Description: Cajeput, related to both the Australian and NZ teatree, is a small tree with a crooked trunk; a soft, thick, spongy, whitish, ash-colored bark; and scattered branches, with the slender twigs often drooping as completely as in the weeping willow. The leaves are very aromatic when bruised.

History: It is also known as white teatree, broad-leaved teatree, paper-barked teatree, swamp teatree, and white-wood. The essential oil has been part of traditional medicine since ancient times.

Aromatic scent: The essential oil of cajeput has a fresh, camphorous aroma with a slight fruity note. The odour of the oil resembles the combined fragrance of camphor, rosemary, and cardamom.

Aromatherapy: Like many essential oils, cajeput oil can be used in aromatherapy to create a soothing and calming atmosphere. Its fresh, camphorous aroma may help reduce stress, anxiety, and promote relaxation.

Safety data: Avoid during pregnancy; skin irritant (dilute before using externally); may trigger epileptic seizures in susceptible individuals.
