Cajeput

Cajeput

Today I landed on Cajeput (Melaleuca leucadendron) which I find to be camphorous (medicinal), cineolic (menthol), herbaceous (smelled kind of dirty), and slightly sweet. Its chemical constituents:

 

  • 1,8 cineole 70.92%
  • limonene 10.61%
  • p-cymene 5.09%
  • a-terpinene 2.73%
  • a-pinene 1.81%
