Herbalist Emily Ruff shares about plant ally Camphor, Cinnamomum camphora.
Camphor is indeed considered a class one invasive, so avoid planting in your yard. As herbalists, it's our responsibility to be mindful of these things so harvest from the wild or a neighbors yard with permission.
Used medicinally for thousands of years, the essential oil found in the leaves is a great bronchial dilator so consider for a stuffy nose or when you have chest congestion.
