Description: Cajuput oil is a volatile oil obtained by distillation from the leaves of the myrtaceous tree Melaleuca Leucadendra, and probably other Melaleuca species. The trees yielding the oil are found throughout the Malay Archipelago, the Malay Peninsula and over the hotter parts of the Australian continent; but the greater portion of the oil is produced from Sulawesi. The name “cajuput” is derived from its Indonesian name, “kayu putih” or "white wood".
