LAVENDER – NATURE'S MASTERPIECE
Lavandula angustifolia belongs to the mint family, and its captivating fragrance is a blend of mint, rosemary and rich floral notes. Its name comes from the word “lavare”, which means “to wash”. It grows to a height of 30-70 cm in the form of a bush, and during July it acquires an intense and recognizable purple color.
Its pleasant appearance and smell are only a small part of its charms, as its advantages are numerous, and we made an effort to use each and every one of them.

HOW IS ABP ESSENTIAL OIL MADE?
Lavender is grown and usually harvested from the fields by hand. The flowers are tied in bundles and laid out to dry for several weeks. When the flowers are sufficiently dried, it is time for steam distillation. During the distillation process, there is no contamination with acetone or hexane used in other extraction methods.
During distillation, the lavender buds are placed over boiling water, and as the boiling water gently steams the lavender, the high pressure and heat the oil out of the flowers. The steam carries the mixture of steam and oil to the condenser where the essence is cooled and re-liquefied. The steam turns into hydrosol, aromatic water, better known as “floral water”, and the precious drops of lavender oil separate naturally.
