Buchu leaf powder (Barosma betulina)Latin Name: Barosma betulina
Common Names: Buchu leaf powder
If you had lived in Victorian England and had had a bit too much ale and whiskey at the local neighborhood pub the night before, you might have tried buchu leaf powder to aid a hangover.
Today, we know that the only real cure for a hangover is to avoid drinking too much. However, it’s a good bet that buchu leaf powder, also called barsoma betulina, has been historically used for bladder complaints for centuries among the Zulus and other indigenous peoples of present-day South Africa.
The cut barosama betulina leaves can be brewed in tea and drunk. The Buchu plant itself is a small flowering shrub, not an “herb” in the technical sense. Nonetheless, as a botanical, barosma betulina is often categorized with dried herbs and flowers, ground roots, essential oils and seeds used for therapeutic purposes
