This wonderful vanilla oil has a soft, creamy, warm vanilla scent with slight floral like undertones. For those looking for a traditional vanilla scent for their body care products that smells of warmth and comfort, this one is a perfect choice! Extracted through enfleurage, a technique of extracting aromatic oils that goes back thousands of years. It works on the simple principle that fats dissolve essential oils and thereby absorb their aromas. The vanilla bean is soaked in purified fats to absorb the aromatic oils and then soaked in alcohol. The aromatic oils migrate to the alcohol, which is then separated from the fat, and then the alcohol is evaporated leaving only the aromatic oil.
