Lavender is the New Green

French Lavender….ooh la la! What’s better on a summer day than the lush fragrance of lavender grown in Provence? L’Occitane en Provence just captured my senses with its Organic Lavender Shower Gel and Body Lotion. Long known for its quintessentially French essences, L’Occitane promises to use only the highest quality organic, A.O.C. and natural ingredients sourced through partnerships with local producers all over the Mediterranean region.

The company even guarantees production methods protect the environment. Lavender is grown above 800 meters, only the flower tops are used and steam distillation is used for extracting the essences. Splash some on; it’s sure to evoke images of Monet’s garden every time. Check out other organic options in L’Occitane’s Olive Harvest and Immortelle. Both essentially divine.

L’Occitane cares for its customers, too. You’ll notice small dots on many of the labels – Braille labeling allows the visually-impaired to understand what they’re buying. What’s more, L’Occitane employees created a school designed to introduce blind and visually-impaired children and adolescents to the world of perfume. C’est magnifique!
