Malaleuca Cajeputi-Steam Distilled-Part Used: Branch. Cajeput is a sweet, penetrating camphor-like aroma.
This oil is said to be useful for treating painful periods, delayed menses and spasmodic dysmenorrhoea. Its antiseptic properties make it useful for treating acne and psoriasis. It has been used for genital herpes, hemorrhoids and varicose veins.
