Cajeput Essential Oil Variations
Hailing from Indonesia with that typically strong medicinal odour. Cajeput is often an unsung hero and has mainly been used as an ingredient for cosmetics and perfumes.
Though revered as an antiseptic and a remedy for the stomach, rheumatism, cholera and as an insecticide. The scent is like eucalyptus, though milder and fruitier. It retains its strong, penetrating and wonderfully peppery odour.
Clear in colour, this top note oil is said to clear congestion and has analgesic properties. Provides backbone in many blends. We prefer the organic version as it is a little more intense and offers greater depth. Generally organic growers produce a lower volume of product and put their heart and soul into their oils, which is usually reflected in the overall quality. That said the standard amber glass bottle product is a super oil.
