Lavender is an aromatic evergreen shrub, with a multitude of stems rising above hairy green leaves. This plant, also called true lavender, fine lavender, wild lavender or English lavender, has deep roots in Provencal tradition. It grows wild in the region’s highlands, particularly in the Alpes de Haute-Provence, on sunny mountain slopes between 600 and 1700 meters. This French region is one of the world’s biggest lavender-producing areas.
Its fragrant, intense, blue-purple flowers bloom in summer. The flowering tops are harvested in July and August, when the summer heat stimulates the rise of the essence into the flower’s secretory glands. The reaped lavender tops are then left to dry one or two days to allow excess moisture to evaporate. This wilting period is essential to ensure high-quality perfume.
The scented water is obtained by natural steam distillation. The flowers are crossed by water-steam. Once it is released from the container, the steam, which is enriched by the essential oil contained by the plants, is condensated in a coil that has been kept in cold. The recovered fluid is composed by essential oil and water : the scented water is the water naturally enriched by traces of essential oils (about 0,1%).
