Our Story

Embarking on its journey inspired by five years of idyllic living in rural France, Lavender Hills blossomed from the dream of John and Toni Murrell. In 2002, they planted Lavender on a sprawling 20-acre Ontario farmland, igniting their passion for crafting Lavender Essential Oil products by 2003. Their vision was clear – to establish a luxury brand that epitomized excellence through the use of premium natural ingredients.

A decade later, the Lavender Hills product line flourished, encompassing Pillow Sprays, Lotions, Soaps, Candles, Sachets, and Eye Pillows. Throughout this expansion, the unwavering commitment to avoid artificial fragrances, DEAs, Sodium Lauryl Sulphates, Petroleums, and Parabens remained a cornerstone.

In 2015, John and Toni decided to pass the torch of Lavender Hills to Anita and Rick Paju upon their retirement. Dedicated to preserving the essence of the brand, Anita and Rick continued the legacy, offering natural Lavender products that enriched the lives of those appreciating the benefits of Lavender oil.

Although the original farm is no more, the tradition of crafting Lavender Essential Oil products endured. Anita and Rick's commitment to quality ingredients, reflected in their small batches, ensured each product's freshness and excellence.

Tragically, Anita, diagnosed with ovarian cancer in 2016, succumbed to the battle in 2017. Her indomitable spirit and positive outlook were an inspiration to all who crossed her path.
