Botanical Name: Vanilla Planifolia

Main Constituents:
Vanillin: 1.47%

Plant Part: Fruit

Origin: India

Processing Method: Solvent Extraction

Description / Color / Consistency: A dark brown liquid which can be viscous.

Aromatic Summary / Note / Strength of Aroma: A top note with a medium aroma, Vanilla has a sweet, rich scent.

Blends With: Bergamot, Grapefruit, Lemon, Mandarin, Orange, Sandalwood, and Vetiver.

Product Abstract: Native to Central America and Mexico, Vanilla is a perennial climbing vine that can grow up to 25 meters (82 feet) tall. When cultivated its deep trumpet-shaped flowers must be hand-pollinated; in nature, hummingbirds do the work. The green capsules or fruit are picked, and the immature vanilla pod or bean is fermented and dried to turn it into a fragrant brown vanilla bean. Our oleoresin is the superior bourbon variety; that it is 10 fold relates to its concentration. One of the most popular flavours in the world, it is used in cuisine, cosmetics and perfumery. However, the constituent vanillin makes it difficult to use in soapmaking and candles. Because of reduced availability due to regional conflicts, the price of Vanilla has risen to the point of most absolutes. Nonetheless, the true oleoresin is recognized as being well worth the price.

Note: Vanilla 10 Fold is immiscible in water and oil; soluble in ethanol only, it will leave a sediment. This product contains vanillin, an organic aldehyde which will affect the color in soaps and body-care products. Not suitable for candle use. Avoid very high concentrations in skin-care products. It is recommended that this oil be stored in dark amber, blue or green glass bottles as it has been found to dissolve aluminum bottles.

Cautions: Dilute before use; for external use only. May cause skin irritation in some individuals; a skin test is recommended prior to use. Contact with eyes should be avoided.

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.

Powerful scent!! a drop or two goes a looooong way. Wasn't familiar with oleoresin when I first purchased this - because it was in the essential oil section - I assumed it would behave like other essential oils in lotions and balms - but that is not the case. However once I did some research and figured out how to use it - it's wonderful.

Delightful vanilla fragrance. Deep and sweet. Is immiscible in oil and water both (doesn't mix), but I inquired and it can be used in diffusers and nebulizers. I have been using it in my nebulizing diffuser in blends with other EO's and it works perfectly - isn't clogging and I can smell it is being diffused. Highly recommend. Snag it while the price is good! (Note it is a 10-fold concentration, so a little goes a long way!)

This is a delicious true vanilla scent - not caramelly at all. Mine doesn't have any alcohol scent. Very thick and dark, one drop turned my 100mL of body wash quite brown. I am not sure if it will dilute well with other EO;s in my nebulizer as it is stated not to mix with oil. So I am not sure what to do with it. But it is absolutely delightful!

I absolutely love this scent. I use it in lip balms. It requires a little more work to get it mixed properly but once it is, it smells luscious! Good enough to eat.

This Eo is in my personal stash - I don't make much with this for anyone else, because I really like my vanilla.... However, I used this in a face lotion I've been making for myself - and I personally love it... SO I might have to break down and buy more to share the wealth - because certain oils I hoard to myself and keep in my collection... This one I usually only use in lotions and such, where you only need a few drops.

My only complaint is that anyone new to EO's might not understand what an oleoresin is - and therefore this might be a confusing place to put this product on your website. However, if you know what you are able to use this product for it really packs a punch, and is as good a quality 10 fold oil as you will smell anywhere. Super sweet smelling, great in mists, and while this does separate and do gross things in a candle-lit diffuser with a carrier oil, this can be added to a nebulizer and smells wonderful!

What a lovely scent this essential oil has. I am a relative newbie to this whole soap and lotion making scene, and I've been on a mission to find the best scents I can to use in my new products. Vanilla has been a particularly difficult E.O. to find. It's either not strong enough, not "vanilla" enough, too woody or bitter. I wanted a sweet vanilla; one that reminded me of warm cookies baking. This is it! If there is one caveat it's that I could not make it blend in my lotion bars without leaving dots of dark colour. It may be my recipe but I'll keep trying because this scent is worth the effort.

Rich, dark, fabulously fragrant and definitely addictive. I used it to make a "Creme de Menthe" scent, ( Vanilla 2 : Peppermint 1) which I sniff at every time I go past! None of the products with this scent will make it to the Christmas tree!

It smells really nice, almost a bit cool rather than warm, like something I'd expect to be fake because it's so sweet. Great scent. Dark brown (like cola or coffee) liquid; unfortunately this doesn't work for most of the stuff I make--solid perfumes, soaps, etc... I will have to try some vanilla absolute oil (which can be found in the "absolute" section of this site).

I was having a hard time finding a pure vanilla oil that wasn't just vanilla extract from the grocery store. I was looking for a vanilla scent that I could add to bath salts, air fresheners, etc. When I received my order from New Directions with the Vanilla 10 fold, I couldn't wait to try it out. I mixed it with the lavender for an air spray and it is absolutely perfect!!! I barely had to use any at all for a very good scent! Thank you so much!!

I just tried this in CP soap and my soap seized. I added it to half my batch and the half with the vanilla became solid and grainy. A few reviewer mentioned using this in CP soap. Has anyone else had this problem?

This is a wonderful scent almost choclatey out of the bottle and sweet and calming when diluted or mixed with other EO's. I have blended this with lavender, vetiver and tea tree EOs and put in my soap. It gives a rich scent, you don't have to use a lot of it to get a nice scent.

This EO smells incredible--just like true vanilla extract, not the fake vanilla-inspired fragrance and flavour oils. Keep in mind, though, that it's water soluble, not oil soluble, as per the MSDS. Good for lotions and soaps, but it's a pity I won't be able to use it in balms and body butters.

It took me some time to figure out how to use this product. It is deceptively strong in scent. At first I thought I needed a lot of it in my soaps for it to make an impact, but I've since learned that I need much less than I thought. The scent of Vanilla is popular with my customers, though not so much with myself. For value and quality, this is a great product.

This smells wonderful, it has the true vanilla scent I am looking for. It does not appear to be oil soluable, which disappoints me (would not incorporate into the oils of my lip balm batch), however, I look forward to using it in my water based creams and soap making.

WOW! The strongest smelling EO in my entire order! I wonder what Vanilla 20 Fold would smell like? This is the truest scent of Vanilla I have ever come across - it is not over sickly sweet and also carries a depth that I can't quite put my finger on... but it is absolutely lovely! Since you will not need too much of this EO to scent your products with, which makes the price even more of a bargain!
