Tasmanian Lavender Oil
Our Tasmanian Lavender Oil is available for purchase from 500 grams.
Possibly the world’s most universally used essential oil, Lavender has a distinct, beautifully floral aroma unlike any other.
Lavender is also perhaps the matriarch of the essential oil industry in Tasmania. Brought to our shores in early 1900s, EOT’s current crops were originally cultivated from true French Lavender sourced from the Maritime Alps in Provence (which, funnily enough, enjoys a similar climate to ours).
With our long summer days and cool breezes blowing off the Southern Ocean at night, Tasmania’s climate and soil conditions are ideal for cultivating Lavender. We have worked closely with the University of Tasmania over many years to establish “Tasmanian Lavender” which is now recognised as its own distinctive sub-species.
We grow our Tasmanian Lavender at several locations around the state, including on site at Brookfield, south of Hobart, and have developed innovative agronomic, harvest and distillation techniques to deliver a consistent, aromatherapy grade oil of the highest quality.
