Cajeput is a refreshing essential oil that has an uplifting Eucalyptus-like aroma. Long used for chronic laryngitis and sore throats, this is a good choice for assisting in cold, flu, asthma, and rheumatism treatment. Not only is this oil effective in counteracting cold and flu symptoms, it is also valuable for dealing with painful conditions such as sports injuries, muscle stiffness, arthritis, rheumatism, neuralgia, gout, colic, and cramping caused by menstruation and intestinal issues. Cajeput is an ideal oil to include in itch blends for insect bite, eczema, psoriasis treatment, and allergic skin reactions. In Chinese Medicine according to Dennis Wilmont, Cajeput is useful for transforming damp in the lung and skin as well as for ridding damp in general infectious disorders. It has been used in the Asian countries as a spray for bug and insect control. Useful for spot treatments with acne.
