Our vanilla is sweet and smooth with very faint nutty undertones. It can be worn directly on the skin as a natural perfume. We blend our vanilla with coconut for superior absorption into the skin.
Because it is impossible to extract the aromatic compounds from vanilla beans using purely physical methods like distillation or mechanical pressing, there is technically no such thing as “vanilla essential oil.” The beans are too delicate to survive the heat required for steam distillation, and you can press vanilla beans till the cows come home… you won’t get any oil out of them.
Our vanilla is extracted via a brand new method which uses carbon dioxide, resulting in a process which is as close to steam distillation as possible without any of the heat.
If this is too much chemistry for you, don’t worry. The short version is, we use the purest vanilla available, even if it is not actually an “essential oil.”
The scent of vanilla is said to be soothing, and according to some, may even help you lose weight. One study found that overweight people who were given vanilla patches to sniff were more effectively able to reduce their sugar cravings.*
