lavender from Provence
This lavender is guaranteed to come from Provence. The fields are on the border of the Drôme and Haute Provence. The lavender is of the lavender type lavandin. The lavender is organic and is therefore not sprayed. Immediately after picking, the lavender is carefully selected. That means that the twigs and the like are removed and that only the beautiful flowers are left.
This lavandin is the lavender that we know from the postcards with lavender fields blooming in purple. Higher on the mountain flanks, from 600 meters the blue lavender, the lavande vraie, blooms. This lavender species has only one flower per branch. The yield is therefore a lot lower than that of its purple counterpart. The blue lavender is therefore a lot more expensive and the flowers are mainly used for lavender oil.
Working together on quality
Lavender is a natural product and the weather conditions and the composition of the soil largely determine the quality of the lavender flowers. The company from which we purchase the lavender is affiliated with a group of lavender producers who work together and exchange information. Together they ensure that the lavender is of high quality and that there is sufficient yield. Quality means: a beautiful blue color, a good scent and a good oil (after the flowers have been distilled). Be alert that a lot of (cheap) lavender is offered on the market, originating from Eastern bloc countries. This lavender is of a very different quality.
