Caju-Puti is the Malaysian way of saying Cajuput, and the word literally means “White Wood.” This tall evergreen tree does have white sponge-like bark and is covered with pointed, flat green leaves decorated with puffs of bushy white flowers.

Traditional Uses and Lore:

The tree is so elegant and lovely to look at that in parts of Asia it is often planted for decorative purposes; it lends itself well as a subject for paintings. The pretty leaves were discovered by ancient peoples to emit a powerful essence when crushed. Traditionally, the essence from these leaves was considered important medicine for colds, infections, muscle pain, and to expel roundworm.

Cajuput is a tree of the Melaleuca variety. Known for the lingering camphorous scent that is simultaneously warming and cooling sensations similar to Eucalyptus. Cajuput is a wonderful antiseptic for colds and removing mucous. It is also excellent as a muscle rub, insect repellent, and migraine reliever. The greatest advantage over Eucalyptus is that its 1.8 cineol content is much lower, usually around 50%, which makes it much milder and more suitable for children.
