Product Overview

Invaluable in natural perfumery, Vanilla smooths rough edges, warms floral blends, and softens coniferous notes. Our certified organic Vanilla CO2 Total Extract has a 12% vanillin content and is very rich, warm, sweet, and has a somewhat woody/animalic-like aroma, with soft notes of spice and tobacco and a very deep, sweet, balsamic body note. It is sweeter and smoother than our Vanilla Absolute and has a 12% vanillin content.

The fragrance of vanilla is one of universal appeal – the familiar aroma invites sensuality and confidence, conveys comfort, and softens the ambiance.[1],[2] Try blending it with your favorite essential oils, absolutes and CO2 extracts. To add a green note to vanilla, use Violet Leaf; adding traces of Celery or Caraway CO2 makes it sophisticated and intimate.[3]

Vanilla, a flowering tropical plant of the orchid family, is a very costly and labor-intensive crop. It takes approximately 4-5 years after planting for Vanilla to set its first blossoms and it takes 600 hand-pollinated blossoms to produce only 1 kilo of cured Vanilla pods. These are picked by hand while still green and are sold to special processing plants where they are sorted, blanched, steamed, and sun-dried. They are then re-sorted, dried in the shade, and fermented while being continually evaluated for aroma and individually inspected for quality. No wonder true Vanilla is such a precious commodity!

We recommend diluting this product to 5-10% before blending it with your favorite essential oils, absolutes and CO2 extracts; Vanilla is well-known for its tendency to ‘bloom’ when added to compositions – its aroma increases over time and may overwhelm the other aromas it is blended with, so less is better to begin with. For a pre-blended product that is easy to use, please see our Vanilla CO2, organic – 10% or Vanilla CO2 – 30% diluted in Fractionated Coconut Oil – Organic.

A true, rich, leather-y vanilla

Rating

Worth every cent. The negative review found here is such an anomaly I found myself thinking, dang, you must have had a cold. Then I noticed this same exact negative reviewer wrote a number of one star reviews using the same exact wording and then thought, oh, this is a competitor trying to knock ratings down. No matter either way. I've purchased vanilla from Eden a number of times ( as well as sandalwood, frankincense, benzoin, balsam of peru, and on and on ) and have never once been anything but blown away by the quality.

Better than I thought...

Rating

Neat it smells a little green for lack of a better term. Once it's blended (sandalwood and balsam of peru) it definitely mellows out and only a subtle greeness is detected with good vanilla too.

Lackluster

It barely has a smell. For as much as I paid, I really expected a lot more than I got. I won't be back.

Sweet Bliss

Rating

Wow! This vanilla is just WOW! I have been tincturing Tahitian/Bourbon Vanilla Beans for years trying to get it this syrupy and delicious. This Vanilla C02 (pure, not pre-diluted in carrier oil) is remarkable stuff. Please try to keep this in stock, EB! I know it's a precious luxury to have but please, PLEASE keep this so I can have more of it! It blends well with everything- fruits, flowers, woods-you name it! So, so happy! The price is worth it. I feel like a goddess wearing it and I am so, so grateful to possess this oil after waiting so long to have it!

Fixatives and Their Function in Natural Perfumery

At Eden Botanicals, we receive many inquiries about fixatives, so we decided to dedicate an article on the topic.

Natural Perfumery Basics

One of the most common ways to formulate a personal fragrance is by composing a balance of aromatic oils using three different categories based on oil evaporation (volatility) rates: Top, Middle and Base Notes.

Organic Rules and the Effect on Shipping Times

Recently, the rules around organic certification were enhanced to prevent fraudulent activity along the supply chain. This is a good thing, though lately you may have noticed...
