Buchu General Information
Buchu is a woody small shrub native to the Cape region of South Africa. Buchu leaves are collected while the plant is flowering and fruiting and are then dried and exported from Cape Town. Buchu has many names, the plant is the same only the leaves are different. Agathosma betulina meaning the round leaves, Barosma betulina meaning the short leaves, Agathosma crenulata or Barosma crenulata meaning the oval leaves, and Barosma serratifolia or Agathosma serratifolia meaning the long leaves. The Hottentots tribe first used it as stimulant-tonic and stomach remedy because of its soothing effects. It has a peppermint-like flavor and was also used in brandies and wines. Buchu became an official British medicine in 1821, being listed in the British Pharmacopoeia as an effective remedy for cystitis, urethritis, nephritis and catarrh of the bladder and it was listed in the National Formulary as a urinary antiseptic and diuretic.

Buchu Uses & Scientific Evidence For
The principal active constituent of the volatile oil of this herb is camphor or diosphenol (Buchu camphor). It also contains pulegone (naturally occurring organic compound obtained from essential oils), an abortifacient and powerful emmenagogue which stimulates menstrual flow. The prescription drugs Fluidex and Odrinil relieve premenstrual bloating, and both contain Buchu. Today, Buchu is still used in treating inflammation of the urethra, blood in the urine, bladder infections, and other chronic urinary tract disorders. It is also said to be an effective remedy for kidney stones, cystitis, and rheumatism. This herb has also been used for treating prostatitis (inflammation of the prostate gland) and irritable bladder. It acts as an anti-inflammatory and helps reduce inflammation of the colon, gums, mucous membranes, prostate, sinuses, and vagina. An infusion is used for treating a yeast infection and leucorrhea (A thick, whitish discharge from the vagina). This herb has carminative properties and is used to relieve gas and bloating.

Buchu Dosage Information
If using Buchu for the treatment of a urinary tract infection, it is important to have a proper diagnosis for this ailment as this herb is completely ineffective in treating sexually transmitted diseases that can mask themselves as a urinary infection. It is best to read and follow product label directions for use, or seek the advice of your physician for the treatment of your specific condition.
