Making of Camphor Essential Oil at Aadhunik Ayurveda

At Aadhunik Ayurveda fresh camphor leaves are steam distilled through the ancient techniques of steam distillation to make camphor essential oil. The process gives complete natural camphor oil with no addition of any synthetics.

And therefore a drop of essential oil is purely the volatile ark of camphor in the form of oil; hence it is very powerful and concentrated containing the oil soluble nutrients of camphor in it. Like wise the hydrosol of camphor contains the water soluble nutrients of camphor in it.

So At Aadhunik Ayurveda we work with the practice to not waste at all because the plant parts left after the distillation are used as natural pesticide in farming.

Sustainability and ethical sourcing of camphor leaves and stem

At Aadhunik Ayurveda we make use of camphor leaves only and collect leaves from trees planted in the backyard of many houses in the himalayas. Every year as a routine the households shed some part of the tree as a tree lopping exercise and we collect the same. This collected material is used in the distillery and also the leaves are dried to make camphor powder which again is used in many products. Aadhunik Ayurveda always works with focus on preserving the environment and therefore never uses camphor trunk or roots to steam distil the hydrosol and essential oils.


Physico-chemical and Phytochemical Study & Microbial Analysis of Camphor Hydrosol

Abstract: Camphor tree (Cinnamomum camphora) is an ornamental plant that has been cultivated for a long time to obtain wood or camphor. Furthermore, its hydrosol/aromatic water can be used as an alternative medicine and is an important source of perfume.

Camphor obtained from camphor trees has long been used as a treatment for various symptoms such as inflammation, infections, congestion, muscle pain, and irritation in various regions.


Cinnamomum camphora is a large evergreen tree. The leaves of camphor leaves a glossy, waxy, appearance & smell of camphor when crushed.

Modern studies have found that the main chemical constituents from camphor hydrosol were flavonoids, tannins, glycosides etc.


The biological activity of camphor has mainly demonstrated anti-bacterial, anti-oxidation, anti-inflammatory and analgesic.

The aim of present study is to evaluate the herbal waters/ hydrosol of Camphor leaves obtained as innovative commercial products of a steam distillation process.

The following tables provide records on the most commonly tested physico-chemical, phytochemicals, and Microbiological evaluation in Camphor Leaves Hydrosol.

1.4 Result of Phytochemical Analysis of Camphor Leaves Hydrosol

The following result were obtained after performing the phytochemical test:

This method includes the selective and successive extraction of the plant phytochemical. The analysis of the presence of the main group of natural constituents present in the plant extract was done using different specific reagents. Chemical tests were done to identify bioactive compounds of pharmacological importance through standard methods. Phytochemicals such as below were qualitatively determined

S.No. Phytochemical Tests Sweet lime Hydrosol Specification Results
1. Flavonoid Highly presence of red colour (+ve)
2 Tannin Highly presence of greenish colour (+ve)
3 Cardiac glycoside Slightly presence of brown ring (+ve)
4 Steroid Highly presence of yellow-greenish fluroscence colour (+ve)
5 Anthraquinone No presence of pinkish colour, which immediately change in blue/violet colour (-ve)

1.5 Result of Microbial Analysis of Camphor Leaves Hydrosol

Microbial Specification Results
Aerobic Mesophilic Bacterial Count <100 CFU/g Conforms
Yeast and Mould <10 CFU/g Conforms


  1. Appearance- The Camphor leaves hydrosol/aromatic water is in a liquid form similar to water. That is because it is soluble in water.
  2. Colour- The camphor leaves hydrosol is a clean, colourless slightly cloudy liquid.
  3. Odour- The odour of Camphor hydrosol is derived from the leaves of a Camphor plant. The odour of Camphor aromatic water has a fresh, penetrating, powerful camphoraceous and mild cinedic aroma. However the aroma/odour changes from season to season with variety in its volatile compounds due to various factors like - temperature, rainfall, humidity and soil health etc.
  4. Solubility- the camphor leaves hydrosol is soluble in water and alcohol but insoluble in fat/fixed oils.
  5. pH- A pH of 7 is neutral, above 7 the pH is alkaline and below 7 the pH is acidic.
  6. Acidity/Acidic- Camphor leaves aromatic water is acidic in nature as it has a low pH, as opposed to a base, which has a higher pH.
  7. Specific Gravity- is used to define the weight of a liquid as compared to density at a specific temperature. If the specific gravity for a camphor leaves hydrosol is less than 1, that means the material will flow in the reference substances, and if the water sample is more than 1, that means the material will sink in the reference material.
  8. Heavy Metals- this test is done to check for irregular levels of toxic or potentially harmful metals. The Heavy Metal Limit test is based on the reaction of metallic impurities with hydrogen sulphide or sodium sulphide in an acidic medium to provide metal sulphide which provides brown coloration.
  9. Microbial Test- is important and required by many industries worldwide, where human health is at risk of being adversely affected by disease-causing bacterial & virus, and microbial toxins.

Microbiological evaluation of a camphor leaves hydrosol sample is the use of biological, biochemical, molecular or chemical methods for the identification of microorganisms in a sample.

Observations of Phytochemical Tests for Camphor Leaves Hydrosol

1. Flavonoid

Formation of red colour, which shows the presence of flavonoid in a sample.

2. Tannin

Formation of green colour, which shows the presence of tannin in a sample.

3. Cardiac glycoside

Slightly formation of brown ring, which shows there is no presence of cardiac glycoside in a sample.

4. Steroid

Formation of yellowish-greenish fluorescence, which shows the presence of steroids in a sample.

5. Anthraquinone

No formation of pinkish colour was observed, which immediately changed in blue/violet colour, which shows there is no presence of anthraquinone in a sample.



The result of this study shows that the Camphor leaves hydrosol indicates the presence of flavonoids, steroids, tannins, cardiac glycoside as major phytochemical groups.
