About Our NZ Lavender Oil

NZLavender’s pure lavender essential oil is 100% pure and natural, making it ideal for use in aromatherapy. We are New Zealand’s largest commercial lavender farm, producing the finest quality lavender essential oil, which we distribute all around the world. Our smooth, balanced and award winning unique lavender essential oil is the perfect choice for aromatherapy; used in sleep support, baby care, stress management and healthy living.

Every summer over 110,000 Lavandula angustifolia plants – the “True lavender” -  turn our Canterbury farm purple with a spectacular show of flowers. These flowers are the source of NZLavender's specialised hypoallergenic, pharmaceutical-quality lavender essential oil - known for its soothing, healing and balancing properties. There are many different types of lavender, but our special variety of “true lavender” has been selected for its unique oil properties. As a result, our NZLavender oil is highly sought after as arguably the world's first hypoallergenic, pure unadulterated lavender oil.

While it may be cheaper to buy other lavender oils from overseas, in particular Bulgaria (where most 'French lavender oil' is produced), our NZLavender oil is a superior quality product with unusually high proportions of beneficial ingredients and characteristically low proportions of undesirable ingredients. These desirable qualities are due to a combination of naturally occurring factors and careful distillation and storage. We are proud to be producing such a high quality, naturally low allergen lavender oil in commercial volumes.
NZLavender essential oil’s unique low allergen and low irritant composition makes it ideal for delicate skin. It has high levels of healing components, making it perfect for aromatherapy. The oil is GE/GM free (non-GMO) and tested each year by independent laboratories.

The NZLavender Production Team

NZLavender isn’t just a business; it is our way of life.  We are the production team – Dr Philip Simms and Owen Dexter – and we are personally involved in the whole process from plant to oil, so can guarantee the purity of our product and our method, every step of the way. 

We have carefully selected a unique, naturally occurring cultivar of Lavandula angustifolia found in New Zealand, and applied precision distillation methods and storage techniques in order to produce our special lavender oil.  We do all the farm work – the planting, the weeding, the harvesting and the distilling - and draw on our extensive agricultural, scientific and pharmaceutical knowledge to ensure NZLavender produces oil to the highest international standards.
