Buchu Products

Buchu is native to South Africa and has a long history of traditional use among the San Bushmen and Khosian people. With oily looking leaves and pretty star shaped white or pink flowers, Buchu is endemic to the Western Cape and only grown in and around the Cederberg Mountains. It is a shrub that is well adapted to grow in dry regions. The leaves have round oil glands found scattered across the leaf, which release an aromatic golden oil with a sweet peppermint-like odour 

As far back as 10,000 years, Buchu was an integral part of a marriage ceremony when it was used as a beauty treatment for the bride. Women from the Khoi San would lather the bride from head to toe in a mixture of Buchu and eland fat. It also played a part in childbirth, with Buchu being used for protection and cleansing after the birth of a baby. 

Buchu was also drunk as a fragrant tea, made into tinctures and the oil extracted for its many benefits. Indigo Herbs is delighted to bring you Buchu Leaf Tincture, harnessing the power of this herb in easy to take tincture form.

Taking herbs in a Tincture or Fluid extract preparation is simple and easy. The tincture can be measured out in a small ml measuring cup, medicine cup or spoon, and the tincture can be taken directly.

However some people do find the bitter tincture taste to be too strong, so it may be a good idea to dilute the drops in water or fruit juice. For children, the elderly, those with a sensitive constitution or those avoiding alcohol, the alcohol can be evaporated from the tincture. This can be done by putting the drops in boiling water and leaving for 10 minutes to evaporate. For full instructions go to our How to take Herbal Tincture page.

Buchu Leaf Tincture can be added to water or fruit juice and taken when required.

Traditionally Taken: 2-3ml taken 2-3 times per day, or as directed by a Herbal Practitioner.

20 drops from the glass dropper equals approximately 1ml.

After careful harvesting, selection and cleaning the Buchu leaves used to make this tincture undergo a process of cold percolation in order to extract the active constituents into tincture form. The cold percolation method employs a gradient circulation of the solution which keeps the plant ingredients in perpetual contact with the ethanol. This technique is faster and more efficient than maceration and ensures there is less waste of precious plant materials. This premium quality product is manufactured to GMP standards and Quality Assured by Indigo Herbs. It is 100% pure botanical ingredients, completely free of synthetic ingredients with absolutely nothing added.

Buchu, Alcohol, Water

Not recommended for pregnant or breastfeeding women.

Do not use Buchu 2 weeks before or after scheduled surgery.

May cause stomach irritation.

If you are suffering from acute kidney infection or liver disease, do not use this herb unless recommended by your healthcare practitioner.
