Warburgia salutaris is a tropical forest tree which extends southwards as far as KwaZulu-Natal¸ eastern and northern Gauteng and across Swaziland. It also occurs in Malawi. Its growth habitat is forests and kloofs. It is an evergreen¸ slender tree that grows from 5 to 10 m tall. The dark green¸ glossy leaves are paler green below. The midrib is slightly off-centre with the tapering apex and base. The leaves have a bitter¸ burning¸ aromatic taste. It has white to greenish flowers of up to 7 mm in diameter. These flowers develop into round¸ oval berries¸ narrowed towards the base¸ are dark green¸ turning purple when ripe. The stem is covered by a rich brown bark that is also bitter and peppery.

The specific epithet salutaris in Latin means healthful. The English common name pepper-bark is from the inner bark that is pungent. This tree is the most valuable of the natural African antimicrobials¸ and the bark and leaves have been used for centuries.

Traditional uses include the treatment of the following:

  • Yeast (Candida albicans)¸ fungal¸ bacterial and protozoal infections
  • Escherichia coli¸ the bacteria responsible for causing cystitis or bladder infections
  • Common colds - as an expectorant or smoked
  • Clear the sinuses - as a snuff dried and ground
