MARKET INFO of Lavender Oil 40/42 Bulgarian

Latest Market Info: Sep, 2023

Bulgaria is in the beginning stages of its processing season for lavender, and oil production is currently underway at Berjé Trakia. In 2023, the lavender market underwent major changes to its supply structure and total acreage within producing regions such as Bulgaria. Weak demand in certain sectors of the consumer market led to a sharp reduction in the acreage allocated to lavender in Bulgaria, which will result in a significant reduction of essential oils production this year. However, thanks to our close partnerships with local growing communities, Berjé remains well-positioned in the lavender market. We are firmly committed to supporting lavender farmers and will continue to purchase their long-term production.

Description of Lavender Oil 40/42 Bulgarian

Lavender has played an integral role in the economy of Bulgaria since the mid-19th century. The flower finds particularly high cultivation within the Bulgarian village of Starosel, which has functioned as an important farming region since the days of Thracian settlers and the Odrysian Kingdom. Lavender Oil Bulgarian is harvested and distilled during the warm summer months, during which the plant's blossoms have their highest concentrations of essential oils. This practice imparts the oil with a remarkably fragrant odor, exhibiting a pleasant blend of floral, herbal, and sweet notes. Bulgarian Lavender Oil also retains a unique hay-like character upon drydown, which adds further complexity to its aromatic profile. In fragrance, Lavender Oil Bulgarian is often used for high-end soaps and perfumes, blended alongside materials such as vanilla, rosemary, and honey.
