We harvest 30 to 50 kg per hectare of these prized flowers at the optimum time in their life-cycle, and in the most suitable climate to maximise potency. It takes 150 pounds of flowers to produce just one pound of oil. Once collected the flowers are steam distilled to extract the Lavandula angustifola oil.
Since ancient times, Lavender (Lavandula angustifola) has been one of the most popular and widely used scents, with its name derived from the Latin lavare, to wash. The essential oils from this plant are known to have a soothing and calming effect, and is often used to relieve many ailments. Applied topically to insect bites can relieve irritation.
