Lavender was one of the first flowers used by our founder, Olivier Baussan. Its unique fragrance has become an aromatic tribute to Provence, earning the nickname “blue gold” from locals.
Lavender has been part of the L’Occitane DNA for decades. We've been harnessing its benefits, using only fine lavender, Lavandula angustifolia, that produces the very best essential oil. This lavender oil is protected by the PDO label – a guarantee of quality and traceability.
We use lavender for its relaxing properties and exquisite scent in our body care products, which includes our much-loved Foaming Bath and Eau de Cologne. As part of a complex of different essential oils, lavender is also used as a key ingredient in some of our Aromachologie products.
Philippe Soguel, Distiller and owner of La Distillerie « Bleu Provence » in Nyons tells us about the ancestral know-how of the lavender distillation.
