About French Lavender

L’OCCITANE sources its supplies from cooperatives in Provence and the Bleu Provence distillery, and has established a multi-year partnership with a local supply chain to guarantee minimum prices and volumes. In 2016, L’OCCITANE renewed its contracts for an additional four-year period, helping to maintain the cultivation of fine lavender on the plateau of Haute-Provence.
French lavender thrives in the region's hot, dry climate and is appreciated for its soothing and healing properties. Growing lavender has also became an essential element of the Provençal landscape and economy. Renowned for its beautiful lavender scent and numerous benefits, this plant has been used for therapeutic purposes for centuries.

Lavender is part of our DNA

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.

Lavender Uses

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.
