Lavender is grown in many parts of the world for a variety purposes: as an ornamental plant, as a herb for cuisine, and to extract essential oils for medicinal purposes – to produce remedies for the likes of anxiety, infections, burns, wounds, aches and hair loss. It’s also valued for its wonderful aromas and overall has so many uses.

 

To discover the wide-ranging wonders of lavender, tourists in Azerbaijan can visit the Essenso lavender plantation in the north-western region of Gabala, nestling at the foot of the Caucasus Mountains. The 30-hectare lavender farm lies amid stunning countryside in the village of Chukhur Gabala, also home to the fascinating archaeological ruins of ancient Gabala.

 

Visiting the Essenso farm to admire the purple fields, soak up the wonderful fragrance in the air, learn all about lavender cultivation, and sample a range of medicinal products, from aromatic oils to lavender honey, will fill you with positive energy. The best time to go is when the fields are in full bloom between the end of May and the end of June.

 

In addition, a Lavender Festival is organised here in May-June every year, inspired by similar festivals in France, the USA, Türkiye, Italy and Bulgaria. Festival goers have the chance to learn the ins and outs of lavender, its various species and uses, purchase essential oils and other fragrant, tasty or health-giving products, as well as to enjoy a host of side events such as fashion shows and concerts.
