BEHIND THE BUCHU SCENES
 
Skimmelberg Farm, a little further afield in Citrusdal but also well worth visiting, offers informative farm tours that teach visitors all about Buchu and Rooibos farming.
 
Visitors get the opportunity of a behindthescenes
look at the miracle plant that has become famous the world over for its medicinal properties. As Buchu is
only grown here in the Western Cape, it is definitely something to add to your bucketlist when you find yourself in the area.
 
First discovered by the Khoisan people in the 1700s, the past 15 years have seen a renaissance of the  miraculous medicinal properties of Buchu.
 
As a natural antiinflammatory antiseptic and antihistamine, the Buchu plant is great for treating wounds, skin 
inflammation, and many other ailments. Among just a few of its curative properties,the plant has been scientifically proven to lower blood pressure and blood sugar levels and help with weight loss. 
 
It has anti-aging effects, helps to treat UTIs, and relieves joint pain.
To get your hands on some of this miracie plant, you can purchase various Buchuinfused products at  Skimmelberg farm itself.
 
Beyond this, Cape Kingdom also sells a variety of buchu infused detox teas, an array of Buchulife lifestyle and health products (including Buchu water, moisturising cream and First Aid Gel, to name but a few), as well as a range of Ricky Litchfield dog products.

At the end of a day filled with activity, head back to your chalet at Cederberg Park, light a fire in your fireplace, and curl up with a good book and a glass of Kromrivier wine - an idyllic way to recharge and escape from the pressures of everyday life.
