About Blue Shed Aroma Distillery
Welcome to Blue Shed Aroma Distillery, a micro distillery established in 2019 to provide 100% pure essential oils completely hand crafted from native flora, some of which are indigenous to the Upper Blue Mountains Region of NSW.
Blue Shed Aroma Distillery is a micro distillery based just outside of Lithgow and was born out of the necessity to create and celebrate the aromas of Australia, by providing our customers essential oils which have been carefully hand harvested and distilled from triple filtered rain water.
Our history of distilling tracks back to Eastern European and Mediterranean regions, where our ancestors of ancient distillers have been creating essential oils over last century. The soft art of distilling has been passed down through the generations to be now created in Australia just the same as our ancestors did centuries before.
The Upper Blue Mountains region stretches far beyond the famous Three Sisters in Katoomba, the Hydro-Majestic in Meadlow Bath and many other landmarks. The Upper Blue Mountains captures areas like, Lithgow, Oberon and the Megalong Valley just to name a few.
Our flora is hand-harvested from the Upper Blue Mountains region as one-off products that are not available anywhere else in the world as each of the following species are specific to the region.
- Tea Tree – Leptospermum Petersonni – Wild Hand Harvested in the Newnes Plateau
- Douglas Fir – Pseudotsuga Menziesii – Wild Hand Harvested in the Oberon Region
- Peppermint Eucalyptus – Eucalyptus Radiata – Arborist Feld in the Lithgow region
- Grosso Lavender – Hand Harvested on our micro plantation in South Bowenfels
Each of the aforementioned floras are control hand harvested in the wild, except for our Grosso variety of Lavender which we grow on our micro plantation that has been specifically selected for the micro- climate of the Upper Blue Mountains which sits 950 metres above sea level.
We thank you for choosing Blue Shed Aroma Distillery as your personal distiller and supporting this ancient artisan trade. Our “Bush to Bottle” model is your reassurance and confidence that the essential oils you experience are 100% pure, Australian Grown & Made.
