French Lavender Maillette, also known as “Fine Lavender”, is considered one of the highest quality lavenders on the market. For this reason it is a favourite in the aromatherapy, skincare and perfumery industries. Its distinct, soft and noticeably sweeter aroma is attributed to it having a higher linalyl acetate content (said to have antispasmodic and sedative properties) and a lower camphor content than other lavender oils.

This Lavandula angustifolia is grown in France, considered to be the premier growing region, where the plant grows to heights of between 40 and 90 cm, at elevations of 500 metres and higher (whereas lavandin grows at elevations of around 300 metres). This makes this oil more costly as creating large scale plantations at this elevation is more complex.

The properties of this lavender oil are said to include analgesic, anti-inflammatory, antiseptic, antispasmodic, aromatic, carminative, deodorant, insecticide, nervine, sedative and stimulating. Said to help heal topical cuts, burns and bruising, help calm irritated and acne prone skin and relieve feelings of stress and anxiety.

Also, it is truly the most beautiful lavender oil we have smelled!
