VANILLA  Vanilla aromatica plantifolia     Bean pod Absolute (SE)               Madagascar
                             
Miniscule seeds from an elongated pod produce this thick luscious gooey-ness of essential oil. A very yummy and appealing aphrodisiac that smells sweet, yet it is the scent not the flavor that gives it its appeal. Just as in baking, vanilla is added in as a component to enhance flavor. So, also with blending, vanilla adds a spark of delight to a mixture.
Pharmaceutically vanilla is used for its properties to stimulate the appetite. One may say that as  an aphrodisiac and parfum it stimulates passionate desire. As with anything else in the world of authentic aromatherapy there is no substitute for what is real. There is a very small yield of pure essential oil from the bean pod, so the cost is fairly high in most people’s eyes. However when one understands the source it seems a bargain. Yet due to the modern world of synthetic fragrancing vanilla is usually very adultered therefore most scents that contain a so called vanilla scent are derived from synthetic components. Surely one would want what’s real, not fake. Combining sensuality with spirituality is a sincere way to invoke lasting passion.
I realized that in sniffing the seed essential oils the scent indicated if it belonged with cooking, condiments or deserts. Food is a vital life source. Flavor indicates the actions. Basic food is nourishment, assimilation and digestion with sweetness of desire. The scent of vanilla increases the appetite, be it for consumption or eroticism. Our sense of smell is a far greater indicator of natural healing than many realize.
This aphrodisiac with its sensuous fragrance is indeed the real absolute.  Most of the so called Vanilla scents out there are synthetic fragrance oils that give me an immediate headache.
When you see the price you can understand why the industry uses  synthetics :) We will not offer any essential oils containing artificial products or those of inferior quality.  
One may use Benzoin of Tolu Balsam for a similar note that is much less costly if this is out of your price range.
