Why is lavender beneficial to me?
The healing properties of lavender have been thoroughly documented and researched for hundreds of years. It has been demonstrated to have a sedative effect on human nervous system via fragrance and ingestion, that is, it can assist our responses to negative stress and anxiety but not affect our essential brain functions. It is known to uplift and revive the spirits of someone feeling emotionally depleted and depressed. It has excellent antiseptic action for the topical treatment of external wounds, burns, sprains and abrasions as well as being an excellent insect repellent and will reduce the itching of insect bites. It is also the first choice in the treatment of insomnia and can help in the management of migraines and headaches.
When is the lavender in flower?
Our commercial lavender varieties flower late spring and early summer (November/December) before we have to harvest for buds and essential oil distillation.
When can I visit the farm?
During the peak lavender flowering period in December, we will take bookings for our farm tour, a 1.5-hour fully escorted small group visit with time for exclusive photography sessions amongst the rows of purple lavender.
Visits are by appointment only with no more than 15 people in the one session which gives you exclusive access to uncrowded lavender paddocks, one on one information from the farmers, a unique learning experience located close to Sydney, in the calm and beauty of our mountain landscape.
