Vanilla Essential Oil Isn't What You Think
This “oil” is actually not an oil at all, but a semi-solid resin that is extracted from vanilla beans with the use of a solvent. While it looks like essential oil, vanilla oleoresin does not completely mix with carrier oils as other essential oils do.
True vanilla absolute has a rich, balsamic vanilla aroma; it is also sweet. It exists as a dark brown, solid/liquid that needs warming up before it can be blended for aromatherapy and perfumery use.
Vanilla as a CO2 Essential Oil CO2 essential oils are closer in “make-up” to distilled essential oils because of the lack of solvent used in the process (as in the case of absolutes).
However, this does not mean they are the same as distilled essential oils. CO2 essential oils are extracted using carbon dioxide under high pressure. CO2 extracted oils are said to produce an aroma closer to that of the plant than that of distilled essential oils.
But because CO2 essential oils are relatively new to the market, little is known/proven about how the therapeutic properties of a CO2 essential oil actually compare to a distilled essential oil. However, CO2 extraction can be used with plants that could not traditionally be steam distilled.
Vanilla CO2 essential oil has a range of vanillin percentage content – the component which gives vanilla its “vanilla” aroma. Vanilla CO2 essential oil dissolves in carrier oils, unlike vanilla absolute. However, the solid waxy substance still requires warming up before it can be blended successfully into aromatherapy and perfumery products.
