Kenyan Camphor Bush is also called Leleshwa (pronounced la-lesh-wa) or African Wild Sage. It is an exciting aromatherapy and skincare oil produced from steam distilled wildcrafted leaves and flowers.
Many prefer Leleshwa for its clean camphoraceous aroma and purifying benefits. This essential oil contains just 3% camphene making it ideal for use in the diffuser to purify the air of stale and musty odors. GCMS analysis of Camphor Bush oil suggests a fantastic antimicrobial oil with 18% alpha Pinene and 1,8-Cineole, 20% endo-Fenchol, and 4-5% ranges for alpha Terpineol and Terpinen 4-ol.
General uses: acne, antiseptic, antibacterial, antimicrobial, dandruff, headache, insect repellent, purifying, diffusers, potpourri, massage oil, perfume, bath oil, bath salt, bath and shower gels, spa treatment oils and creams, soap, and candle scent. Afrika Botanicals highly recommends this oil.
