How we Make
our Lavender Essential Oils
We make our oil the old-fashioned way in small batches:
no highly-mechanised farming here.
Our lavender is grown on land adjacent to Loch Leven in Kinross-shire. No pesticides, insecticides, or fertilisers come into contact with the plants.
We hand-cut our blooms to avoid damage caused by alternative harvesting techniques. It also allows us to protect our bees.
The blooms are then taken directly into our workshop 100 metres from the fields where they are steamed.
Did You Know?
Our 100% copper alembic still was hand-built in Portugal and allows us to produce an exceptional quality of oils.
4. Oil Extraction
The pressure in the Copper Still causes the blooms to burst and release the oil.
This Oil-Water pressurised mixture then travels through a series of copper pipes to cool and liquefy.
The Lavender Essential Oil is separated and bottled ready for you to enjoy!
What Else do we Use our Oil for?
Our pure lavender oils are used both in lcosmetics grade manufacturing and for individual holistic practices.
We work to satisfy the needs of your project on a case-by-case basis.
