The Lavender Harvest and Distillation

The Lavender Harvest and Distillation

The Lavender Harvest and Distillation


The Lavender Harvest & Distillation is the culmination of a year’s work here at Wolds way Lavender. We work all year round to produce our 1,005 pure lavender essential oil. We use traditional steam distillation which has been used over the centuries. Lavender oil is one of the most wide ranging of the essential oils and is known to help with sleep and stress. It has anti-septic and anti-inflammatory properties. We use it our range of unique lavender products. We distil most days throughout August but please phone to check before setting off as it is dependent on many factors.

The distillation process takes around 4 hours, during which time the distillery building is filled with the strong aroma of lavender. Unloading the spent lavender is the highlight of the show as the room fills with steam and the aroma is at its strongest.

Feel free to call ahead during the harvest month to check what time we are distilling. A video demonstrating the distillery process is available to view all year round.

Only the essential oil extracted here at Wolds Way Lavender is used within our range of products.

Our 7.25 Narrow Gauge Railway helps bring the lavender in from the fields and is also available for passenger rides when not hard at work!
