    Last one month I am using camphor and coconut oil mix for black skin patch on my forehead. But unable to get desired results.
    Suggest alternative.

  7. Hi, Shalini thank you for your comment. These scars do fade but they take time. Do not panic be religious with your skin care routine and you will be your old self in no time. Apply Multani Mitti or Besan pack instead of facewash. Before sleeping apply a generous amount of pure almond oil and let your skin heal and repair itself during your bedtime. Stay away from chemical loaded products as they irritate the affected area. Do let me know if these tips helped. Take care.

  8. I had burnt on my face with fire and got healed. I am getting drak brown scars how can I avoid these scars as soon as possible.

  9. Please rush to the doctor immediately. Never take any chances with a child. The coconut oil if pure is edible and camphor is used in many medicines so that will not also create any problems hopefully but in case of a child please trust only medical professionals.

  10. Please convey me as soon as possible that if the composition of camphor and coconut oil is drunk by a child app.a sip is there any serious problem

  11. Hi, Thank you for your comment. I would not advise leaving the mixture overnight if you are trying this for the first time. Try applying for 10 to 15 mins first and rinse off with room temperature to cold water. if you do not feel any irritation you can apply for longer durations. If you do find the mixture mildly irritable you can always make it milder by increasing the quantity of coconut oil. Good luck. I hope this tip works for you.

  12. Hi..when applying this mix that is coconut oil and camphor on my skin(to remove dark spots) or on my scalp(for hair loss),should i wash it after a certain period??what if leave it overnight??will it a problem..kindly reply asap..

  13. Thank you for your comment Reena, I am not sure if this mix will work but do try Apple Cider Vinegar mixed with equal quantity water to wash affected area. You can always dilute the mix with adding more water in case you find it too strong. I wish you good luck and hope you find the right cure soon.

  14. I have only tried mixing it with Coconut oil. Sorry, I do not know much about mineral oil so I would not be able to suggest about it.

  15. Thank you for the comment Colin 🙂 I would suggest to add Camphor oil gradually. Start with few drops and then increases the quantity as required.

  16. I’ve tried coconut oil for eczema and it works well to keep the affected area moisturized. Will combine it with camphor oil when the skin flares up next time. Thanks for sharing!

  17. Hi, Mahesh Thank you for your comment. This treatment can be used as long as you require to completely treat the problem. Pure Ayurvedic Camphor and Coconut oil that is available at an Authentic Ayurvedic store is beneficial for skin’s health.

  18. Hi Hetal,

    Thank you for your comment. An edible one that you can buy from an Ayurvedic shop will be more beneficial. Camphor is used for various Ayurvedic Medicines the synthetic one is used manufactured in bulk for commercial reasons mostly around festivals.

  19. Hi,

    Thanks for the great post.
    I use it in the raw form mostly ( for cooking, makeup remover, as a night cream). But will surely try this.
    I lost weight since I started using Coconut oil in cooking.

  20. It Can be used to make homemade soap, deodorant, shaving cream, conditioners, sunscreens, scrubs.Of course, coconut oil may not be suitable for everyone, but it is often well tolerated by those with sensitive skin.

  21. Quite well written.Coconut oil works wonders as a moisturizer, so when I came home from the beach the other day with a nasty sunburn on the backs of my legs (we’ve all been there, you know, that upper part near your butt that you always miss when you put on sunscreen), I decided to try a little coconut love.
