Mendip Lavender - jenny turner self portrait.JPG

We (Jenny & Jon Turner) purchased Mendip Lavender in November 2010, which was at the time being run as a hobby business. We are based just outside Shepton Mallet and grow three varieties of lavender - Gross, Maillette and No9. The field is situated at the highest point in the Mendips, is free draining and the soil has had very little attention which is well suited to growing lavender.  This helps to provide a high quality oil. The lavender flowers are harvestedthen distilled to produce essential oil. We blend the oil into soaps, hand creams, moisturisers, shampoos, conditioners, liquid soap, & body wash. We also make furniture polish & candles. The oil is also sold separately.
