Lavender was one of the first flowers used by our founder, Olivier Baussan. Its unique fragrance has become an aromatic tribute to Provence, earning the nickname “blue gold” from locals. To honour our roots, we use lavender sourced from farmers cooperatives in Provence.
Our lavender essential oil comes directly from farmers’ cooperatives in Haute-Provence and is always P.D.O. certified. P.D.O. stands for Protected Designation of Origin. That preserves the purity of the ingredients, a commitment we cherish at L’OCCITANE.
Our lavender producer Jérôme Boenle specializes in the production of PDO lavender, which is grown from seeds instead of cuttings to ensure the truest quality of lavender. Once fully bloomed, Jérôme harvests the flowers before it enters the distillery process.
So delicate yet so powerful for the mind, body and soul. The aromas of this magical plant help with sleep troubles, anxiety, stress and relaxation. Add a drop of lavender essential oil to your favorite bath product to create a moment of shower zen!
