Because this CO2 extract of the familiar vanilla bean contains over 12% vanillin it is far richer, sweeter, and more aromatic than any other form of vanilla I have experienced. Sensual, warm and aphrodisiac, this CO2 extraction contains no solvent residues (found in the more familiar Vanilla Absolute). Organically produced.
Emotionally, Vanilla Oil is warming and welcoming, an ideal de-stressor. It is said to ease stress, anger, and frustration…giving a feel of comfort, perhaps because it recalls warm childhood memories?
Physically, it is said to induce menstruation. I have friends who use it, diluted in honey, in herbal tea to ease menstrual problems. For this reason I would avoid it in the early stages of pregnancy.
Add a drop or two to your favorite carrier oil for a romantic massage base. A dilution in either oil or alcohol will sweeten and smooth any aromatic perfume blend.
Its comforting sweet aroma softens any blend…wonderful with citrus oils, softens the coniferous oils…add a drop to your holiday scents! it’s great for scenting homemade lip balms…orange and vanilla….lovely!
This exquisite aromatic is VERY intense and requires use in extremely low dilutions for its sweetness to be apparent. Please note that undiluted Vanilla CO2 is very thick. It most likely will not come out of the orifice reducer in the bottle. It may be necessary to remove the orifice reducer and pour or pipette the oil out. We recommend warming in hot water prior to trying to work with it. You might prefer our 10% Dilution in our odorless Fractionated Coconut Oil for ease of use.
BLENDS WITH: Bergamot, Grapefruit, Lemon, Mandarine, Orange, Sandalwood, Tangerine, Vetiver. Wonderful with Rose, with most florals, with any of the sweeter Citrus Oils. Adds a smoothness to any blend.
