It is anti-septic, anti-inflammatory, anti-microbial, anti-rheumatic, anti-arthritic, carminative (preventative of flatulence, a digestive aid, and acts as a diuretic. Being a diuretic it supports the flushing out of toxins like excess salt, uric acid, and many others substances from the body by increasing both the frequency and quantity of urination. This in effect will help to keep the urinary tract and kidneys clean and free from toxins and possible infections caused by these toxins. Buchu has deep roots in South African traditional medicine, where it has been used for generations to address various ailments. Now it has been approved by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) to be a natural weight management supplement. In herbal medicine Buchu was used on inflammation, cystitis, urethritis, kidney, UTIs, and used as a stomach tonic. Before the dawn of modern medicine, Buchu was a trusted medicinal plant used by the San and Khoisan (indigenous cultures of Southern Africa). Today Buchu is hugely popular for its healing properties and unique flavour. What makes buchu truly remarkable is its complex blend of bioactive compounds. The leaves of the Buchu plant (Agathosma betulina) are rich in essential oils, flavonoids, and antioxidants, contributing to its effects. The primary essential oil in Buchu, known as diosphenol, is a key player in its therapeutic profile, offering a unique aroma and powerful health benefits. Try adding our Bush Apple Syrup to sweeten, it really brings out the taste and makes this Medicinal Tea even more enjoyable.
