The Cajuput tree originates from the Malayan coastal plains and is also sometimes referred to as the White Tea Tree. Cajuput has historically been used for its ability to produce a sensation of warmth and comfort - in Australia the crushed leaves and twigs were applied directly to relieve aches and pains. In modern aromatherapy Cajuput essential oil is still used to ease aches and pains, and is an ideal aromatherapy oil for an after-sports massage blend. 

As a sister plant to Tea Tree, Cajuput essential oil has a wide range of uses but is perhaps most beneficial for its antiseptic properties, and for combating infections such as colds and bronchitis. It is also used for digestive and skin problems and for stimulating the mind. Like Ravensara, Cajeput oil is considered to have a more pleasant smell than Tea Tree and it is therefore a popular alternative when a more fragrant aroma is required.
