Legend: Australian Aborigines have traditionally used Cajeput through the ages by crushing the leaves and rubbing it on aches and pains, also using the smell to drive away head aches and evil spirits.
It is variously known as White tea-tree, Broad-leaved tea-tree, Paper-barked tea-tree, Swamp tea-tree, and White-wood.
Heal your Body: Helps soothe colic and intestine inflammation. Use in a carrier oil to alleviate itchy bites and relief of eczema and psoriasis. When used in a massage oil it is really helpful, due to its analgesic and antispasmodic properties, for arthritis, rheumatism, neuralgia, gout, sciatica, lumbago, and general muscle stiffness and aches and pains.
Cajeput’s best strength is helping the respiratory system, steam inhalation is great for cleansing the congested nasal passages and sore throats. It is also recommended for asthma, sinusitis, bronchitis, laryngitis, sore throats, coughs, colds and flues. A drop in a bath can promote sweating, helping to release flu toxins and reduce fevers. Flies & lice make a hasty retreat when pets are rubbed down with a blend using this oil.

Directions: Suspended in a base of pure Jojoba oil, this Cajeput pure essential oil blend can be applied neat to the skin or used in massage. For other ways to use essential oils please visit our Methods of use section. Please note: that Essential Oils blended with Jojoba do not burn as well in candle vaporisers (unless they are very well heated). The water in the candle vaporiser needs to be quite hot and the newer open style burners just don’t heat the water/oil up enough, so if you are purchasing a new vaporiser make sure you get an enclosed one.
We recommend electric diffuser that uses ultrasonic waves to diffuse the water with essential oils into tiny molecules, producing an elegant mist, releasing the essential oils in their 100% purest form and enhancing the effect of aromatherapy.
Warnings: Not for internal use. Avoid contact with eyes. Not to be used neat on the body. Always dilute. Adults Only. Keep out of reach of children. If symptoms persist consult your healthcare practitioner. Not recommended for sensitive skin. Avoid if you have splenic cancer. Always use undiluted in baths.
