English term or phrase: botanicals
the text is about plants and plant concentrates - would it be sufficient to translate botanicals simply "Pflanzen"? Or does anybody have a better suggestion?

pflanzliche Wirkstoffe
Explanation:
Depending on the context, it might not be the whole plants they're talking about but rather ingredients derived from the plants. So I would suggest "Pflanzliche Wirkstoffe" if that fits the context.
