Cajeput is a tall evergreen tree up to 30 metres high. The flexible trunk has a whitish spongy bark which flakes off easily. In Malaysia it is called 'caju-puti', meaning 'white wood', due to the colour of the timber.

Cajeput has been traditionally used for its antiseptic, antihelminthic, carminative and local analgesic properties by Australian aborigines.
