Words by Mikaël


The Cajuput repairs the energy field while protecting it ; the loss of vital energy is gradually disappearing, and with it the feeling of tiredness or even exhaustion.

Pulmonary and skin anti-inflammatory, analgesic.

The Cajeput, Melaleuca cajuputi, an evergreen tree that reaches up to 30 m tall, with thick, whitish bark that exfoliates into broad bands, is native to South-East Asia and Northern Australia.

This tree from the Myrtaceae family, like the Tea tree and Niaouli, prefers river banks, swampy areas or places that flood during rainy seasons.

The name Cajeput and the specific epithet of the Latin name cajuputi are phonetic borrowings from the Indonesian, Kayu putih «white wood».

For Malaysians and the people of the Moluccas archipelago, cajeput oil was a panacea.

This reputation extended to all of Indonesia, India, Malaysia, China and Vietnam. 

Rich in 1.8 cineol, of a light green color and of fresh, woodsy scent close to that of eucalyptus, it was known for its efficiency and the gentleness of its oil. 

It was quickly adopted by European settlers, saying, “It is used as an excellent remedy for rheumatic pain and paralysis, applying it in friction.”

This assertion was the inception for the production and export of cajeput oil in the Moluccas archipelago in the 17th century.

It was one of the first products exported from South-East Asia into Europe by the Dutch.

This oil, which is used in massage and in synergies for diffusion, is a first-rank ally for winter discomforts, both to support the health of the respiratory tract as well as to relieve joints affected by cold or stress accumulated on the snowy trackways and slopes of our Nordic country.

Words by Anny Schneider

This shrub in the Myrtaceae family is recognized as antiseptic and digestive (in friction, diluted in vegetable oil on the stomach).

It also has mucolytic virtues (in friction, diluted in oil on the chest in the event of congestion of the respiratory system) and diluted in oil, the Cajuput also relieves herpes damage.

Origin of this essential oil

This essential oil from Cajuput from India is distilled from the leaves of the plant.


Keep away from children, air, heat and light.
