Description

Our lavender essential oil has a fresh, sweet, and natural smell. While it is a very floral scent, French high altitude Lavender isn’t cloying like some floral extracts. High altitudes are preferable for lavender due to higher ester content. Distillation is also improved at high altitudes, due to lower distillation temperatures, which produces a higher quality oil.

Species: Lavandula angustifolia Mill.
Country of origin: France
