Melaleuca leucadendron (Lamiacee)

Origin: Vietnam

Also known as the paperbark tree, the cajeput is a large evergreen tree that grows spontaneously in southeast Asia and Australia.
It can reach a height of thirty metres and has a flexible trunk, thick foliage and white flowers.


The essential oil is obtained by steam distillation of the fresh leaves and twigs. It is transparent, with a distinctive green colour and a strongly medicinal, balmy-camphorous scent. It combines well with the essential oils of Citron, Lavender, Lemon, Marjoram and red Thyme.

(according to
popular herbalist tradition)

Essential oil of cajeput is totally non-toxic if used in moderation, and non-irritating. In the East, it's prized as a remedy for respiratory complaints.
It has anti-septic, anti-viral, cleansing, expectorant, anti-parasite and anaesthetic properties. It's also indicated for the treatment of insect bites.

In the personal hygiene industry it's used as an ingredient of mouthwash and refreshing lotions, and as a scent agent in soap.
