Finest Origin - Highest Grade

Our Buchu plants are grown in their region of origin, the Western Cape Province of South Africa, by a family farm in a controlled organic way since 2019. Located at the Cape of Good Hope, this province with a dry temperate climate experiences cold, blustery winds from the Atlantic Ocean in spring and summer. These special climatic conditions coupled with mineral-rich soils create the ideal conditions for the formation of the unique active ingredients, such as isomenthones, limonene, diosphenols, for which this plant species is known. The sulfur active substances contained in the plant are unique in their combination and are reminiscent of the aroma of black currant. The fresh, aromatic leaves and twigs are harvested in the late summer months of the southern hemisphere (February and March), and the highly pure essential oil is distilled under gentle steam.


The family business was founded in South Africa in 1993. It specializes in the cultivation, conventional and controlled organic, and wild collection of partly endemic essential oil plants. The cultivated plants thrive on their large farm near the coast, where they are harvested at the optimal harvest time and sorted as well as processed in their own production facility. The processing of the plants takes place in their own steam distillation plant. The quality of the products is high and certified. The family business cooperates worldwide and locally with South African tea and cosmetic companies.


Buchu plants of the rue family (Rutaceae) are exclusively native to South Africa with about 140 species of the genus (Agathosma). Buchu, Agathosma betulina, is a shrub growing up to two meters high and endemic to the Western Cape region of South Africa. The shrub's richly branched branches bear light to yellow-green, round, leathery foliage and white, pink or purple star-shaped flowers. In the wild, the aromatic buchu shrub is found on sandy soils at elevations of 300 to 700 meters. Buchu is a valued, multi-use indigenous medicinal plant, it is considered a 'fountain of youth' and acts as an insect repellent.


The minty-fresh, berry aroma has a refreshing and strengthening effect on body and mind. It has a very mobilizing effect and stimulates the drive. A real 'get up and go' oil.
