This essential oil is extracted from the flowering tops of Lavandula officinalis. That of Lavandula vera comes from the distillation of the wild plant, its smell is finer but its cost much higher: it is always picked by hand, machines cannot be used on the arid hillsides where it grows between 1000 and 1800 m. and the yield of its distillation is lower than that of cultivated Lavandula officinalis. The cutaneous route remains the preferred method of use. The top quality cultivated Lavandula officinalis EO is that extracted from non-clonal organically grown lavender, known as “population” (European PDO label).
