Hi Alissa,

: This is really close to my own method/recipe. I prefer the cajeput
: oil I have over the tea tree. I have the walmart tea tree, which
: a certain amount of tea tree funk to it's aroma. Cajeput is
: menthol/minty and it just sits nicer in my nose. And it gives the
: nicest stain (esp. for its price) of all the terps I've tried
: (ravensara, frankincense, tea tree).
So, if you see this post (this thread is dropping downwards rapidly),
I'd love to hear what you mean by "nicest stain" regarding Cajeput.
Maureen has basically told me the same thing in email (that she
prefers Cajeput to Tea Tree). I have only tried Tea Tree oil, and
I've certainly had good results from it, but the smell is rather, uh,
sharp... to say the least. So I wouldn't mind switching to Cajeput.
I'll probably get some eventually and do my own tests. But in the
meantime, I'd love to hear more details of your own experiences with
