Fresh, herbal, sweet and floral, Lavender is always the first choice for your medicine cabinet. The name Lavender comes from the Latin lavare which means "to wash." Romans added Lavender to their bath water as much for its scent as for its antiseptic quality. It has continued to be an ingredient in popular facial waters to this day. Lavender Maillette is particularly high in linalyl acetate, which gives it a fine and rather sweet aroma. Lavender Maillette is a clone; that means all plants have the same genetic make-up. All Lavender Maillette currently comes from France.
