks because the waxy substance evaporates on its own, filling the room with its aroma thereby making camphor as a mosquito repellent.
