Botanical Name: Lavandula augustifolia, variety "Maillette"
Method: Steam distillation of flowers by a small artisan distiller
Notes: This is a modern variety of cloned lavender. The population is genetically identical, unlike the Lavender Fine population.

Observations and Anecdotal Information
Lavender Maillette seems to have a special affinity for healing nerves. It regenerates damaged nerves, and can help restore nerve degeneration from disease.
It is also helpful for supporting tendon and ligament injuries, and connective tissue damage. Conditions such as scleroderma, MS, and myofascial/muscular degenerative diseases can really benefit from regular use of this oil applied topically.
Its very sweet aroma is both relaxing and revitalizing. Often it is enjoyed even by those who normally shy away from lavender. It is a lovely addition to diffusion blends, and appealing to sensitive individuals and children.
