Rooibos: the wonder-herb

More than 300 years ago, local inhabitants of the Cederberg region first discovered that Rooibos leaves can be brewed as a refreshing drink.

They used axes to harvest the plant and then bruise the leaves with hammers before leaving it to ferment and later dry in the sun. Today the harvesting and processing of this indigenous herb remains much the same – the only difference being the use of more advanced equipment.

Rooibos has the following properties:

  • Anti-allergenic
  • Antioxidant
  • Anti-bacterial
  • Anti-inflammatory
  • Anti-viral
  • Anti-spasmodic
  • Anti-ageing
  • Contains no caffeine
  • Low tannin from pure Rooibos leaves

Annique Health and Beauty has over 21 brands and more than 250 products including daily, treatment and anti-ageing skin care, an extensive health and lifestyle range as well as cosmetics and fragrances.
