We love lavender!
Our aim is to provide the highest quality lavender products and also exceptional customer service.
Lavender is such a versatile plant. Its oil can be used to relax and calm; as pain relief from insect bites, burns, cuts and abrasions; to help relieve stress, allergies and rashes; induce sleep; help relieve dry skin and dandruff and, deter unwanted pests. It is also great in the tumble dryer to help freshen your clothes and can be added to your favourite recipe, yes that’s right…you can cook with it… but make sure you use the correct variety.
Really, you could say it’s the ‘swiss army knife’ of the plant world!
The healthy properties of the lavender plant are renowned to be beneficial to your body, mind and spirit. Take a look at our products to see what you can try….you’ll become a lavender lover too!
Lavender is the healthy alternative!
Mt Baimbridge Lavender – Established 1997 in Western Victoria – Sorry, we are not open to the public.
We have been growing lavender since 1997. Culinary lavender is our focus and also the hardest one to grow, harvest and prune! It’s a low growing plant so that means back breaking work. We also grow lavender for craft projects and uses and to help us keep up supply, we have other growers who grow on our behalf under similar climate and growing conditions in our region. So much lavender – no wonder we’re all relaxed and happy in our household!
We harvest the lavender in summer with a sickle. It’s a labour intensive exercise but the end product is much better. Whilst we grow to organic principles we aren’t actually certified. We use no chemicals just lots of hand weeding and mulching.
The process: we keep watch on the maturing lavender flowers and weather from late November, when the weather and the flowers are right we harvest them. We cut bunches of lavender with a sickle and hang them up to dry in an airy shed. We sieve the dried lavender at least 6 times for culinary and up to 3 times for the craft dried flowers.
It’s a lot of hard work but we love it.
