Producing a wonderful bright, fresh, aroma, our Cajeput essential oil is derived from the steam distilled leaves of organically cultivated Australian Cajeput trees. Also known as ‘White Tea Tree’, ‘White Wood’ and ‘Paperbark tree’, the Cajeput tree can grow up to 30 meters in height and is native to Malaysia, Indonesia, Vietnam, Java, and Australia.
About The Oil
In the same genus as Tea Tree, Cajeput essential oil contains the potent antimicrobial constituent terpinen-4-ol, as well as 1,8-Cineol, the predominant constituent of Eucalyptus. Several other varieties of Melaleuca are cultivated for the production of Cajeput essential oil such as Melaleuca quinquenervia, a varietal found in more tropical climates. Relatives in the Melaleuca family include Eucalyptus, Tea Tree, Clove, and Niaouli.
Cajeput has long been used in Malaysia and Indonesia for its therapeutic values.
