The roots of Buchu can be traced to the Cape Floral Kingdom, a World Heritage site situated in the Western Cape Mountains of Southern Africa. It was here in the early 1700’s, that the indigenous Khoisan people introduced Buchu to the first Cape settlers. The Khoisan considered the herb to be a cure for all ills and an aid to longevity.
