The name “Cajeput” is derived from its Indonesian name, “Kayu Putih” or "White Wood". The trees have a grey-white papery bark and gorgeous white, pink and purple flowers.
Cajeput shares a wide range of properties with Eucalyptus and Tea Tree (they are both in the same genus, Melaleuca) in natural composition and aroma. Native to Australia and Asia, Cajeput essential oil is extracted from the leaves of 50-100 foot evergreen trees using steam distillation.
Cajeput Essential Oil is a must-have oil to keep on hand for cold and flu season, especially for use in the diffuser as well as also possessing anti fungal properties.
Cajeput (Melaleuca leucadendron) is a relative to Tea Tree (Melaleuca alternifolia). Aromatically, Cajeput Essential Oil is quite campherous but possesses a fresh, uplifting, fruity quality.
