In addition to the tissue box and your personal inhaler, meet your new best friend during the cold and flu season! Valued in Malaysia and the Indonesian Islands for relieving symptoms of colds, flu, throat infections, and headaches, Cajeput is an excellent essential oil to have on hand when seasonal illnesses attack.
A cousin to Tea Tree Oil, Cajeput is somewhat milder and less overpowering with a slightly lemony and camphorous scent. If you like the smell of menthol cough drops, you will love its fresh, fruity, and uplifting aroma! As a natural expectorant, diffuse or inhale Cajeput to help clear up congestion and loosen phlegm.
Besides keeping your respiratory health in check, Cajeput essential oil has tons of other benefits owing to its properties as an analgesic, anticatarrhal, anti-infectious, anti-inflammatory, anti-microbial, antineuralgic, antiseptic, antispasmodic, expectorant, insecticidal, and tonic. You can use it to help ease muscle strains, spasms, back pain, rheumatism, and menstrual cramps. Dilute and apply alone or mixed with castor oil or other antiseptic lotions and apply to sore areas for some relief!
Itchy bug bites? Blend Cajeput essential oil with some Lavender and Chamomile Roman and apply directly to the bumps and bites to help soothe the area.

Essential oils are natural, but they are also concentrated. We recommend following basic safety precautions when using your oils:
Essential oils should not be ingested, unless it is under the guidance of a suitably qualified practitioner.
Do not use oils undiluted on the skin, unless the instructions permit otherwise. Many oils can cause irritation when placed directly on skin, particularly on sensitive areas such as the eyes or mouth. Some oils (particularly those in the citrus family) can cause photosensitivity if used prior to going out in the sun - please check instructions carefully.
If you are pregnant or breastfeeding, you should consult your healthcare practitioner prior to using essential oils. As a general guideline, oils should be avoided for the first four months of pregnancy and never used undiluted. Some oils should be avoided during pregnancy: Bay, Basil, Cedar wood, Clary Sage, Comfrey, Cypress, Fennel, Ginger, Hyssop, Jasmine, Juniper, Lemongrass, Marjoram, Melissa, Myrrh, Peppermint, Rose, Rosemary, Sage & Thyme.
Children can be particularly affected by essential oils. Some oils should not be used in children under the age of 7, and specific dilution ratios are recommended depending on the essential oil and the age of the child. We recommend consulting an appropriate practitioner prior to using oils on children.
