Imagine the fragrant atmosphere of a relaxing break in the shade of a Provencal farmhouse, surrounded by fields of lavender. The L’Occitane Lavender Candle will give your home a luxurious Provencal atmosphere for long hours. Lavender was one of the first flowers distilled by Olivier Baussan, the founder of L’Occitane. Known in Provence as “blue gold,” this plant is an aromatic tribute to the south of France. It is the fragrant soul of the region, the fruit of respectful labor. L’Occitane uses lavender that is sourced from farmers’ cooperatives in Haute-Provence.
To extend the life of your candle:
- Before lighting, straighten the wick and trim it to 1/4 inch.
- Every time the candle is lit, try to make the wax melt over the whole surface before extinguishing
- Never burn the candle completely – throw it out or repurpose when less than 1/10 inch of wax remains
While exploring his native Provence nearly 25 years ago, Olivier Baussan created L’Occitane by capturing the region’s most subtle fragrances and blending them with natural ingredients. Using the traditional method of extraction, he developed L’Occitane’s very first products based on essential oils extracted from local plants.
From his rustic roots in Provence, Olivier dreamed of discovering new horizons, to travel beyond his native land and experience other cultures. In keeping with this spirit, L’Occitane developed a humanitarian-partnership with African women. In the Burkina Faso village in Africa, the native women harvest Shea nuts and are the co-producers of L’Occitane’s complete Shea Butter Collection. Thus, it is a tale of Provence meets Africa on ethical grounds.
Today, L’Occitane focuses on protecting the fading traditions and vanishing techniques that everyone should be enjoying. L’Occitane breathes new life into these authentic customs by recreating the genuine articles such as its famous “Marseilles Soaps” as well as the revival of its Verbena and Lavender Harvests each year.
