Some pictures from the Lavender distillation..

We essentially only distill wild plants we collect ourselves... with one exception..

Gil and Derek grow organic lavender, the french varieties L. angustifolia and L. spica here in Crete..
They do so with all their heart and soul. Just to see their plantation is a magic sight.. The plants are all cultivated in circles, Gill knows each of them, each individual and cares for them in a very personal and spiritual way.

It is therefor with great pleasure that we do the distillation of the essential oils for them. Just handling the plant material, when they bring it to the distillery, we can feel the love and care that has gone into the caring, planting and harvesting.. when Lavendula angustifolia arrives on the back of their pickup, we open the bags to find, that it only contains blossoms, every leaf and coarser stalks have been removed..

  1. This must have been quite an experience!
    I think the lavenderoil must be of supurb qualtiy and full of energy.
    This makes me curious about on the effect of growth and spiritual influence on plants.
