When it comes to natural health remedies, Agathosma betulina, or buchu as it’s more commonly known, comes out on top.
Buchu is an evergreen, flowering shrub that’s indigenous to South Africa. It forms part of the Cape’s fynbos plant kingdom. The leaves of the buchu plant are a fantastic source of minerals, anti-oxidants, flavonoids and vitamins.
Today buchu is hugely popular for its healing properties and unique flavour. However, knowledge of this plant is far from new to the human race. The use of buchu was first documented by the Dutch colonists in Cape Town as far back as 1652, and prior to that the indigenous Khoisan people used it for its medicinal and anti-ageing properties.Â Buchu was even used during the Crimean and First World Wars as an antiseptic to clean battlefield wounds.
