New Zealand Lavender - Lavandula angustifolia

Owen and Philip had a dream; to produce the purest and natural lavender oil in the world. Over many years they have grown and nurtured their lavender plants to get them to the peak of health and production. Their unique variety of Lavandula angustifolia has been bred using traditional plant breeding techniques and has not been genetically modified. They have never used any herbicides or insecticides on their plants. The lavender field is cultivated and hand-weeded to prevent contamination from other plants. New Zealand’s unique climate and unpolluted air is the perfect growing environment for lavender. They are proud to have a picture of their lavender farm on their packaging. Their farming methods ensure that the flowers are harvested and distilled into pure essential oil within one hour, this is followed by careful controlled storage to maintain quality.
