Enrich your life with the magic of doTERRA Madagascar Vanilla

Embrace the feeling of comfort and warmth

The vanilla plant (Vanilla planifolia) is native to Mexico and Central America and is now grown in tropical regions worldwide.
However, the natural pollination of the vanilla plant can only be done by a specific bee found only in Mexico. Outside Mexico, there is less than a 1% chance of the flower being pollinated by itself, so farmers must hand pollinate each flower as it blooms. The vanilla flower usually blooms only one day a year and is fragile and must be pollinated in the morning, during the cooler hours of the day. If not pollinated during this incredibly short period, it wilts, so the fruit does not develop and no vanilla beans can be harvested later.
This makes the vanilla plant a beautiful, labor-intensive plant that is the second most expensive crop in the world after saffron. Many companies therefore make synthetic vanilla flavoring and fragrance to save time and money. Unfortunately, most vanilla-flavored products do not contain real vanilla.

What is the difference between vanilla extract and vanilla absolute?

Vanilla absolute is not the same as the vanilla extract you might have in your baking supplies. Generally, the vanilla extract you bake with is extracts of vanilla beans in alcohol. It contains traces of minerals and is thinner in consistency than absolute.
To make pure Madagascar Vanilla Absolute, the vanilla pods must first undergo a CO2 extraction process in which the beans are ground into small pieces and placed in a pressurized extraction vessel.
In a separator, these chemical compounds are separated, and the CO2 liquid is converted back into a gas, leaving the vanilla extract clean and free of solvent residues.
The final step is the use of a pure and natural alcohol solvent to remove any remaining waxes or other ingredients to create the final product: pure and natural vanilla absolute. This final step also concentrates the natural vanillin, which gives vanilla its incredible aroma.
CO2 extraction is cleaner than chemical extraction, leaves less residue, and is greener and more sustainable.

The qualities of Vanilla

Vanilla has a long history of use for therapeutic purposes, including relaxation and as an aphrodisiac. Vanilla has been used as a flavoring for centuries, but its use goes far beyond food. In ancient times, the Mayans and Aztecs used vanilla to honor their gods. It was also often used in religious ceremonies because of its calming and spiritual properties.
