Essential oils are at the heart of everything we do at L'Occitane. This has been the case ever since 23-year-old Olivier Baussan started distilling the plants of Provence to capture their powerful oils. Our founder began his business with nothing more than a small truck and an alembic – a traditional copper still that he used to steam the precious essence from plants, flowers and herbs. It's time-consuming work but the results are worth it: it takes around 1 ton of Immortelle to create 2 kg of essential oil.
Each plant derived formulation has its own distinctive scent along with various benefits. Complementary oils can be combined to achieve enriching blends that meet the needs of different hair types.
