Lavender Alpine essential oil is wild-crafted, harvested by hand-cutting and distilled on-site. This means the essential oil is produced from fresh material rather than dried. It is not possible to produce Alpine Lavender essential oil in large quantities.
This lavender grows wild in rocky, mountainous terrain above 2100 feet, and benefits from the thin air and sunshine, contributing to its unique aroma.
It is the best quality of all the lavender essential oils and is the most soothing, due to its high linalyl acetate content. It is also high in subtle energy.
