Cajeput oil is produced by steam distillation of the fresh leaves and twigs of the cajeput tree (Melaleuca leucadendra) and the paper bark tree (Melaleuca quinquenervia). This oil is known for its antiseptic and analgesic properties. It is also considered an anti-inflammatory and is sometimes used to treat minor skin wounds, colds and inflammatory skin conditions. Despite being used as a natural product, tea tree oil is as effective as traditional medicine. Like all essential oils, it should be diluted in a carrier oil before applying to the skin.
The main chemical components of Cajeput oil include eucalyptol, limonene, β-caryophyllene, α-pinene, etc.
1. Eucalyptol: has anti-inflammatory activity in asthma and is expected to be a mucolytic agent for upper and lower respiratory tract diseases.
2. Limonene: It has anti-cancer activity and has anti-cancer effects on breast cancer, colon cancer, lung cancer and leukemia.
3. β-Caryophyllene: For endometriosis, it has an effective anti-inflammatory effect.
1. Relieve colds, coughs, sinusitis and bronchitis.
2. Relieve rheumatoid arthritis and sciatica.
3. Relieve abdominal cramps, colic and dysentery. It also helps with cramps in children.
4. Relieve the pain of insect bites, very suitable for emergency treatment, especially for those who are allergic to insect bites.
5. Improve acne, pimples, suitable for oily skin care. Also effective for dermatitis and eczema (0.5-2%).
6. In hair care, it can also improve the medicinal qualities of ointment oil. Scalp care and hair growth may be two of the benefits. However, there is no evidence that cajeput can treat hair loss or any scalp disorders.
7. Helps relieve anxiety and stress.
8. Preservatives and fungicides
They are probably the most prized properties of castor oil. It is very effective in eliminating bacterial, viral and fungal infections such as tetanus (bacteria), influenza (virus) and infectious diseases such as cholera and typhoid. It can be applied topically on wounds caused by rust to protect against tetanus until appropriate vaccinations are given.
9. The antioxidant properties of Melaleuca essential oil also help reduce blemishes on the skin while protecting the skin from free radical damage. It is also an excellent moisturizer, so consistent use of Melaleuca oil on the skin can make it smoother, even skin tone, and radiant.
Melaleuca essential oil can also treat different skin problems like carbuncles, scabies, eczema and boils. Additionally, it has the ability to heal damaged tissue that has turned red from an abscess. Its antimicrobial properties help prevent any wounds and wound infections. Use this oil on your cuts, cuts, scrapes, and burns and you'll be surprised how quickly they heal. Melaleuca essential oil is a popular ingredient in cosmetics, body lotions, soaps, and antiseptic creams.
10. Reduce stomach upset
The corrosive properties of Melaleuca essential oil help reduce gas and acidity passing through the stomach. It helps prevent the development of excess gas and, if formed, helps it to escape easily. In addition, it helps reduce cramps and cramps caused by upset stomach.
This particular essential oil is good for viruses, microbes, fungi, as well as bacterial bacteria, and can protect your body from a variety of bacterial infections including cholera, typhoid, and the flu.
12. Toothache relief
It works much like clove oil in reducing toothache. Put a few drops of vanilla oil on a cotton ball. Put this special cotton ball in a sore tooth. This gives a quick rest from the toothache and can last for hours. In addition, it disinfects teeth and kills many bacteria in the mouth.
Gas is unpleasant, uncomfortable, and embarrassing. Thankfully, in case you only have a small bottle of Melaleuca essential oil in your medicine cabinet, you can leave your gas problems behind. Melaleuca essential oil functions as a carminative, which means it not only provides instant relief, but it also prevents the development of gas, as well as eliminates gas lurking in your gut.
This essential oil is another great digestive aid, boosting the secretion of enzymes in the digestive juices to help break down food efficiently and absorb its nutrients. This special calming oil helps prevent digestive complaints such as colic, indigestion, cramps, dysentery and enteritis.
When properly diluted and tested for allergic reactions, cajeput oil is safe to use on your hair and skin. Do not take essential oils by mouth.
1. For skin care
Once the patch test is done, the diluted cajeput oil can be used on a larger area of the skin. You can apply it directly to minor cuts, scratches and rashes. Another option is to add a few drops to an ounce of body lotion.
2. For hair care
You can also apply diluted cajeput oil to your hair just as you would use it on your skin. Another option is to add a few drops of essential oil to your shampoo and massage it into your scalp.
3. In aromatherapy
Inhaling cajeput oil directly from the bottle is not recommended, you may consider diffusing the essential oil into aromatherapy. You may temporarily relieve congestion and headaches, but it's unclear whether aromatherapy can have a significant effect on pain and inflammation in this way.
4. Purify indoor air
Melaleuca essential oil kills bacteria in the air. The best way is to let the essential oil diffuse in the room for 20 minutes. Do not exceed one hour, as prolonged inhalation can have side effects (induced high blood pressure and anxiety).
5. Relieves Rheumatoid Arthritis and Sciatica
Dilute Melaleuca essential oil with base oil to a concentration of about 10%, and wipe the affected area to relieve pain.
6. Relieve dyspnea and help restore normal breathing rhythm
Make a massage oil (10-15%) with Melaleuca essential oil and massage on the chest and neck.
Although cajeputa oil is considered natural, it can still cause side effects similar to other types of essential oils. Symptoms may include:
Redness of the skin
If you are using the oil topically on the skin and hair, it is important to dilute the cajeput with a base oil first. Some essential oils are dangerous to pregnant and nursing women, children, and pets. Tea tree oil may also cause drug interactions. If you are currently taking any prescription or over-the-counter medicines, please consult your doctor before using cajeput.
