About: Also known as cajeput. This is the original species from which all the melaleuca species evolved. It’s sometimes called white tree, due to its lightcolored bark. The tree bark has been used as roofing and flooring material, and in Australia the plant was traditionally used by Aboriginal people for aches, pains, and headaches. In an herbal dated 1876, cajuput is mentioned as useful in treating intestinal problems.
