Our organically crafted cajeput essential oil is steam distilled from the wildcrafted leaves and needles of the cajeput tree, also known as the weeping paperbark tree, growing in the jungles of Vietnam. We love using this essential oil to help support healthy lung and airway function, especially when looking to help reduce congestion caused by a cold or the flu.
The aromatic leaves and twigs of the Melaleuca leucadendron var. cajuputi tree create a fresh, fruity, sweet, herbaceous, camphor-like essential oil. Cajeput essential oil is distilled from the leaves and twigs of a tree in the melaleuca family – similarly to oils like tea tree, rosalina, honey myrtle that are also produced from trees in this same family – and is so helpful in supporting healthy lung and airway activity, especially relating to unwanted congestion. Cajeput essential oil is also useful when looking to ease minor pain, inflammation, and unwelcome muscle spasms. This essential oil is helpful in reducing the presence of uninvited bacterial, viral, and fungal activity. Cajeput essential oil supports a healthy digestive system. Emotionally and energetically, this essential oil clears and uplifts. Cajeput essential oil encourages mental clarity by clearing the mind and improving levels of concentration.
