How to Make Lavender Oil by Steam Distillation?

At the end of January, we start to harvest our lavender plant from our lavender fields. Every year is exciting. Each lavender bud is filled near to its bursting point with essential oil. At this time of the year you will be surrounded by sweet lavender aroma.

We stuff the lavender into the HUGE lavender bucket to start the steam distillation. Then we stomp on it to compact the lavender. 

WARNING: It is not easy. Very tiring.

Then we heaved ( With our fingers on remotes, of course) the lavender into the insulated steam cooker.

This is our 100% pure lavender essential oil. We have received NZLGA Supreme Oil Silver Awards 2017. Based on this pure oil, we made a wide range of lavender products for you to enjoy.

Some studies found that lavender aroma helps to increase in deep sleep and reduce awakenings in both men and women. We have designed natural sleep aids based on our lavender essential oils.
