A relative of the celebrated tea tree, cajeput is native to parts of Australia and Southeast Asia and has white paper-like bark. While its trunk is its most notable feature, cajeput primarily conveys its beneficial properties through its leaves, which are the source of its oil. The clean, subtly fruity fragrance of cajeput is frequently compared to tea tree and eucalyptus, another botanical cousin.
