BOTANY

Vernacularly called Cajuput or White Samet, Melaleuca Cajuputi is a large tree which grows up to 100 ft. Cajuput trees are evergreen and can reach up to 30 meters in height. They usually have a whitish, spongy bark with a crooked trunk. This evergreen tree of myrtle family is indigenous to Indonesia. It blooms white, cream, or pale yellow coloured flowers at the tip of every branch.

HISTORICAL USES

In Malaysia and other Indonesia islands, cajuput was considered a valuable treatment for cholera, colds, flu, headaches, rheumatism, throat infections, toothache, sore muscles, and for various skin conditions.

The leaves are crushed in the hand and rubbed on. Sometimes, young leaves and twigs are crushed and steeped in hot water, the liquid is used to bathe the affected area, and the rest is poured over the head. Crushed leaves are sniffed to cure headache. Cajuput was first introduced to Europe in the 17th century, and the oil was an expensive and rare commodity until the Dutch gained territory in the Moluccas (the believed origin of cajuput). It is thought that cajuput was first mentioned in The Natural History of Simple Drugs by Dr. G Guibourt in 1876.
