About: Each year in the remote area of Simiane la Rotande, tucked high up in the Alps of Provence, only 100 liters of this ancient strain of Lavender essential oil is produced. The rare seeds are planted on the land and cultivated bio-dynamically with techniques from times when “organic” was the only kind of farming.
Lavender Reserve has a unique rounded floral bouquet with subtle earth tones and a lingering sweetness. With all the same uses as standard Lavender Angustifolia, it excels in skin care, emotional support, and personalized scents. It is so gentle on the skin that it acts as a carrier oil in blending.
