Cajeput Essential Oil has a fresh, camphorous aroma resembling the combined fragrances of camphor, rosemary, and cardamom, with a slight fruity note; a middle note with a medium strength aroma.
Cajeput is a small tree with a soft, thick, spongy, ash-colored bark and scattered branches, with the slender twigs often drooping like the weeping willow (Salix babylonica). The leaves are from 3 to 5 inches long, and very aromatic when bruised. Cajeput being the Indonesian for 'white wood', it is part of the Melaleuca family and is used much in the same way as its cousin, Tea Tree.
Our Cajeput comes from carefully tended trees in Vietnam.
Can be applied topically at a 3% dilution (3 drops per 1 ounce of carrier oil); 1 drop per 1 hour in a diffuser for essential oils: do not ingest; contact with eyes should be avoided.
