Description / Color / Consistency: A thin, colorless to pale yellow clear liquid.
Aromatic Summary / Note / Strength of Aroma: Cajeput Essential Oil has a fresh, camphorous aroma resembling the combined fragrances of camphor, rosemary, and cardamom, with a slight fruity note; a middle note with a medium strength aroma.
Product Abstract: Cajeput is a small tree with a soft, thick, spongy, ash-colored bark and scattered branches, with the slender twigs often drooping like the weeping willow (Salix babylonica). The leaves are from 3 to 5 inches long, and very aromatic when bruised. Cajeput being the Indonesian for 'white wood', it is part of the Melaleuca family and is used much in the same way as its cousin, Tea Tree.
Cautions: Dilute before use; for external use only. May cause skin irritation in some individuals; a skin test is recommended prior to use. Contact with eyes should be avoided.
Storage: It is recommended that oils packaged in metal containers (for safe shipping) be transferred into dark glass containers to maintain freshness and attain maximum shelf life.

Rating: Horrifying prices! This company increases their prices every few months by 10-20-50 even 60$! Their cajeput is not good quality- it retains its terpenes for less than 2 months. Since i first began buying it a year ago, their price has increased 40$!!!!!!! What kind of wholesale is this?? A joke is what! Moving on to better suppliers now!
Rating: Fresh, herbal , camphor and fruity! A very fresh scent for any blend and as I only use for soaps I mix it with other EO's. I added to a lemon blend for a lime soap and my soap darkened with time but I have not yet differentiated which one caused it! Still love the smell of it , though.

Rating: Very good quality product. If somebody doesn't like using tea tree oil than this is a great substitute.
By:Eva, London, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 27-Mar-2009
Rating: I hate the smell of tea tree, so was excited to try cajeput, to hopefully get some fo the same benefits, but with a different scent. I'm thrilled with it. I love the camphorous smell, and I use this in several aromatherapy blends. I'll definitely be ordering more of this!

Rating: Wow, this oil has the most amazing aroma, and I can't get enough of it. I far prefer it to the Tea Tree Australian, Eucalyptus Globulus, or Rosemary Spanish, though it has hints of all of those to my nose anyways. It's a softer less astringent smell and smells great in the diffuser. It's worked well to help my husband's asthma. I'm going to try mixing it with florals, as one reviewer commented on - great idea, as I am not a fan either of heavy floral scents.
Mixed this with some rosemary, eucalyptus, and lavender for a pain rub, and it did quite well. I'm looking forward to experimenting with it a lot more, and at this price, I will be buying larger quantities.

Rating: This one is so similar to eucaliptus globalus that it is almost hard to distinguish them. It's good for the winter season.
By:Rava, Toronto, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 29-Apr-2011
Rating: Smells like healing! Use this for my asthma & sinus issues with great results.
By:Megan, Calgary, Alberta Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 08-Aug-2012
Rating: seems to work rather well for coughs and asthma! very sinus opening! no complaints here, great price, too
By:Leeann, Grand Valley, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 25-May-2008
Rating: This EO is amazing mixed in equal amounts with NDA's Ylang Ylang #1 in a carrier oil or diffusing it. Wow!!!!! Very surprising to me! It tones down the strong floral component. (I am not a huge floral fan). Definitely worth trying..... Of course, I plan on using it for muscular pain too but I now plan to add Ylang Ylang to counteract the camphor/medicine aroma in the Cajeput. (My husband does not like the medicinal smell in muscle rubs). I may add more to the blend but it is definitely a starting point.

Rating: I find cajput not only eases sore muscles but it also has a soothing effect on my mildly arthritic knuckles.
By:Maureen, Vancouver, British Columbia

Rating: Another great product, works well for muscle aches
By:Nathan, Brantford, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 08-Apr-2011
Rating: Awesome quality, great price. Excellent for "terping" my henna paste. Love NDA!
Rating: Very bright, sharp smell, similar to eucalyptus, but with a richer and sweeter note.
By:Jenn, Vancouver, British Columbia Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 15-Mar-2010
Rating: 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.
By:Crystal, Port Moody, British Columbia Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Apr-2008
Rating: Cajeput is great in preparations for acne but is also quite affective in back muscle pain relief when blended with chamomile, roman and lavander.
By:Vanice, Cambridge, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 19-Dec-2006
Rating: Good value. Excellent substitute for tea tree when a more herbaceous scent is wanted.
By:Tracey, Toronto, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Jan-2007
Rating: 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.

Rating: 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.

Rating: 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.
