Vanilla extract Essential Oil Variations
To a purist, Vanilla Five Fold isn’t technically an essential oil,since it obtained by solvent extraction and then the solvent is removed, leaving the pure vanilla oil. But in our eyes it has health benefits and a fabulous scent. Smooth, soft, warm and inviting, this vivacious Mexican oil is a personal favourite.
Said to be an antioxidant, aphrodisiac, anticarcinogenic, febrifuge, antidepressant, sedative, tranquilizing and relaxing substance. The Oil from Vanilla is extracted by solvent extraction of a resinous substance obtained from fermented vanilla beans. These beans come from vanilla plants, a creeper that grows mainly in Mexico. Its main components are Acetic Acid, Capric Acid, Eugenol, Furfural, Isobutyric Acid and Vanillin Hydroxybenzaldehyde.
If like us you have wanted that soft Vanilla scent and found Benzoin a poor substitute, look no further than Five Fold vanilla. A word of caution. If you are offered a price on Vanilla Five fold that looks too good to be true, it almost certainly will be. This is an expensive oil to produce due to the extraction process. We are frequently offered “pure” Vanilla which turn out to be up market synthetic fragrance oils. The problem is that because the fragrance is more common, it is difficult to then spot the real thing when offered a pure oil.
