Our farm husbandry of conscientious growing decisions, meticulous plant care, and extraordinary terroir, lend its way to a distinctive beautiful flower. This flower is then “hand-harvested” at peak oil content, early in the day, and “hand-transported” to the awaiting Copper Still, the flowers are then allowed to ‘rest’ a bit, then loaded into the distillation vessel. It is then distilled with pure artesian spring water slowly, at minimal pressure, to allow the steam to “coax” all the elements out of this wonderful flower’s aroma oil.
All of our Lavender Angustifolia varieties are distilled in our Copper Alembic Distiller to ensure the absolute highest quality essential oil. This distillery comes from Portugal, and the Alembic design has been used for centuries and is still a very effective distiller. We strive to preserve this ancient art of Alembic distilling and the essential oil is proof of the centuries-old craft and product that can be created in this fashion. We make every effort to impact the environment in a positive way, including composting our spent Lavender and harvesting by hand without petroleum-powered machinery. We use earth-enhancing fertilizers and continue to look for additional practices that provide the best outcomes for the human and natural environments both now and into the indefinite future for our children and our childrens’ children. We know that decisions made today determine the future of our planet and our children’s future.
