Tihany Lavender History and Benefits
Posted by Stephanie Whittier LMT, CST | CEO and Founder, T Spheres Inc.
Hungary is a beautiful country with breathtaking lavender fields and farms. Here at T Spheres, our favorite lavender farm is located in Tihany, Hungary. We source our essential oils prior to each batch with this amazing Hungarian lavender.
The lavender season begins in the middle of June and peaks at the end of June or early July. The farming of lavender plants marks the end of the lavender season each year.
The gorgeous Tihany lavender fields are located on the Tihany-peninsula. These fields came to be in the 1920s when Gyula Bittera, a well-known herbalist, brought lavender plants over from France and started the first lavender plantation in Tihany. With there being very few pests, chemicals tend to not be used on the lavender, allowing it to be harvested in its purest form.
The lavender fields have become a tourist attraction for Tihany. There is even a lavender festival that takes place every year! During its peak time there are guided tours, performances, and even demonstrations on how lavender is harvested. The strong smell of all the lavender attracts lots of butterflies during this time, giving the area the nickname “butterfly valley”.
