Welcome to the website for CAPE MOUNTAIN OILS - the home of indigenous mountain fynbos essential oils.

"Cape Mountain Oils" is the trading name of R
atel Farming CC.  We produce pure organic fynbos and other essential oils high in the Groot Winterhoek Mountains (the beginning of the Cederberg range) and hence our name;  the corporation name - Ratel Farming - refers to the nearby Ratel River that runs nearby and to the Afrikaans word for the honey badger which occurs on our farm and loves to inspect our honey.   Cape Mountain Oils conducts its farming operation on ROCKHAVEN FARM.   The farm is situated in the mountains above the town of Porterville in the Western Cape of South Africa (2 hours from Cape Town).

The members of Ratel Farming CC are Jaap Moses and Andrew Brown

Cape Mountain Oils
is a producer of ORGANIC ESSENTIAL OILS, OLIVE OIL and RAW HONEY (the latter on a small scale).  We have a range of 14 essential oils, with an emphasis on indigenous fynbos oils (such as Blue Mountain Sage, African Wormwood, Cape Snowbush and African Chamomile) to the more widely known oils (such as Lavender, Rosemary and Tea Tree ).  The essential oils are all steam-stilled on site on the farm.  The olives are milled off-site and the oil is then bottled on the farm.  All our products are farmed strictly organically.

Essential oils, soaps, creams, olive leaf extract, olive oil and honey are all available to guests and visitors on the farm in our shop - Stofelina se Winkel.  Our essential oils are not generally available to the public, as we have contracts for the sale of all our oils for direct supply to buyers.  However, if you are interested in any oils, send us an email and we can see if we can help.
