Cajeput is a small tree with a tolerably erect but 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 (Salix Babylonica). The leaves are alternate, most frequently vertical, short-stalked, narrow- lanceolate, while young, sericeous, sometimes slightly falcate, entire, from 3 to 5 inches long; and very aromatic when bruised.
Cajeput essential oil is made by extracting oils from fresh leaves and twigs through steam distillation method. The oil is rich in anti-inflammatory, antiseptic, analgesic, anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties which make it a natural substitute to treat severe body disorders.

Avoid use with babies or children under five years old on their faces or in a steam. 1,8 cineole presents a low risk of both skin irritation & sensitization.

I purchased this oil to use in a recipe to help with the appearance of some veins on my ankles. I have not yet made the cream. When I first received this oil, oh my! I absolutely love the smell!
