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.
Large portions of lavender fields were destroyed due to unfavourable weather conditions. June witnessed constant rainfall and cold weather, which delayed the harvest by two weeks. However, the market is holding steady due to carryover stock from last year. The lower quantities produced in 2023 in comparison to 2022 have not impacted the availability of the product.
