Camphor (Cinamomum camphora)

Gender: Feminine
Planet: Moon
Element: Water

Powers : Chastity, health and divination.


Magical Uses: Sniff to lessen sexual desire. Also place beside the bed for this purpose. A bag of camphor (or the bark of a camphor tree) hung around the neck, prevents the contraction of colds and flu. Camphor is sometimes used in divinatory incenses; unfortunately, true camphor is all but unavailable in the United States, so synthetics usually have to suffice.
