The distillery can be found on the Caussols plateau at more than 1000 meters of altitude. Florihana is a family owned distillery that produces a wide range of organic aromatherapy products such as essential oils, hydrosols ( hydrolats ), vegetables oils and natural/organic cosmetics. Florihana was established in an area naturally rich in biodiversity close to Grasse where flowers and wild plants thrive. Every year, wild plants are harvested by hand and with respect for nature. Florihana pays particular attention to the flowers and plants chosen to make high quality organic products. With over 20 years’ experience in the distillation of aromatic and medicinal plants, the Florihana distillery is committed to strict quality control. The numerous certified labels used by Florihana guarantee its unique know-how.
The essential oils and hydrolats from Florihana are made from an innovative distillation process at low temperature. This innovative technique allows the distillation to be performed at lower temperatures in order to preserve the characteristics of molecules produced by plants and obtain a very pure essential oil. The Hydrolats, also called floral water, which are made from the distillation water, also present an exceptional level of quality. Florihana is committed to the preservation of biodiversity and of traditional ways of harvesting wild plants. The wild lavender is harvested by hand every summer in Caussols on the mountains surrounding the distillery at 1450 meters of altitude (5600 feet altitude). For the sourcing of other plants that do not grow on the surrounding area Florihana makes a very strict selection based on analysis and organic certified labels such as: AB, JAS, ECOCERT, USDA, COSMOS ORGANIC.
