Buchu: The Khoisan Cure

SLOW Magazine - - Editor's Choice -

All-nat­u­ral medicine might be a cur­rent-day trend, but it is by no means a mod­ern-day in­no­va­tion. First dis­cov­ered by the San and Khoi peo­ple cen­turies ago, the mirac­u­lous medic­i­nal prop­er­ties of the Buchu plant have since been re­dis­cov­ered over the past 15 years. As a nat­u­ral anti-in­flam­ma­tory, an­ti­sep­tic and an­ti­his­tamine, Buchu is great for treat­ing wounds, in­flam­ma­tion and many other ail­ments. Among just a few of its cures, the plant also low­ers blood pres­sure, treats UTIS and re­lieves joint pain. Cul­ti­vated 100 % or­gan­i­cally and sus­tain­ably at Skim­mel­berg Farm out­side Citrus­dal (which is well worth the visit if you ever find your­self in the area), the Buchu used in Cape King­dom’s prod­uct ranges is qual­ity as­sured. The prod­ucts range from Buchu in­fused de­tox teas, to an ar­ray of Buchulife life­style and health prod­ucts (in­clud­ing buchu waters, First Aid Gel, mois­tur­is­ing cream and soft­gel cap­sules), as well as a Buchu range for pets called Ricky Litch­field.
