Maillette lavender is one of many varieties of the lavender plant. This one grows both in the climate of South Africa, and also in the French Provence region. Our South African supplier only distills 20kg per year of this special essential oil. It has a charming, gentle floral scent, with a spicy, fruity note, so it’s popular in many perfumes today.
Lavender has a long and memorable history. It has been used for thousands of years, from the ancient Egyptian, Phoenician and Arabian civilizations, to the Greek and Roman empires. It was used for perfumes, mummification, and aromatherapy. Later it was used in Europe by the 1600’s as a preventative against cholera and the Black Plague.
Here are 3 all-natural benefits for your home and health of Maillette Lavender essential oil:
- Burns: Use Maillette Lavender oil immediately if you get a burn or sunburn. Apply lavender oil and THEN some aloe vera on top. The combination is extremely effective in healing burns fast! The lavender’s calmative properties go to work fast to desensitize the nerves and relieve the pain, while its healing properties begin repairing your skin and preventing scarring. Then the aloe vera seals the lavender in and moisturizes the skin!
