Botanical Name: Vanilla planifolia
Plant Part: Flower
Extraction Method: Solvent Extraction
Description: Vanilla is a perennial herbaceous climbing vine that can grow up to 25 meters (82 feet) high and takes up to 18 months to produce its first flowers. The small yellow-green orchid blooms for only a few hours before wilting unless it is naturally pollinated by insects - a rare occurrence - or hand- pollinated by workers.
Color: Light yellow brown to dark brown liquid
Common Uses: Vanilla Absolute is popular for its sweet and gentle scent, and is widely used in the perfume and cosmetic industries.
Consistency: Thick and viscous, this absolute has been dewaxed and is liquid in warmer weather. If not fluid, it should be placed in a hot water bath in order for the absolute to liquefy.
Strength of Aroma: Medium
Aromatic Scent: Vanilla Absolute is one of the most well known scents. The Absolute oil has a rich, sweet, vanilla odor.
History: The Totonacs of Veracruz, Mexico are credited as its first cultivators of vanilla bean. In the 1400's The Aztecs showed the Spaniards how vanilla could sweeten their chocolate and perfume their cigars, and the long, dark vanilla beans became part of the Spanish empire's rich colonial trade as early as the middle of the sixteenth century.
Cautions: It is important to note that all absolutes are extremely concentrated by nature. They should not be evaluated in this state unless you are accustomed to the undiluted fragrance. For those trying Absolutes for the first time, we strongly recommend they be evaluated in dilution. Otherwise, the complexity of the fragrance - particularly the rare and exotic notes - becomes lost. Not suitable for candles.
Storage: It is recommended that oils packaged in metal containers (for safe shipping) be transferred into dark glass containers to maintain freshness and attain maximum shelf life.
