Product Information (not covered elsewhere on this site)

What exactly do you sell?
We sell Sceletium tortuosum that has been dried and milled into a fine powder.
What part of the Sceletium plant is used?
The whole plant.
I noticed that the original users prepared Sceletium by crushing and fermenting the plant in animal skins or alternatively baking it - both these processes serving to degrade the levels of oxalates. Does your Sceletium (if it hasn't been fermented) been baked or prepared in some other way?
Traditionally Sceletium was crushed and fermented for about a week. At this point we are not totally sure as to the reason for this. It might be related to decreasing levels of oxalic acid but at this point this is just a theory and has not been tested. Currently our Sceletium is in it's raw form and fermented. We are intending to investigate this further and based on this we will make a decision as to which to offer.

Payment to

How can I pay?

You can pay by the following methods:

  • Credit card
  • Wire Transfer (Telegraphic Transfer)
  • Cash

Please take a look at our payment options page for comprehensive details on how to make these payments.

Are my credit card details secure?
Yes. Our online order form in on an SSL (Secure Socket Layer) server. All information transmitted to us is encrypted. For example: On MS Internet Explorer you will see a yellow padlock appear on the bottom right of your browser.
Can I pay by postal order, IMO, draft etc.?
No. We do not accept postal orders, bank drafts, International Money Orders or checks of any kind. Sorry.
What will appear on my credit card statement?
You will see the word AfricanBotanicals as the description on your credit card statement.
Why is the amount on my credit card statement different from the sale price?
Slight (mostly minimal) variations can occur, because we are doing transactions across different currencies. This is due to small fluctuations of the exchange rate between the time the order is placed and processed. If you find that the amount has shifted and you are unhappy about it, please let us know, and we will immediately refund you the difference.
What policy do you have with cash orders?
We do accept cash orders. We do and can not, however, take responsibility for cash that has disappeared in the mail. If you do send cash, please hide it very well in the envelope and seal the envelope thoroughly against tampering.
Why do I have to order €200.00 worth of products if I want to pay by wire transfer?
Wire transfers are not our preferred way of accepting funds. This is because of the incredibly high bank charges charged for accepting such a payment. On small orders, the amount of the wire transfer banking fee is in excess of the profit on that order and we actually make a loss. For obvious reasons, we can't have that!
