This week we take a break from our usual “Herb of the Day” posts to look at an essential oil, Cajeput. Found in our January item of the month, Lympha Rub, cajeput is distilled from the same genus as melaleuca (aka tea tree) oil. The family of melaleuca plants is native to Australia and the essential oils are all closely related to one another. Typically used alongside other essential oils, this is a popular oil among both herbalists and aromatherapists with a wide range of traditional uses.

- Insect Repellant
- Tooth Pain
- Oily Skin
This is our best-selling and most versatile product. It contains combined essential oils of Lemon, Cajeput, Lavender, Clove, Myrrh and Chamomile in a base of Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil. Our customers often keep bottles in multiple places around the home, diaper bag, work, purses, etc. It can be used topically on swollen glands, sore joints, the back of the neck, the chest, and many other places. Adults and older children may also use one drop per 50lbs of body weight (up to 3 max) in the back of their throat.
