When thinking about Provence one of the most frequent images is blue, violet fields of lavender. But, what more is there to know behind that? During a one day trip we will visit the Santeurs et Saveurs University in Forcalquier, university and museum specialized on the distillation of aromatic herbs for cosmetic use. We will discover the history of lavender production in Provence as well as distillation techniques.  We will then cross the whole Plateau de Valensole and its beautiful landscapes to have a typical Provençal lunch on a producers farm and visit the fields to discover all about the growing of lavender. Depending on the period of the visits we will be able to see a distillery plant in action
