Rivergum Valley Lavender
A Family-owned Farm in Western Australia
We have been in business since 2003 and who would have thought we would have grown so much from our humble beginnings! It’s all about our faithful customers all over Australia, especially in Western Australia, who have supported us at the many markets and shopping centres we have been to. We hope this website will make it easier for you to order online when you do not have the time to visit us at our lovely shop in the different shopping centers we visit.
In 2006, Jan from ‘Sewbizibee‘ joined us, making exclusive hand-sewn gifts. She has many years experience in handcrafts and you will find a selection of gifts we carry in the online store here.

John & Iris Ives
Iris and John moved to the farm in 2003. Our original plans were to open to the public as a tourist attraction. This had to be abandoned after severe frosts damaged the flowers in the early years and we also realized we were too far off the Avon Valley tourist route for visitors.
Undeterred, Iris researched and with the help of a friend who is a chemist, started to experiment blending natural oils and essential oils into creams and balms. These were then sold at local markets and agricultural shows throughout Western Australia. Today we display mainly in the malls at shopping centers. Premium Australian oils are used whenever possible.
The demand for more natural skin care has seen the products very well received. With inquiries from the UK, Canada, and China, a thriving mail order business has been established.
As an alternative skin care, Rivergum Valley Lavender products are popular for their unique variety and quality. The appearance of the packaging is eye catching. Besides being an ideal birthday, anniversary, Mother’s Day and Christmas gift, Rivergum Valley Lavender and Sewbizibee products make an excellent addition to any gift hamper.
