Our tea tree oil soap contains two “Melaleucas”, Australian Tea Tree and Cajeput. Being of the “Melaleuca” genus, they both, arguably, have similar properties, though the more well-known essential oil is “Australian Tea Tree” essential oil.
Most people know “Melaleucas” (tea tree oil genus) as great anti bacterial agents, great for acne, fighting fungus, etc. Cajeput has a bit more “woodsy” smell to it, similar Eucalyptus but a touch less “camphorous”. We put generous portions of both oils in this bar for a fantastic duo of goodies (yes this is soap, not medicine so study/decide for yourself the benefits of tea tree oil).
