Absolute Aromas LogoMethod of Extraction:
Leaves and twigs of the tree

Clearing, camphoraceous, penetrating, pale yellow-green

Suggested uses:
Cajeput is a useful addition to steam inhalations to relieve symptoms of winter chills. Add six drops to a bowl of just-boiled water, cover the head with a towel and breathe normally for up to ten minutes.

Cajeput is a common ingredient in pharmaceuticals and dentistry as an antiseptic. For problem skin, try 1 drop of Cajeput blended with 5ml (1 teaspoon) of Jojoba and apply twice daily (provided no skin irritation is experienced).

Distilled from the leaves and twigs of a tree in the same family as Tea Tree and Niaouli, Cajeput is also strongly anti-septic and has a camphoraceous aroma.

Did you know?
Often used as a room spray to ward off insects and bed bugs.

Specific Safety Advice:
Unlike its more common relatives, it has a high Cineol content, which makes it skin-sensitising for some individuals. It should not therefore be used in the bath indiluted.
