Bulgaria is home to the largest growing area in the world for lavender oil, producing each year between 100 MT-130 MT (depending mainly on climatic conditions).
Distilled from the plant flower spikes, lavender oil is one of the world's most traditional essential oils frequently used in fragrances and aromatherapy, despite little evidence proving its therapeutic values.

To achieve this we hand select the plants from certain growing partners in Bulgaria to ensure we are able to offer our clients this premium oil each season.
Harvesting usually begins during the first two weeks of July and the season lasts around 2 weeks.

LATEST MARKET INFORMATION SEPTEMBER 22, 2016
It’s safe to say that although total figures aren’t yet collected (there are no official figures published) it has been a good season for the bulgarian lavender producers. Weather conditions have been kind and those newer plantations blossomed well, producing what will no doubt be a record year.
It was much anticipated with many producers keen to tease the market in recent months with such promises, for which they have not disappointed, but with it may have damaged their own price expectations with supply looking to exceed demand in the immediate term. With varying qualities still posing a challenge it becomes harder to calculate the average prices but realistically we can say that prices for the 2016 season will be around 30% lower than the previous year.
As mentioned, quality is becoming a defining factor with different markets requiring different oil qualities. Somewhat ironically to what we usually see for the aromatherapy clients, they are more inclined to accept the lower quality material than the perfumery markets who prefer the more traditional and established qualities coming from the older plantations. With more ‘new oil’ in the market and a growing demand from the aromatherapy sector we are seeing a shift in focus from the producers and the emergence of two different qualities. One quality is the ‘premium’ grade for the perfumery industry and the other a ‘standard’ quality for the aromatherapy market. The price difference between the two can be as much as 20%.
We estimate in 2014 the crop was around 140 mt, in 2015 200 mt and in 2016 approximately 280 mt and it’s possible these numbers can keep growing!
