Harvest Guide

Spring: The harvesting season commences in spring (September, October and November) with the picking of flowers such as sweet violets, daisy and heartsease. This is followed as the season warms with calendula, roses, chamomile, black elder berry flower, yarrow, red clover and lavender. Over the same period leaves are picked from peppermint, birch, lemon balm, sweet violet, nettle and ivy.

Summer, Autumn, Winter: Some herbs require us to pick the whole top part of the plant when it is in full flower as these herbs are full of medicinal qualities. These are selfheal, echinacea, rosemary, marjoram, plantain, chickweed, thyme and sage. This will happen over the growing season early summer to early spring depending on the species.

Winter: Roots are harvested in the winter when the plants have died back and all the nutrients from the past season are stored in the root system. Marshmallow, comfrey, liquorice, dandelion, echinacea and burdock are harvested each winter.

Can I see the Jurlique skin care products being made on the tour?

Unfortunately No. Our Jurlique products are manufactured and filled at our Mt Barker production facility which is not part of the tour. The tour is of the Jurlique Farm where we grow ingredients for our skin care products.  As part of the Jurlique Farm tour, photos will be shown of the Mt Barker facility and your guide will talk you through the manufacturing process.
