Common Names: Cajeputi
Parts Used: Circulatory fluid of the Cajeput Tree
Cajeput comes to us from the tropics of India and the Molucca Islands of Indonesia. This small tree, or tall bush with drooping limbs, is much like a weeping willow, with multiple layers of paper-like thin bark. Cajeput oil is related, in function, to something called “Tea Tree Oil,” but the action, and not unpleasing taste of Cajeput, is preferred by a great many herbalists. In spite of its tropical home in a humid, hot environment, the Cajeput tree does not fall prey to fungus or infections because of the antibiotic oil which circulates in its sap (circulatory fluid). This oil can be taken by people for the same purpose.
If candida yeast infections are a problem, then mix three to four drops with a little food and eat at each meal. Naturally, to prevent reinfection, “drug antibiotics” must be eliminated from the diet, as well as meats, where the animals have been fed on antibiotics as part of their diet. Another thing to consider, is possible reinfection where the yeast problem would be traded back and forth. In this respect, sexual partners must exercise care to prevent reinfection. A bowel program is also a must to eliminate the bowel residues which play host to, and furnish a convenient home base for the yeast to retreat to or attack from.
If a cold or the flu, sprinkle a few drops of Oil of Cajeput on a handkerchief or tissue and breathe deeply, as needed, to keep nostrils open. To open stopped up sinuses immediately, put one drop of Oil of Cajeput in one half cup of water (distilled is best) and irrigate the nose, lean the head back and sniff several drops through the nose into the throat. An eyedropper is a good aid to this procedure. In cases of flu, fever, tight chest and or laryngitis, place one to two drops directly on the tongue and apply several drops to the throat and chest area. Cover up and sweat the mucus loose as the oil penetrates and breaks up the infected mucus. You may cough up mucus as tough as tire treads, but you will be well in a very short time. Oil of Cajeput is a pain reliever if sinus blockages or headaches occur. Apply the oil to the painful area and the pain leaves.
The same can be done for toothaches or tooth abscesses, to clean them. Place one drop of the oil on a cotton ball and lay between the gums and cheek and leave there until relief. For external sores and abscesses that just won't heal, mix one part Oil of Cajeput with three parts olive oil, place on gauze and lay over the area. The area will slough off dis-eased tissue and build healthy, pink, repaired tissue in short order.
For relief of swollen breast(s) due to congestion, apply full strength to breast(s) externally as needed. For boils and carbuncles (multiple boils involving an area), generously rub the Oil of Cajeput directly on the area. The oil will penetrate at once and relieve the pain, and mix with the purulent (pus) material and push it out or dissolve it.
Oil of Cajeput is very handy to have around the house for ordinary cuts and scrapes, as well as, serious cuts and gashes. In these cases apply, as needed, full strength to heal without a scar and prevent infection. You need not “medically wash” the area and cause more pain. Just apply, or let drip on, the Oil of Cajeput. Swellings around the toenails or fingernails are repaired by a few drops directly applied.
Ringworm and external fungus infection, such as athletes foot, are also quickly dispatched by Cajeput. If “dryness” occurs in the area where Oil of Cajeput is used, also apply oil from 100 or 400 units Vitamin E capsules. If head lice, mix one part Oil of Cajeput with three parts of olive oil and apply to the scalp. Leave on overnight and shampoo next morning. Repeat each evening until free of lice. Then, ten days after free of lice, repeat process to kill any remaining lice or hatched eggs. In cases of “colitis problems” with hemorrhages, apply 80 drops of Cajeput Oil, three times per day to the abdominal area.
When “erosion of the cervix” occurs, douche daily with five drops of Cajeput in one cup of distilled water. The same mixture can be used as a vaginal douche for gonorrhea. Impetigo (a highly infectious rash of yellow, pus-filled skin blisters) can be fully corrected in a short time by direct applications. Oil of Cajeput is truly a potent weapon among our herbal resources for building better health naturally.
Recommended Dosage: Apply to chest to expel mucus. And as given above. For mosquito and insect bites, apply directly to the area. To repel mosquito’s, apply EXTERNALLY TO EXPOSED AREA. Do not get in the eyes. If this happens accidentally, flush with water.
