Botanical Name: Melaleuca cajuputi
Part: Leaf, organic
Method: Steam distilled
Notes: Cajeput oil, Australia shares properties with tea tree and eucalyptus both in chemistry and aroma. This oil is expected to grow in importance in the upcoming years.
Excellent for clearing the head, fighting colds and viruses as well as sore muscles! Cajeput is a great addition to any chest rub for bronchial problems. Its antispasmodic properties may help with asthma. It's been said to be a must for fire ant bites (for those that live where those are a problem). It is also a safer alternative than Tea Tree when using around pets, and a safer alternative to Eucalyptus for use around children.
