What is camphor and why is it used for worship?
Camphor is a translucent crystalline material with a strong aroma. Camphor or ‘kapur’ (in Hindi) can be found in most homes. Camphor was made by distilling the bark and wood of the camphor tree (Cinnamomum camphor) that was largely found in Asia, particularly in India, Sumatra, Indonesia and Borneo. These days, camphor is made by distilling the bark and wood of the camphor tree in turpentine oil. It is used for pooja havans and aarti. It is considered a sacred substance, the flames of which keep away negative energies. According to Hindu belief, the use of camphor appeases gods and goddesses. Burning camphor gives light and aroma, both linked with spirituality. The burning of camphor signifies oneness with God and spreading the light of knowledge and goodness.

Camphor for Vastu dosha
If the house is not designed according to Vastu rules, the occupants may face problems. Placing camphor crystals in the areas that do not align with Vastu removes Vastu dosha. Camphor tablets are recommended to ward off any unseen, stuck or dormant energy that may disturb the surroundings. If the bathroom or main door is not designed as per Vastu tenets, keep camphor crystals to absorb all the bad energy.
