Description of Buchu Leaf Oil

Steam distilled from the highly fragrant Barosma Betulina herb, Buchu Oil provides a pungent, bitter, and sulfurous aroma that is best known for its ability to add a sulfuric contrast to citrus and berry profiles. This deep and penetrating odor enhances the “tropical” nuance of other ingredients such as mango, pineapple, passion fruit, making them far more powerful than similar masking agents. The cooling flavor of buchu also compliments fruity blends exceptionally well, making it perfect for enhancing gooseberry or tropical fruit mixtures.
