When a Citrus is not a Citrus: exploring Agathosma betulina (Buchu) from the Rutaceae family

Sanien has been involved with Holistic Health for the past 25 years and is a qualified Phytotherapy Practitioner, has a Diploma in Nutritional Medicine and is one of the few registered practitioners and trainers of Bach Flower Remedies in South Africa. She is registered with the Allied Health Professions Council of South Africa and is a part time Lecturer in the Department of Complementary Medicine at the University of Johannesburg.
She also works in Private Practice as a Phytotherapy Practitioner and Therapeutic Aromatherapist in Cape Town, South Africa and says “Since childhood I have been fascinated by plants. My first introduction to essential oils in 1995 directed my life on a trajectory that I am still in awe of!”.
Sanien believes that people should be empowered to take responsibility for their own health. Her approach is to look at each person individually and with sensitivity to their specific needs, thus offering patients an integrative approach to health and wellness. Addressing a person’s uniqueness is an area Sanien is strongly passionate about. Just as a plant has many aspects to it, so does a human and it is a privilege to use plants in different and holistic ways.
Through scientific research, she supports her knowledge and interest in traditional and sustainable plant uses and is enthusiastic about the healing potential of medicinal plants.
