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.
Farmers are constantly giving up on lavender fields as they are unable to cover the expenses. Demand for the oil is low, which has impacted the price. Though with production volumes expected to go down next year, the price could rise. Currently, after a good crop season, the supply is sufficient in the market.
