Vanilla extract/oil is widely used in both commercial and domestic baking, perfume manufacturing and aromatherapy, but many people don’t realise the array of health benefits that come from using vanilla oil, even though it is not technically an essential oil. Internally, pure vanilla oil fights inflammation, works as an antidepressant and contains high levels of antioxidants.
Uses: It’s been proven to fight infections and diseases caused by oxidation and inflammation. Vanilla oil also promotes skin and hair health, relieves muscle pain and cramps, and balances hormones naturally. For thousands of years, it’s been used by men and women who struggle with loss of libido, anxiety and high blood pressure.
Place a few drops in a diffuser for inhalation, in food & drinks, in the bath or with a carrier oil to create a delightful massage oil. Mixes well with many other essential oils.
Ingredients: 100% Pure Edible Vanilla Oil (Vanilla plantifolia)
I use it as a perfume and add desserts to my coffee. If you add cold-pressed coconut oil for massage, you smell like raffaello cake.
