Lavender is one of the most well-known fragrant flowering plants in the world. It's grown in many different climates, maybe in your own garden. So most people assume that Lavender essential oil is easy to souce. But if a company wants to bring you the best chemistry of an effective and complete essential oil, then where it comes from and how it's distilled is very important to get optimal soil, climate and techniques.
