Cajepute essential oil

€5.12

The cajepute is a natural tree from Australia. It is the same botanical genus of the tea tree, although its essential oil has a different chemical composition.

In addition to the antiseptic properties, cajepute essential oil has spasmolytic, anti-inflammatory activities, and may be useful in the case of colic or arthritic pain.
Constituents: 1,8-Cineole, α-terpineol, limonene.
