The source of Cajeput oil is the Melaleuca leucadendra, also called Melaleuca cajeputi and the Cajeput oil tree. This tree has thick white wood. It is found in Australia, the islands between Australia and Malaysia and in Indonesia. The oil is distilled from the leaves and twigs of this tree. However, before distillation, the mixture is fermented for some time. Since the oil is steam distilled, it is organic and retains its original nutrients.

It smells somewhat like hyacinth and has herbaceous undertones, which make it somewhat different from camphor oil. Blends Well With Cajeput oil goes well with tea tree oil, eucalyptus essential oil and clove essential oil. It also blends well with all kinds of spice oils, rosemary oil, lavender oil, ylang-ylang essential oil and woody oils like pine oil and cedar oil.
