The rich, beautiful flavor and aroma of vanilla comes from the seeds contained within the beans of the vanilla orchid. Unlike lavender, peppermint, cedarwood, tea tree and so many other aromatic plants that are capable of being steam distilled to produce beautiful essential oils, vanilla beans do not effectively release their precious aromatic molecules when steam distilled (or cold pressed as is the case for citrus rind essential oils).
Vanilla Oleoresin is produced instead of essential oil.
Oleoresin is derived by alcohol extraction of chopped beans, followed by removal of the alcohol by distillation in a vacuum. The oleoresin remaining after alcohol evaporation is a dark brown viscous liquid. It is graded according to its potency determined by its vanillin content, with 30 fold, being the highest, followed by 20fold 10fold 5fold, single fold etc.
Vanilla Oleoresin offers a rich, warm aroma that complements most other essential oils. The vanilla aromatics are especially lovely when blended with essential oils in the citrus, mint, wood, floral and spice families. It's a wonderful addition to soften and round out blends.
By its nature, Vanilla Oleoresin dissolves best in water and alcohol based solutions (i.e. a body spray). Unlike essential oils, Vanilla Oleoresin is lipophobic and does not properly dissolve in carrier oils.
