Escentia Cajeput (Melaleuca leucadendron) Oil has antibacterial and antiviral properties that make it a great oil to help treat colds, influenza, sore throats and even cold sores. Cajeput oil can also be used to help relieve pain associated with neuralgia, muscle stiffness, rheumatism and menstruation.
Standard Oil vs. Essential Oil
Certain industries, and very large users, require material which is standardised so that the balance of chemical constituents is maintained, as well as the odour profile, which can easily differ seasonally and due to differing weather conditions. An oil may therefore be rectified by adding certain natural and/or nature identical aromatic ingredients, to maintain standards required by food, pharmaceutical, dental and beverage industries. This class is, however, not necessarily inferior in quality or efficacy.
Essential oils are extracted directly from a plant source with no addition of other compounds. Essentially – plant to bottle.
