A herb which grows wild and abundant in South Africa.
Tinctures, oleoresins and other extracts are products for pharmaceutical purposes.
 
One of the main constituents of Buchu is Diosphenol, a terpenoid phenol. It is responsible for the antiseptic effect. A significant percentage of menthone in the oil is probably the cause of the
minty odor and somewhat cool flavor of the oil.
 
The main chemical component of buchu oil: d-pulegone, iso-pulegone, diosphenol, 4-diosphenol, iso-menthone and menthone.
 
Buchu leaf is used in:
chypre bases, certain types of colognes, etc. for its powerful,
diffusion and freshness.
 
Color: Pale yellow to deep yellow liquid, can crystallize
Odor: Very peculiar: strong, bitter-sweet, minty-camphoraceous, rootlike, penetrating & somewhat medicinal, reminiscent of cough preparations.
 
The leaves have a rue-like smell, and are used by the natives to perfume their bodies.

Caution:
May cause skin irritation.
Do not use during pregnancy. 
External use only.
Do NOT use undiluted on the skin.
Store away from children & pets.
