Vanilla Oil has a sweet, smooth and vanilla-like aroma. It can be found in hair care and skin care formulations. The 10-fold is a relative indicator of vanilla concentration – the higher the ‘fold’, the higher the vanilla concentration.

Vanilla Oil is deep brown in colour with a strong aroma. A resinoid is extracted from the ‘cured’ vanilla bean by solvent extraction.

Caution: Not to be taken internally.


  1. I have been really pleased with all the essential oils bought from N Essentials except the Vanilla Oil. It smelt great in the glass jar but then zero scent in my cold process soap despite using a decent strength. Very disappointing considering this oil is more expensive than a lot of the other essential oils 🙁

    • As per the product listing, this vanilla oleoresin is a 10-fold oil. The amount of fold represents the amount of concentration of vanillin in the oil – the higher the fold, the higher the concentration. There exists a 20-fold and 30-fold vanilla oleoresin for which we unfortunately do not stock. In general though, a folded vanilla oleoresin isn’t very strong in cold-processed soap. Instead, for CP soap, use vanilla absolute or Peru Balsam which has a vanilla-like scent.

  2. Excellent fragrance, perfect for soap making or body lotions, I did find it separated out of candle wax and lip balms so may not be ideal for those.

    I regularly dye my hair with henna at home which leaves my hair smelling not so nice.
    So in my last order I purchased Vanilla Essential oil and rub a few drops few my hair after I wash it.
    To my surprise not only does my hair smell nice and vanillary, it’s also so much softer after each application.
    So I would recommend this product with much enthusiasm.

  5. Excellent quality with a strong vanilla fragrance.
