Botanical Name: Melaleuca cajeputi
Steam distilled from the leaves and twigs
Scent: similar but less medicinal than tea tree oil; bright and slight fruity.
Blends well with cedarwood, clove bud, labdanum, origanum, rosemary and thyme.
Properties: antiseptic, anti-microbial, analgesic, anti-neuralgic, antispasmodic and insecticidal.
Precaustion: there have not been any studies concerning using cajeput essential oils during pregnancy. Thus, cajeput is neither on "safe during pregnancy" nor "avoid during pregnancy" lists. In the properly diluted amount of <10ml per 100g henna powder, there should not be an issue... But for liability sake, I will list here to avoid using on pregnant women.
