About Our NZ Lavender Oil
Every summer over 110,000 Lavandula angustifolia ‘Avice Hill’ plants turn our Canterbury farm purple with a spectacular show of flowers. These flowers are the source of NZLavender's specialised pharmaceutical-quality lavender essential oil - known for its soothing, healing, and balancing properties. There are many different types of lavender, but our special cultivar of ‘True Lavender’ – Lavandula angustifolia ‘Avice Hill’ has been selected for its unique oil properties. As a result, our NZLavender oil is highly sought, 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), 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 make 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
Philip and Owen had a dream of producing the purest & the most natural lavender oil in the world. Over many years they have grown and nurtured their lavender plants to get them to the peak of health and production. Their unique cultivar of Lavandula angustifolia ‘Avice Hill’ has been bred using traditional plant breeding techniques and has not obtained genetically modified. The lavender field is cultivated and hand-weeded to prevent contamination from other plants. New Zealand’s unique climate and unpolluted air is the perfect growing environment for lavender. The great farming methods ensure that the flowers are harvested and distilled into pure essential oil within one hour, which is followed by carefully controlled storage to maintain quality.
(Current lavender farm owner)
After 13 years of hard-working, Philip and Owen have fulfilled their dreams. They have produced award-winning worldwide sold top. They created quality lavender essential oil. In December 2019, they passed their beloved lavender farm to Dr. John Yi Jiang and Ching Wang.
Dr. John Yi Jiang and Ching Wang are both qualified Chinese medicine professionals within nearly 40 years of clinical experience.
One day in 2016, Dr. John Yi Jiang found the NZ lavender oil is hugely helpful for his mouth pain and ulcer, relief, and healing the pain, which has bothered him for almost 40 years. Then later discovered more benefits for other health problems.
After compared and tried different species of lavender oils, Dr. John liked the NZLavender oil, the best for its fragrance, taste also healing power. And he becomes passionate about the lavender products produced by Philip and Owen. Eventually, he bought the lavender farm from them in December 2019.
Dr. John Yi Jiang has devoted the most of his spare time on the farm and supervised by Philip and Owen.
