Lavender is a very famous herb all over the world. Lavender grows in altitudes up to 2000 meters on rocky barren soil where few other plants can survive. With their blue purple spikes who are rising up in July-August they create a colourful peaceful landscape. Our precious Lavender is growing in Turkey and by steam distillation of 100 kg lavender spikes we receive 1 kg of essential oil.
