Premium Lavender Oil production is not something one commonly associates with the country of New Zealand, however Lavender species were among the earliest plants introduced to New Zealand by Europeans due to its rich and fertile landscapes. Not all lavender oils are created equal and our New Zealand Lavender is very special.
Geographical differences create noticeable variations in the properties and scents of Lavender Oils around the world, with soil, aspect, climate, latitude and altitude all playing critical roles. New Zealand's lavender often comes from farms located in areas with rich local volcanic soil at a relatively high altitude and with a cool climate, resulting in a distinctive product with a fresh, sweet, floral, herbaceous aroma that is soothing, refreshing and subtle.
Lavender production from New Zealand is relatively small compared to other major producing countries, so the limited amount of Lavender Oil that does come out of New Zealand is scarce and harder to source.
