Wild Rosemary (English), Kapokbos, Wilde Roosmaryn (Afrikaans).

This small multi-branched shrub has clusters of small hairy silver leaves and dense white flowers and fluffy white seed tufts, hence the ‘snow’ (‘kapok’ – Afrikaans) name. It grows mainly in the Namaqualand, Western and Eastern Cape.

It has traditionally been used as a diuretic to treat oedema and stomach ailments by the Khoi and early Cape settlers. It is believed to have sedative qualities, act as a relaxant and a mood enhancer.
