Organic Buchu Body Butter

Ingredients: Certified organic oils of coconut, olive, palm, cocoa butter, castor, sweet almond, buchu, rosemary, lemongrass, rose geranium essential oils, vanilla, orris root

Uses: A fun oil for every day use. Buchu is a herb that assists the skin to regenerate – let me not say it keeps the skin young, but technically it has the same effect. It is extremely rich in vitamin C. I also add rosemary which is full of anti-oxidants and phytosterols, so essentially it assists the skin to recover quickly from the stresses and strains of daily life. Then some rose geranium, which is slightly astringent (ensures that no pores are blocked) and smells nice. A few drops of lemongrass increases the astringency and ensures a slight tang to the fragrance. Organic vanilla pods are steeped in the olive oil for a few days and this goes into the mix. Vanilla is also emollient and enhances the sweet smell. I mix both emollients and astringents to get a balanced oil, this combination leaves your skin open, fresh and fed.

Buchu Oil Extra Strength

Ingredients: Certified organic oils of coconut, olive, palm, buchu, rosemary, mint, uncertified organic comfrey, African wormwood, Khoegoed, natural beeswax.

Uses: An oil that will promote the healing of itches, cuts, bruises or minor burns, helpful in closing open sores and so is useful for weeping eczema. This is the oil to use on scars, applied twice a day for six months it will assist the scar to fade and allow the skin to restore itself. We have had feedback from many of our customers that it also helps to reduce severe dark spots and promote even skintone. No doubt Buchu’s adaptogenic qualities play a role in this regard.

Price: R65 (10 ml round container)



Arthritis Oil

Ingredients: Certified organic oils of coconut and olive, uncertified organic Devil’s claw (Harpagophytum), Fennel, Khoegoed (Helichrysum), Turmeric, Willow, beeswax

Uses: Great feedback received from customers who felt a huge improvement in their arthritic conditions. Devil’s claw is a herbal anti-inflammatory native to Namibia, which has been used for centuries in arthritic and rheumatic conditions. It is also one of the few known herbs effective against chronic lower back pain. The remaining ingredients are also anti-inflammatory painkillers. Rub this oil on arthritic joints, feel the pain disappear and mobility regained.

eczema oil

Eczema  Oil

Ingredients: Certified organic oils of coconut, olive and shea, bulbinella,  chamomile, buchu,  and beeswax.

Uses: Increased levels of pollution in our  cosmetics, water and food, especially with respect to glyphosate and other endocrine system disruptors, appears to have triggered an epidemic of eczema. While obviously the full treatment of this condition requires changes in diet as well as a low stress lifestyle, in the meantime relief will be found with our Eczema Oil. We recommend using this oil in conjunction with the Organic Buchu soap, or any one of our delicious organic soaps. This daily skincare regimen has been successful in clearing the condition amongst our customers.

Bulbinella is a cousin of Aloe vera and has similar high protein, emollient qualities. It also possesses natural corticosteroids which do not have the side effects of synthetic cortisones.   Chamomile and buchu is all you need to reduce reddening, itches and flare-ups.

Organic Buchu Soap

Ingredients: Certified organic saponified oils of coconut and olive, buchu, rosemary and lavender essential oils

Uses: I use the hard soap for my hands and body, especially when I am travelling, because quite honestly I get so spoilt with my organic soaps that I find it quite a shock to adjust to hotel and restaurants soaps on the road. It also makes a nice shampoo which restores the hair if it has been over-treated, returning shine and bounce. I have to wash my hair every working day so I can guarantee that buchu soap is mild and gentle on the scalp

Price: R75 (100 grams)





Ingredients: Certified organic saponified oils of coconut, shea, olive and castor,  rose and red Brazilian clay, activated charcoal, waxberry and rooibos, vetiver and rosemary essential oils.

Uses:  A scrubby soap for ingrown hairs and hard skin.

Price:     R50 (100 grams) Natural

               R 75.00 (100 grams) Organic



Baby Liquid Buchu Soap

Ingredients: Certified organic saponified oils of coconut, olive, palm, castor, buchu and chamomile.

Uses: Just a whiff of chamomile and buchu. Chamomile is soothing and anti-allergenic, while the buchu helps to heal where the itches have been scratched open.

Price: R140 (250 ml bottle)


acne liquid soap

Acne Liquid Soap

Ingredients: Saponified Certified Organic Coconut and Grapeseed oil,  Bentonite Clay, Soapwort, Buchu, Mint and Lemongrass.



The latest research on acne shows that it is not due to chocolate at all (as they used to say during my youth) but to inflammation. Inflammation is one of the most common problems we find amongst our clientele, partly due to the prevalence of pesticides and herbicides in our environment, and partly due to the petrochemical cleansers used for facial hygiene. Both categories are substances which disturb the balance of your hormones, indeed the entire endocrine system, and cause acne. The problem is not hard to fix, we merely took the best herbal anti-inflammatories available and put them in a liquid soap. We used grapeseed oil as the basis for our soap because it is light, sinks in quickly and does not clog pores. We soaked it in Bentonite clay for its detoxifying properties and added plenty of soapwort for the gentlest deepest cleanse possible. Wash face morning and night.

acne lotion

Acne Lotion

Ingredients: Certified Organic Coconut and Grapeseed oil,  Bentonite Clay, Devil’s Claw, Turmeric, Fennel, Buchu, Mint and Lemongrass.



Simply apply the soothing lotion after washing.  Finally an end to drying and irritating products!  You should be able to see a change immediately, but give the treatment two or three weeks to see a lasting difference. Your face will clear up, and your skin will be smooth and softly lustrous.

[fourcol_one]Natural Liquid Soap[/fourcol_one] [fourcol_three_last]

Buchu Liquid Soap

Ingredients: Saponified oil of olive, coconut, castor and sesame, buchu, lavender and rosemary

Uses: Buchu Liquid Soap is the closest you will get to a traditional KhoeSan soap today. The Khoesan made soap with the ashes of the  ganna bos (Salsola aphylla) which is an interesting plant in that it contains a constant 37 % potassium. This allowed us to calculate the amount of oils needed with precision. So for those of you who like to keep in tradition, this is the soap for you!

Price: R 120 (250ml)

Uses: A very popular bar. The solid shampoo allows us to reduce use of plastic in the packaging and works just as well. Hemp for hair is a very old traditional use, no doubt based on the very high levels of protein in hemp oil. These feed your hair shaft, strengthening it and leading to thicker hair.This bar is normally used in conjunction with our Shea Butter and Honey for Hair.

Price: R50 (100 grams)

These are products made from a blend of certified organic, wild-harvested and natural ingredients. We are trying to bring you the best of organics in an affordable price range.

SBand Sorange

Shea Butter and Orange Soap

Ingredients:  Certified organic Coconut and Olive oils, wild-harvested Shea Butter,  Buchu, Lavender and Sweet Orange organic essential oils.

Uses:  Citrus oils are lovely for that get-up-and-go feeling, but are sometimes perceived as drying. Sweet orange gives you all the benefits of citrus without the astringency. The contrast between the pungency of the orange and the gentleness of Shea makes this one of our most popular bars.

Price: R50.00 (100gs)




SBand honey

Shea Butter and Honey Cream

Ingredients:  Certified organic Coconut  and Olive oil, wild-harvested Shea Butter and beeswax,  honey, Buchu, Lavender, Rose Geranium, Lemongrass and Neroli essential oils.

Uses:  One of our absolute best sellers. Especially in Gauteng and other Highveld provinces this remains in constant demand.

The perfect pairing for the fusion soap is our fusion body cream. Honey is a humectant, meaning it draws moisture from the air into the skin, and traditionally was a favourite skin care ingredient of the Khoesan along with beeswax. Marrying tradition in a fusion fashion led us to our choice of essential oils. Neroli (orange blossom) is a sweet fragrance just offset by the sweetness of  our indigenous Rose Geranium, the tang of Lemongrass and the sharpness of Lavender. Altogether this is a fantastic scent in a cream formulated especially to nourish dry and mature skins.

Price:      R 70.00 (40 ml)

                R140.00 (125 ml)

                R245.00 (250 ml)







Ingredients:  Certified organic Coconut, Castor  and Olive oil, wild-harvested Shea Butter and beeswax,  honey, Buchu, Lavender, Rose Geranium, Lemongrass and Neroli essential oils.

Uses:  A more liquid version of the Shea Butter and Honey Cream, this hair lotion is just as popular. It is a given for natural hair, creating a soft gentle shine, but equally good for treated hair in need of nourishment and protection. We can barely stay in stock of this one.

Price:      R 65.00 (50 ml)

                R115.00 (100 ml)

We are proud soap-makers to Victorian Garden, who spent a year with us designing soaps for their natural range.  It was an honour and a pleasure to work with such discerning specialists!

Soap for us is full-on body art. It requires us to consider the properties of various oils and botanicals, their effect on the body, selecting essential oil fragrances to match the mood, and then conceptualizing a design which gives creative expression to all those aspects. Of course executing the design until it looks like our dreams requires sometimes hundreds of hours in the workshop.  We do what we do for the love of it, with the single-minded passion which is the key to great creations.

That is what you will get if you place an order for your range,  for a special event like a wedding or a corporate promotion, because you would like to spoil a loved one, or simply because you want your own personal brand of soap. Feel free to contact us so that we can fulfill your needs! Here are some of the soaps we make. We welcome a challenge which stretches our creativity. There is nothing too complex or difficult for us, as long as it involves 100 % natural or organic soap and skincare products.
