High Altitude Lavender
High altitude lavender from France is typically grown in the Alpes-de-Haute-Provence region of France. The typical altitude is at least 1600 feet.
The cool climate, unique soil conditions and the relatively low boiling point lead to a distinctly lighter oil with pronounced floral notes. The oil also contains a relatively high ester count.
