Bulgaria is the world’s leading exporter of Lavender Oil. Grown at approximately 500m above sea level, alongside the famous Bulgarian Roses in the Rose Valley of Bulgaria, the unique climate and conditions help to produce the best Lavender in the world. Lavender needs lots of sunlight to thrive, but can also withstand temperatures as low as minus 30 degrees celsius. From one decare of land, 300-400kg of Lavender flowers are harvested, from which 3-10kg of Lavender oil is produced. Almost 1kg of Lavender is needed to make just 10ml of pure essential oil. A delicate process ensures that every part of this incredible plant's goodness remains in the essential oil form.
There are so many amazing benefits of pure Lavender Oil. In particular, in the Lavandula Angustifolia grown in Bulgaria, we find the highest levels of linalool and linalyl acetate content. These naturally occurring terpenes are widely known to reduce stress, relieve depression, fight inflammation, and realign the immune system.
