Camphor has been used for many centuries as a culinary spice, incense component, and medicine. But, do you know where it came from or how it is connected with our ancient Ayurveda? Camphor, also known as "Kapur," is a white crystal-like compound with a strong, pungent aroma and taste. Kapur is primarily derived from the wood of the camphor plant, i.e., Cinnamomum camphora. It is often known for its therapeutic benefits as well as used in spiritual practices!
