Lavender essential oil
Our essential oil is made by distilling the buds and flowers from our Pacific Blue (lavandula angustifolia) plants. The lavender is grown on our property and is hand picked by our family and friends each year. It is 100% pure oil, nothing is added. Our essential oil was described by the New Zealand Growers Association (NZLGA) as a warm and mellow oil which will continue to improve with age.
