My latest perfume is inspired by these traditional remedies, and is a re-interpretation. It contains a handmade infusion of dried red bush and honeybush leaves from South Africa, as well as green tea leaves. To this I then added some refreshing citrus and tea notes for a more pleasant olfactory re-interpretation of the traditional bush tea. No bitter taste or aroma of boiled leaves here!
For the packaging, I used one of the lively and colourful illustrations for the botanical children’s book that I have been working on: Honeybush Grove, The Fragrant Garden.
Bush Tea Perfume comes as a perfume oil and is currently available locally at Andromeda Botanic Gardens in Bathsheba, St. Joseph, and in my Etsy store.
