Lavender Distillation

Lavender being distilled at Sherwood Lavender Farm

We distil our lavender and lavandin to make essential oils using a copper still.

Our 2017 Essential Oil Distillation Workshop is on July 23. Tickets will be available shortly. 

We host an annual distillation workshop to wrap up our u-pick season, where you can learn about the process of distillation from world renowned distillation experts first hand. You'll even harvest lavender, help pack the still, and get to sample the lavender hydrosol!

View the photos from our the 2012 workshop below. We had an absolutely wonderful day harvesting and distilling true lavender - Lavandula angustifolia. Thanks to American College of Healthcare Sciences President Dorene Petersen and Essential Oil Company President Robert Seidel for teaching the workshop and sharing their worldwide expertise in distillation.
