Original Carshalton Lavender™

Original Carshalton Lavender™

Naturallythinking was born in Carshalton, a town on the London / Surrey border which 100 years ago was the Lavender growing region of the world. In the 19th Century Carshalton, Wallington, Mitcham and Sutton was a sea of Lavender, however with the expansion of London in the inter war years, slowly the Lavender fields start to disappear under the urban sprawl of London, until very little of these fields survived.

At the end of the 1990's a group of enthusiasts organised to replant some of the original Lavender fields with Lavender grown by propagation from the Original Carshalton Lavender, a unique variety which thrives in the chalky North Downs Soil of Carshalton. Since 2002, Naturallythinking has been exclusively involved with Carshalton Lavender creating the Original Carshalton Lavender products from oil distilled on site here in Carshalton. The money from the oil funds the Carshalton Lavender project, which is a community project.

What makes Carshalton Lavender so Special?

A combination of variety, the chalk soil conditions and climate make for a truly remarkable Lavender which is both deep and herbaceous and has wonderful floral top notes. The Esther levels (often a mark of the purity and quality of Lavender) often exceed the most expensive high altitude Lavenders available and makes for a truly remarkable oil., even the French admit Carshalton Lavender is the finest Lavender in the world.

Enjoy the Harvest

Every year, the last weekend of July plays host to our Lavender Harvest Weekend. Here we harvest the Lavender, whilst the public can at the same time come and pick the Lavender. We distill the Lavender onsite and you can see the Lavender being distilled with hourly demonstrations to explain the process. The day is an annual family day, which attracts up to 10,000 visitors over the weekend. There are refreshments, Lavender related products, onsite massage and of course the full range of Original Carshalton Lavender products for sale.
