Vanilla Absolute / Vanilla Oleoresin
Vanilla Absolute (Vanilla planifolia) from Madagascar is produced from the fruit / bean by solvent extraction.
Our Vanilla Oleoresin has an absolutely amazing aroma. To me, the smell is oddly both relaxing and invigorating and quite a bit more intense than the vanilla extract found in grocery stores. It is VERY, VERY thick so before trying to access the oil which can be almost paste like in the bottle, you MAY need to warm the bottle in a bath of warm water. But, DO NOT microwave.
A concentrated extract of vanilla obtained from the fruit of vanilla. Vanilla Planifolia, in glycerin.
Country Of Origin Vanilla Beans of Madagascan origin. Country of Manufacture Extracted in USA.
Approx. 97.5% Glycerin. Approx. 2.5% Vanilla planifolia.
A mixture of ethanol (grain alcohol) and water is used to extract the vanilla from the macerated beans. Then the alcohol and water are evaporated leaving only pure vanilla paste.

Vanilla Absolute is invaluable in natural perfumery. This vanilla oil smooths & warms floral blends, and softens the notes of conifers. The fragrance of Vanilla has universal appeal as is a calming and soothing influence on the emotions. The Aroma of Vanilla invites sensuality, relaxes inhibitions, and eases feelings of anger and frustration.
Like all of our Artisan Aromatics 100% pure essential oils, enfleurage oils, absolutes and blends, this oil has been carefully selected for its therapeutic quality. Then, to ensure maximum freshness and potency, it is bottled by hand in USA only after orders are received.
Vanilla Absolute Aromatic Profile
Very rich, warm, with a semi-bitter undertone. Adds a warm Vanilla note in natural perfumery, and is an excellent fixative.
Vanilla Absolute Appearance
Dark brown fluid with a thick molasses-like consistency that may require special use of a pipette to extract from bottle. So, bottle sizes are restricted to those without a dropper top and with a phenolic cone top – 5ml and larger.
Vanilla Absolute Uses
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. Personally, I love a simple blend of Vanilla Absolute and Sandalwood with just a touch of Neroli (orange blossom).
Vanilla Oleoresin is soluble in alcohol and soluble but cloudy when dissolved in carrier oils.
AGAIN: Vanilla Oleoresin is VERY, VERY thick so before trying to access the oil which can be almost paste like in the bottle, you MAY need to warm the bottle in a bath of warm water. But, DO NOT microwave.
We also offer quite a few other absolutes, many of which is also often used in natural perfumery:
