Buchu Betulina Essential Oil

Buchu is a small evergreen shrub belonging to the Rutaceae family.

It bears white, star-like flowers. The essential oil is extracted from its small, 1cm long leaves by steam distillation.

Buchu is a native South African plant and was traditionally used by the indigenous Khoi-San. In Khoi-San traditions, massage and touch played an important role. They were referred to as  “people who anointed their bodies with bushes”, because of their habit of massaging with powdered aromatic bushes. In this precise case, the Khoi-San mixed the Buchu leaves with the sheep fat as an ointment.
