One of the most well known and popular essential oils used over the years for many purposes. Extracted by steam distillation from the flowers. Origin: France – certified organic and distilled on a single farm in Haute Provence at an altitude of 3,000 feet. The oil from this region is of exceptional quality. Two regulatory systems certify the quality of the oil. These are the Organic Certification (generally Ecocert) and the Appellation d’Origin Protogee (A.O.P.) and they ensure that the cultivated Lavender replicates as much as possible the qualities of the wild plant.
