The start of Simiane-la-Rotonde Lavender Farm and Distillery
Young Living’s Simiane-la-Rotonde Lavender Farm and Distillery is nestled in the charming hills of France’s Provence region, an area renowned for its beauty, fragrant lavender fields, and summer-long festivals. Because of its history and breathtaking views, this Young Living lavender farm in France is a popular destination for essential oil lovers, artists, and visitors looking to breathe in the captivating, deep cultural roots of this unique place.
In 1990 Jean-Noël Landel traveled from France, hoping to find buyers for his high-quality Lavender oil at an expo in the United States. Young Living’s late founder, D. Gary Young, also attended the expo, displaying a few single oils, which piqued Jean-Noël’s interest. The two men quickly discovered that they shared a mutual passion for essential oils, particularly Lavender, and Jean-Noël invited Gary to visit him in France, never imagining Gary would really come. Only a month later, Jean-Noël and his wife, Jane, welcomed Gary into their home, where they introduced him to their six-month-old son, Nicolas. Today Nicolas Landel continues his father’s legacy by managing Young Living’s Simiane-la-Rotonde Lavender Farm and Distillery, including overseeing the lavender harvest.
