- Camphor is a waxy, white or transparent solid with a strong, aromatic odor. It is found in wood of the camphor laurel , a large evergreen tree found in Asia. Dried rosemary leaves contain up to 20% camphor. It can also be synthetically produced from oil of turpentine. camphor is poisonous when ingested and can cause seizures, confusion, irritability, and neuromuscular hyperactivity. In extreme cases, even topical application of camphor may lead to hepatotoxicity. Lethal doses in adults are in the range 50–500 mg/kg (orally). Generally, two grams cause serious toxicity and four grams are potentially lethal. In the circumstances, perhaps Conifer was intended??
