German organic lavender from the Petite Provence in Detmold
At the beginning of September 2015 we started an extraordinary project together with organic farmer Martin Meiwes from Detmold. On two hectares in the southwest slope, 50,000 lavender seedlings from certified organic cultivation were set. The lavender plants thrived magnificently in the “Petit Provence”, as the german television lovingly described it in his report. Already in the following July, the lavender fields were in full bloom and attracted not only innumerable bees with their aromatic, relaxing fragrance, but also numerous people who wanted to experience and enjoy the unique ambience of the blossoming lavender fields, reminiscent of the summer holiday. The first partial harvest for the laboratory analyzes could start as planned. First, it was harvested by hand and the precious oil was recovered in a small distillation plant. The next year, a 2-ton steam distillation unit was installed on the company property to process all plants into high-quality organic lavender oil. Today, the lavender fields in Lippe are known far beyond the region. Here you can learn more about our German lavender from the Petite Provence.
Organic rose oil from Bulgaria
Several years ago, we embarked on the journey to Bulgaria to find organic rose projects with which we would like to grow together. Our organic rose oil comes from two family farms, which use only organic roses from their own cultivation and buy no roses for distillation. This is the only way to reliably ensure the origin and purity of the oil.
