Excellent!I was afraid that the vanilla scent would be too subtle (based on other reviews); luckily, it's definitely noticeable! The scent is soothing and natural, like warm vanilla extract. Composition is smooth, due to the high amount of jojoba oil. It's more like a massage/perfume oil, not necessarily an essential oil.
I cannot recommend enough! This is one of the few vanilla oil's to be hexane free according to it's website. The smell of vanilla is so feminine and strong you can wear as a perfume. My sister is going to buy one now after she's smelled it on me! Amazing quality for the price! No need for a carrier. And for those wondering, it is an extract, not an absolute, so it is not distilled using hexane!
I bought this to use in a calming essential oil blend. I have found it to be a good quality blend. It has the wonderful scent of vanilla without the exorbitant price tag of the unblended vanilla essential oil! The blend I made works as a natural stress-relief. I used a 10ml roller bottle, and filled it with 5ml vanilla, 20 drops cardamom , 5 drops cinnamon bark, and 5 drops nutmeg essential oils. I then filled the rest of the bottle with a carrier oil (I used apricot oil). it smells kind of like chai, and is very soothing to the nerves. I highly recommend this product!
Real vanilla is very expensive, so for those saying that this doesn’t smell strong enough or that it’s diluted in a carrier oil- an ounce of real, undiluted Vanilla Absolute or Vanilla CO2 costs hundreds of dollars. Getting a vanilla oil like this, in a carrier oil, is the affordable option. It smells subtly of real vanilla bean. Beautiful, unobtrusive scent, unlike so many “vanilla” perfumes that smell artificial, and/or that add so many other notes, which usually end up ruining vanilla for me. The scent, vanilla CO2, which smells like the inside of a vanilla bean pod, won’t be as long lasting or project like a synthetic perfume, but I like that it stays close to the skin, and you can take the bottle with you and reapply. I wouldn’t use this in a diffuser since it contains a carrier oil. But as a natural perfume, it’s lovely.
I am the biggest Vanilla lover and it is hard to come by a perfect vanilla oil. This one is great as far as smell, it seems high quality, but it just doesn't last so long on the skin. I mix with sandalwood but since the sandalwood is more dominant I don't smell too much vanilla in there. Wish there was a way to make the vanilla stronger on the skin.
Good product. It has a very mild scent in my opinion but it’s good nonetheless. I use it with my lotion and I haven’t had any skin reactions like when I used other essential oils. It feels moisturizing by itself too because of the jojoba oil. The size is also bigger than I expected. Overall good product.
I have been looking for a VERY long time to find a viable Vanilla Extract for my soy candles and balms. I didn’t know what to expect since this CO2 resolve is diluted with a carrier oil. The scent is PHENOMENAL and it blends well with other oils and it binds to the wax! It was a thick golden color when it arrived.. I couldn’t be more thrilled to have found this stuff. It’s amazing and the most inexpensive that I have found! I’m definitely ordering again!
It blends well with other oils to soften it like lavender. I make Lip Balms. The vanilla is a bit weak when using it by itself. It takes a lot to make it through the wax and Shea butter. Would probably do good in an infuser or something though. When my Vanilla lip balm set the smell was good, it just took a lot. I feel the price is a bit high especially since it's mixed with jojoba oil. An absolute vanilla might work better for some things.... I hope they make one. 😁
