In recent years, Bulgaria has become the world’s largest lavender oil producer, surpassing France, which was otherwise the leading manufacturer of lavender.
The use of lavender essential oil goes way back in time to more than 2,500 years.

The oil found favor with the Egyptians who dipped garments in lavender oil before using them to wrap mummies.
History of Lavender Essential Oil
There are several records of other cultures using lavender oil to scent perfumes and toiletries, heal wounds, and ward off infections. It was also often used to scent wardrobes and lingerie drawers.
With its sunny climate and chalky quick-drying soil, the Dobruja Valley offer conducive conditions for growing high quality lavender. A visit to our Bulgarian lavender farm in the Dobruja Valley is a delight to the senses, with fields of purple as far as the eye can see and the air filled with that distinctive floral aroma. Our farm has been managed by three generations of farmers. Over the years, we have tested and improved our growing techniques resulting in larger, richer yields.
Growing & Harvesting Lavender
The lavender blossoms possess the highest concentration of ester when they are in full bloom. Ester is the compound that gives this herb its unique aromatic profile. Harvesting lavender blossoms at this time ensures that the oil extracted is of the highest quality.
The ideal harvest time is between July and August, before the colder weather sets in. The harvesting is fully mechanized so it can be completed quickly and transported to the distillery as soon as possible to minimize the transit time. This ensures that the blossoms do not lose any of their aromatic or therapeutic components during transit and the oil extracted has a full aroma that is rich in therapeutic properties.
Lavender essential oil is extracted from the blossoms through the process of steam distillation. We have perfected the technique over the years so the oil extracted is 100% pure and all-natural. No chemicals or preservatives are used at any stage. Every batch is tested before it is passed for marketing to our customers.
Steam distillation of 150 pounds of lavender blossoms yields about 1 pound of pure, concentrated, high-quality oil that contains a wide range of active components including linalool, 1,8-cineole, linalyl acetate, pinene, cineol, camphor and geraniol.
Lavender essential oil is known the world-over for its distinctively sweet floral scent that is calming and soothing. In Bulgaria we grow locally developed varieties of Lavandula angustifolia, also known as True Lavender or English Lavender.
