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.
Ultra International B.V. offers the highest grade of Bulgarian lavender oil which boasts a lavandulyl acetate content on average around 4% (industry average is 2%). 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.
The crop season received unforeseen rainfall. This led to inferior quality of lavender being produced in various regions. Inflation, along with expensive fuel and electricity, is expected to drive production costs up in 2022. While good quality lavender is rare, the market is steady and progressing at a decent pace. Conventional lavender is being sold at Euro 47/kg, and organic lavender oil is priced at Euro 69/kg.
