An Energizing Scent & Natural Antiseptic
This essential oil is steam distilled from the leaves of the cajeput tree, which are collected from the wild all year round. A relative of Australian Tea Tree, Cajeput has many similar properties. With a penetrating camphorous-medicinal odor similar to eucalyptus, but slightly milder with a fruity touch.
It has traditionally been used to treat colds, flu and joint pain, and to help prevent the spread of infection. It calms the digestive system, soothes colic, dysentery, vomiting and spasms. It may also aid in skin problems, such as acne and psoriasis. It can also be used as an insect repellent.
Cajeput oil is commonly used in the form of massage & inhalation, as it's regarded as warming and relieving. It's also used as a fragrance and freshening agent in soaps, cosmetics and perfumes.
This essential oil blends well with angelica, bergamot, chamomile, clary sage, cloves, cypress, eucalyptus, geranium, juniperberry, lavender, lemon, marjoram, pine, rosemary, thyme, ylang ylang and spice oils.
