Botanical name: Melaleuca cajeputi
Country of origin: Indonesia
Cajeput Essential Oil – sometimes spelled Cajuput – is steam distilled from the leaves and twigs of the Melaleuca cajeputi botanical. It is named after the Indonesian word "kayu putih," which means "white wood" with regard to its ash-coloured bark. Cajeput Essential Oil has a thin consistency and is either colourless or pale yellow in appearance. Its penetratingly fresh and clean scent carries a fruity nuance and a camphorous trace that is characterized as somewhat medicinal. This warming oil is reputed to help manage feelings of discomfort from sore or aching joints and muscles, as well as menstrual cramps. The invigorating and sweet quality of its aroma is believed to uplift the mood, boost feelings of energy, and help maintain healthy respiration. Applied topically, it is believed to be soothing, which makes it ideal for managing symptoms of colds, flu, sinus infections and seasonal allergies. It is also an excellent ingredient in natural bug repellant sprays.
