The hills are alive with the smell of Lavender
What appears to be a grand entrance to a Castle down below is actually the home of Jasmin Organics Skincare in Long Road, Tamborine Mountain. Open 7 days from 9am to 5pm, Jasmin Organics is the purest organic skincare facility in Australia. With many ingredients being grown on the property, their products are 100% chemical free with a minimum of 95% content being certified organic ingredients. Being certified, Jasmin Organics adhere to strict Australian and American organic standards and government audits. Jasmin was also the first company in the World to be awarded The Greenest Formulations Prize at the inaugural Sustainable Beauty Awards in Paris.

Founder Lihua Song has a deep passion for environmental change and with this in mind had the vision to create a range of skincare for women that combined both science and nature. The range includes a Cleansing Collection, Facial Care, Rejuvenation, Scrubs, Face Masks, Eye Gel, Hand and Nail Cream, Body Lotion, Anti-Ageing Serum, Suncare, Lipstick and more recently the Koala Baby Range which is totally vegetable so if baby happens to eat the skincare, it is completely safe.
If you are looking for that special gift with Christmas in mind, Jasmin Organics have gift boxes both large and small for sale. A comprehensive range of pure essential oils are also available for purchase from as little as $15. Jasmin Organics are also working with clients who have skin problems to produce products to relieve conditions such as eczema and dermatitis. An example is the Baby Barrier Cream which is in the Koala Baby range and is priced at $29 a bottle and has provided customers a great relief for cracked skin making the hands regain a smooth feeling again.

Eco-tours of the property including the farm, factory and essential oil distillation are provided each day so visitors can learn all about the delicate production process and the health benefits of the organic skincare range. In the near future Jasmin Organics hopes to open a café at the entrance with a large deck overlooking the magnificent property panoramas.
Pamper yourself from the extensive range of organic skincare products
Acres of rose gardens, fruit orchards, lavender bushes and other park like gardens surround the property with the aroma an added delight. I felt like Maria von Trapp as I wandered around the beautiful gardens and amongst rows and rows of vibrant lavender bushes which certainly gave a feeling of the mountain being alive at the sight before you. All water is recycled from the manufacturing plant to the gardens through a transpiration system of pipes. When the weather becomes warmer, the water from the pipes evaporates up through the ground to nourish the plants.
Jasmin Organics also offers a free loyalty programme giving the member a 10% discount off purchases, a gift for their birthday, newsletters on new and current products and information from their website on skin problems. Products can be purchased online; however Mt Tamborine is only an hour from Brisbane and a visit to Jasmin Organics will definitely change the way you view skincare and how you treat your skin. I can definitely vouch for the Night Cream as its smooth texture feels great as you hardly know you have applied a night cream at all.
