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.
Low temperatures in March-April have delayed the harvest of the lavender crop till mid-July. Sources suggest that the yield is expected to be good. Currently, lavender prices are at an all-time low. Even though the demand has been stable this could be due to large quantities stockpiled and good production volumes. Organic lavender is in stock, as the market for it has been slow. Most of the lavender oil is being exported. Thus, overproduced oil stock is being utilised.
