Cajeput Essential Oil is a really complex, camphorous scent with sweet fruity undertones. It's invigoratingly therapeutic. Wakes up the senses.

This oil works great in my pain relief salve. I blend it with menthol, lavender and clove bud.

This is the first time I've ordered cajeput from anywhere, but I really like it. Not as 'in your face' as eucalyptus, but with similar congestion-clearing properties (evident at first whiff ;) lol). While I had bought it for use in salves for muscle and joint pain relief, I definitely won't ignore it during the winter cold/flu seasons!

I love cajeput, if only I could pronounce it! it smells a bit like eucalyptus but has the wonderful qualities of tea tree. I blend it with virginia cedarwood for a great invogorating, yet earthy scent

I find cajput not only eases sore muscles but it also has a soothing effect on my mildly arthritic knuckles.

Wonderfully priced, all-purpose oil! Since essential oils are adaptogens, you can find "YOUR" oil--one that seems to work for you for practically everything, that works to balance your unique vibrational energy. I have found this to be one such oil for certain individuals.

Very bright, sharp smell, similar to eucalyptus, but with a richer and sweeter note.

Everyone else compares cajeput to tea tree oil, but I think it smells more like a milder eucalyptus globulus. I really enjoy it in the nebulizer when I'm stuffed up, and diluted in a carrier with pine and frankincense for a chest cough.

Cajeput is great in preparations for acne but is also quite affective in back muscle pain relief when blended with chamomile, roman and lavander.

Good value. Excellent substitute for tea tree when a more herbaceous scent is wanted.

So much like tea tree in it's applictions but a nicer, less medicinal smell. I'd rather use it in a blend for massage or burning, and it's nicer on the skin/face.

I have been shopping around for a better priced essential oil supplier, as my previous supplier was very expensive. I am thrilled to have found New Directions Aromatics !! I am now hooked and I was able to offer my customers even lower prices due to the prices here! Their packaging is also amazing ! I hope that they can offer cajeput in 500 ml quantities or more because this is one oil I sell a lot of. I wanted to make a correction to the post that said cajeput is used as an antibacterial mixer in our henna paste (as this is not it's true purpose). Cajeput is used as what we call a "terp", which darkens the henna stain when mixed into the henna paste. The color results will be even darker then without "terps" (essential oils such as cajeput etc., which darken the henna paste). Using essential oils known as "terps" are the best way to go when making henna paste for a darker stain result. Other essential oils may be added for scent.

Wonderful immune-boosting oil. CAJEPUT or Melaleuca cajeputi is also known as the White Tea Tree and Swamp Tea Tree it is often confused with True Tea Tree Oil (Melaleuca alternifolia), and Niaouli (Melaleuca viridiflora). I use it for aches and pains, acne, arthritis, asthma, bronchitis, catarrh, coughs, cystitis, fire ant bites, insect stings, oily skin, rheumatism, sinus congestion, spots, urinary & viral infection. (Also known as Cajuput, Melaleuca leucadendron, Melaleuca minor, Paperbark Tree, Punk Tree, White Wood.) Also widely used as an antiseptic mixer in Henna Tattooing. Henna = the Egyptian Privet = Lawsonia inermis. This is a great quality oil, highly recommended.
