Smell the Fresh, Leafy Scent of Cajuput
Medicinal Uses of Cajuput Essential Oil
Despite not being used widely in cosmetic or even culinary applications, Cajuput offers a wide plethora of medicinal uses.
Wards off infection and bacteria
It works as an antiseptic, one of its most popular features, which is efficient in warding off infections from viruses, bacteria, fungi, and other organisms. It, in turn, is potent in fighting off tetanus, cholera, and typhoid, as well as other infectious diseases.
Works as an insecticide
Cajuput's sweet, fresh scent also makes it a great vermifuge as well as insecticide. It drives away insects, but watch out, its insecticidal properties are quite potent that you need to dilute the solution. At best, use a vaporizer to drive away those bugs.
