Tried to visit twice during our short stay in Kaikoura. Gate shut and locked. No sign. No update to the website. Nobody was answering the phone. Disappointed!

It's a lovely place to add on in Kaikoura. Good to take photos, have a cup of tea. I love their essential oils. It's the purest and best lavender essential oil I ever used.

The lady owner was very helpful with me buying the products that would be best to use for my needs. A lovely selection of lavender based products. Just a short drive out of Kaikoura with lovely views looking back over sea.
