Lavender

L'OCCITANE uses lavender that is exclusively sourced from farmers' cooperatives on the Plateau de Sault in Haute-Provence. Our Lavender products include luxurious body care and home fragrances emanating scents that capture the soul of Provence to calm and soothe the body and mind. The expertise of Lavender producers from Haute-Provence is now protected on a European level by the Protected Designation of Origin (P.D.O) label, which guarantees the exceptional quality and the traceability of the essential oil.
ABOUT P.D.O. LAVENDER

When traveling through the Provencal region of France rolling fields of lavender are a common sight. Essential oils extracted from the lavender flowers in Haute-Provence are distilled to produce some of our favorite organic L'OCCITANE products. Our lavender bath, body care and home products provide relaxing aromas through natural ingredients.
Since 1981, lavender producers from Haute-Provence have obtained a PDO (Protected Designation of Origin) quality label for their lavender essential oil. This label identifies a very high quality production. L’OCCITANE only uses PDO Lavender essential oil. To obtain the PDO label, essential oil must come up to very strict standards.
