If you want the formula....
opodeldoc was a synonym for soap liniment BP and it was popular among the older generation for rubbing on chapped hands when mixed with an equal part of glycerin (or glycerol, as we must now call it).
opodeldoc’s pharmacopoeial formula calls for powdered soap 60g, camphor 45g, oil of rosemary 10ml, alcohol 700ml and enough water to make it up to one litre.
You've next to no chance or buying camphor or camphorated spirit but some private chemists will still stock soap liniment and bottles of glycerin/glycerol
