Aromatic Profile: Very rich, warm, sweet, somewhat woody/animalic-like aroma, with soft notes of spice and tobacco and a very deep, sweet, balsamic body note.
Appearance: Yellow, somewhat opaque, slightly viscous liquid; may have some sediment that will melt with gentle warming. May require special use instructions to blend.
Use: Aromatherapy, Natural Perfumery, Incense. For the pure and undiluted version of this oil, please see our Vanilla CO2 - Organic (12% vanillin content).
Blending Suggestions: Add drop by drop to your blends until the desired effect is achieved. We suggest using smaller amounts in your blends to start with; Vanilla tends to ‘bloom’ (increase in aroma) in formulas and perfumes as they age, with the potential to become predominant.
