Latin Name: Lavandula angustifolia
Part of Plant: Flowering tops
Country of Origin: Bulgaria
Method of Production: Steam Distillation
Bulgaria is now the largest producer of lavender oil in the world and most all of the French lavender now being sold incorporates some blending with Bulgarian in order to meet demand. Bulgarian lavender can be quite variable in quality depending on the regions its grown. Our Bulgarian lavender is chosen from amongst the best producers with the best odor profile. Bulgarian lavender is the most affordable of all the true lavender oils because of its massive production but is somewhat under stress in 2017 with short supply not being able to meet demand so we expect prices to continue to rise until the next harvest in July.
