What is Cajeput?
A relative of eucalyptus and tea tree, cajeput (Melaleuca cajeputi) is a medium-tall tree in the Myrtle family native to Australia and Southeast Asia. It has distinct white paper-like bark and blooms with eye-catching white flower spikes. Also known as cajuput and river tea tree, it is known in Indonesia as “kayu putih,” meaning “white wood,” and as “katupruhi” in Ayurveda.
Cajeput trees are notably resistant to forest fires; it’s this natural resistance that has long made it associated with a long life! It’s been incorporated into traditional Ayurvedic wellness practices and has been used in several cultures to protect against evil and cleanse idols and totems used for spiritual rituals.
