The essential cajeput oil is obtained by steam distillation of the leaves and twigs of the cajeput tree (Melaleuca leucadendra).
Applied externally, the oil helps for example with skin complaints such as acne and dermatitis. Psoriasis and pain of the skin are further areas of application. In general, the cajeput oil relieves many kinds of pain, including toothache and earaches.
Inhalations with the oil of the cajeput tree repel colds and are also recommended for chronic respiratory diseases. Mucus and antispasmodic properties help to defeat coughs and support patients with inflammations of the frontal and paranasal sinuses. The oil contains approximately 50 to 70 percent of 1.8-cineol, which is known for its positive effects in certain respiratory diseases.
