We Create Aromatherapy Products

We Design Natural Skincare & Body Products

  • Our Concept

    Lavender Backyard Garden’s concept is simple. It is all about being natural. Our lavender product range uses high quality ingredients and are scented by essential oils and we also grow our own herbs. We avoid using any fragrance, additives or harsh preservatives.

  • Our Ingredients

    Our natural skincare and body products combine botanical, minerals and essential nutrients that keep your skin healthy and glowing. High quality ingredients are the single most important factor in making a product premium. The main ingredients we use are sweet almond oil, jojoba oil, argan oil and avocado oil.

  • Our Scents

    Essential oils are natural and derived from plants, flowers and herbs. Our skincare and body ranges are all based by our very own lavender essential oil and blended with other premium sourced essential oils. While you are using our products, you can not only nourish the skin from our skincare formula but also receive the benefits of therapeutic properties of essential oils.
