With a soothing and relaxing aroma, lavender is one of the most diversely used herbs. Lavender oil, thanks to its soothing and antibacterial properties which detox the skin, can be used to treat hair loss, infections, allergies and eczema.
With an indulging, relaxing scent, lavender essential oil is also often used as a pillow spray as it helps to promote sleep and fight insomnia. Lavender essential oil can even help relieve tension, as well as decrease the impact of stress on both mind and body, making it the ideal accompaniment for use in massage and physiotherapy treatments.
Our new L’Occitane Lavender Body soap offers a full routine with relaxing properties. Contains fine lavender flower inclusions & almond shell powder and cleanses & gently exfoliates. Leaves skin soft and smooth.
Many Lavender flowers are used for essential oils. Distillation is carried out just after harvesting. 1 ton of Lavender flowers yields produce 8kg of essential oil.
The first lavender harvest reserved for L'OCCITANE took place in 1977.
Fine lavender grows at an altitude of anything from 600 to 1,700 metres!
Under threat from drought-like conditions and disease-carrying insects, lavender is in decline. Since 2012, L'OCCITANE has been supporting French research institutes in their efforts to find ecological solutions to save lavender. To contribute to the local economy, we source all our lavender exclusively from cooperatives in the south of France. L'OCCITANE have also been trying to reduce waste as much as possible by selling eco-refills onsite to support lavender protection. Lastly, we want to ensure the welfare of our producers, we pride their expertise and craftsmanship.
