  • Cape May Essential Oil (Coleonema Album), also known as the Wild Buchu or Confetti Bush, is native to the coastlines of South Africa. It gets its name from local fishermen who gave it its Afrikaans name ‘aasbossie’ (‘bait bush’), because they'd rub their hands with the leaves to get rid of the strong smell of red bait. Cape May Essential Oil is extracted through the steam distillation of the plant’s leaves and stems.

Directions for use

Add 3 drops of Cape May Essential Oil to a warm bath.

To use Cape May in an Aromatherapy massage, add 4-6 drops of Cape May Essential Oil to 50 ml carrier oil of choice.

To repel insects such as mosquitoes, rub a few drops on your bedding or clothes.

Caution: Do not use essential oils while pregnant or breastfeeding. Unless you're a qualified Aromatherapist, avoid use on babies and children.
