It is what it says it is. I just want people to know what an oleoresin is. It means that it contains some of the oils, not that it is only oil from a vanilla bean. This is what happens when you place vanilla beans in a vodka mixture as well - extract.
This vanilla works well with bath and body products like lotions and deodorants, smells great! But not in soaps. It's just not enough and the lye process destroys the scent. I gave it a try anyway with benzoin to enhance the scent and it had a slight vanilla smell, but just barely (and I used a lot). Just FYI

Love this vanilla extract and it hold well better when mixed with the benzoin and myrrh oils. Well worth it as it is really hard to find vanilla absolute and, even so, it would be very costly at that too. I made a meditation oil with clove, cinnamon,vanilla,myrrh,benzoin,cedarwood,etc....So yay, hope they continue to keep supplying this vanilla.

Love the smell but I find I have trouble producing a good bar of soap with it.

Smells wonderful! Looks like it will be a main ingredient in some upcoming soaps!
