About Camphor Chests

You want a way to store your prized possessions but you also want something beautiful that would be a great accent piece in the room. A camphor chest is all you need to add a touch of class to the space and the wood has many benefits. First, the wood is lovely and can be stained in multiple shades. Most camphor chests you will find have intricate carvings and fancy, brass latches. The vintage chests, in particular, have a lot of character. These wood chests were originally used to carry people?s possessions from China to Europe because the wood is naturally moth- and insect-repellant. Additionally, it has a pleasant smell that keeps your items fresh and even helps to clear sinuses. A camphor chest is not hard to care for either. Just dust them once a week and wax when needed. You can find a large selection of designs on eBay with engravings featuring palm trees, landscapes, sail boats, and more.
