The sharp, medicinal scent of Cajeput, similar to Eucalyptus, tells of its antiseptic and stimulating properties. It is also known as White Tea Tree and is an ingredient in the popular ‘Tiger Balm’.

Nature/Essence – Clarifying & Invigorating

Cajeput has antiseptic properties useful for acne, cold sores and other skin conditions where pain and infection are present.

A primary use for Cajeput is as a respiratory antiseptic and expectorant to ease colds, coughs and congestion. Cajeput’s other main use is as a topical analgesic and antispasmodic, long used for its quick acting relief of muscle or joint aches and stiffness, and helpful for period pain, headaches and neuralgia.

Cajeput helps clarify the mind, clearing a sluggish or foggy mental state.

Cajeput is reported to have insect repellent properties.

In order to get enough I bought samples

Those flaming difficult stopper tops again in all 4 samples.

Sweet, tangey vaugely citrusy aroma. Used in pain relief oils & balms. Wish I'd had some back in my painful period days... It's so much cheaper than rose, both then & now.

It smells strong. I put it in when I made soap at home. It smells long till last.
