Lavandin Super is obtained by the steam distillation from flowering herbs of Lavandula hybrida. Pale yellow in colour imparts Camphoraceous, floral, fresh in odour
The aerial parts of the plant are harvested from early July to late August, when the plant secretes the most essential oil. Once harvested, the aerial portions are chopped with a forage harvester and distilled without any prior drying. This technique is known as “green” (or “green ground” or “green crushed”) distillation. Lavandin and lavender essential-oil yields vary greatly depending on region, altitude, climate, year, and field age.

The lavandins are on a growth path with demand growing over the last few years. Spain has increased its areas of planting to match growing demand. Spring has brought abundant rainfall and this is good news for farmers. The harvest forecasts are also encouraging. The social distancing norms and lockdown of the COVID-19 situation has made working in the fields, and maintenance work a challenge. Prices are going down at the moment.
