The Lavender

Lavender, hard to estimate accurately the flowering, everything depends on the spring, sunshine ... but so beautiful when it delivers to us its purple tones, fuchsia ... In Diois, fields are small, scattered and reveal themselves to visitors eager  of wild corners.

A few explanations

Lavender is typical of this country because it blooms in lands located between 500 and 1200 meters.

There are two kinds of lavender in a natural state in the Diois, the true lavender (or fine) and the aspic that easily differentiates of the Lavandin that is the mixture of these two species. It has a larger tuft, it is the most cultivated because it is more profitable and grows easily in plain up to 800 meters but is twice less odorous.

Do you know...


that lavender has many virtues?


This is an antivenin, it facilitates the healing of wounds, dried flowers are used as a moth repellent while perfuming the cupboard and a few drops of oil are sufficient in the bath to make it soothing...
