Vanilla Essential Oil
Diaphanous, dream-like, and delicious, Vanilla is a pure, potent supercritical extract distilled from the velvety inner-orchid-nectar of the Madagascar vanilla bean. This oil is over 200 times more concentrated than a typical vanilla extract used in cooking. Its high potency blesses us with a rich, thick, creamy essential oil that smells divine and charms all the time.

Vanilla Essential Oil is typically found as an "absolute" or solvent-extracted oleoresin, yet our peerless CO2 distillation creates a completely pure and naturally potent product. Our solvent-free Vanilla Essential Oil is perfect for perfumes, love lotions, and pure enough to use in the kitchen. Dilute in virgin coconut oil and add a drop to smoothies, honey, chocolate making, and desserts. The sweet scent inspires a warm sense of nostalgia.
Considered by some to be the closest natural scent to a mother's milk, Vanilla Essential Oil comforts with its cloud nine scented caress.
"The perfumer is heavily indebted to vanilla... not only does it give a sweet and pleasing fragrance, but it is unusually lasting and is, therefore, excellent for "fixing" a fragrance." Jill Jesse, Perfume Album
"For a while he was witched by the wind that yields faint fragrance of vanilla fields, and watched the pendulous humming-bird cling to the rocking flower, like a golden thing." Frederick William Faber
