Vanilla – vanilla planifolia
The essential oil of vanilla is extracted by the solvent extraction of a substance obtained from fermented vanilla beans. These beans come from vanilla plants, a creeper that grows mainly in Mexico and neighbouring countries. Most of the flavours including vanilla are not derived from proper vanilla. They are synthesised from hydrocarbons.
Vanilla essential oils have a number of uses, including relieving the symptoms of PMS, fighting infection, boosting libido, lowering blood pressure, reducing inflammation, and reducing depression.
