The lavender blossom

The sweet scent of lavender hangs almost continuously in your nostrils from June to August, when you cycle through the blossoming lavender fields. Because there is a boom in Provence. But what you see and smell here on the endless lavender fields is mostly not lavender, but lavandin, a subspecies of lavender. True lavender is less productive than lavandin. It begins to flower after four years and grows mainly in the mountains. The precious lavender oil is not only used in cosmetics, but also in naturopathy and in the kitchen. In addition, the sweet fragrance is an insect repellent and is therefore very often dried and hung in the wardrobe to keep moths away. But even those who don’t much like the smell of lavender, will be impressed by the sight of the beautiful fields.
