Buchu: Cure of the Cape

Premier Magazine (South AFrica) - - Travel -

Grow­ing nowhere else in the world apart from on the rocky slopes of the Ceder­berg in the Cape, Buchu is a Fyn­bos plant with a host of medic­i­nal prop­er­ties. Re­ferred to glob­ally as a “mir­a­cle plant”, Buchu is best known for its anti-in­flam­ma­tory and pain re­lief prop­er­ties. The plant also low­ers blood pres­sure, blood-sugar lev­els, and is a nat­u­ral an­ti­sep­tic and an­ti­his­tamine. For a be­hind-the-scenes look at how it is grown, visit Skim­mel­berg Farm just out­side Citrus­dal for an in­for­ma­tive farm tour (by ap­point­ment) and to pur­chase some Buchu-in­fused prod­ucts, in­clud­ing an ar­ray of Buchulife life­style and health prod­ucts, detox teas, and Ricky Litch­field dog prod­ucts. Spend the night at the nearby Ceder­berg Park at Krom­riv­ier that of­fers both lux­ury camp­sites and self­ca­ter­ing chalets.
