Description for Buchu

Agathosma betulina is a flowering plant in the family Rutaceae, native to the lower elevation mountains of western South Africa, where it occurs near streams in fynbos habitats.

Two species of Agathosma endemic to the Western Cape mountains of South Africa and colloquially referred to as Buchu are cultivated on a commercial basis for their essential oils, Agathosma betulina and Agathosma crenulata. The leaves of Agathosma betulina have traditionally been used as an herbal remedy for ailments of the gastrointestinal and urinary tracts as it has diuretic and antiseptic properties due to various phenolic compounds
