Balkan Lavender – Distilling & Extraction
Distilling of our Balkan Lavender crops begins the same time as harvesting which is in the middle of the summer season here in Bulgaria. Starting in July and through out the rest of summer up until the end of August.
Our distillery operates accordingly to timely schedules with our harvesting operation. By ensuring we recieve harvest at the disterlly once the cauldrons are empty and ready to be filled with freshly harvested Balkan Lavender crop, this ensures we only produce fresh Bulgarian Lavender essential oils.
We use the steam method to extract this magical oil, not only is Bulgarian Lavender essential oil produced but also a bi-product is also produced in this process known as Lavender Hydrosol or Lavender Floral Water. This is a reaction formed when the steam cools, it forms to water and the oil then parts it self by rising above the water and dripping down from an outlet which is higher than the water level, giving you our 100% Pure & Natural Bulgarian Lavender Essential Oil we produce.
