Sanxia is situated by mountains and waters, so it has many natural resources of camphor. Camphor was a very important economical industry in Sanxia in the early days, but now there is only one old store left that sells camphor oil in Sanxia.
The 51 years old camphor oil shop insists on implementing the ancient distillation method for extracting premium essence oils from various plants that are natural and healthy and can refresh one’s mind as well as prevent from mosquito and insect bites. The shop also purchased the old timber left from the renovation of Old Street to shape them slowly by hand into wooden sticks filled with warmth. The considerate design allows for more convenience during use, which not only treasures natural resources, but also extends the life of old timber.
