Origin: a Latin derivative
meaning "Gift of the Earth."
Familiar and nostalgic. Evocative and romantic. Prized since the time of the ancient Aztecs, and often used in perfumes, vanilla is one of the most popular aromas in the world, and one of the most expensive to produce.
A perennial climbing vine that grows up to 75 feet, the Vanilla planifolia plant is in the Orchid family, with yellow-white flowers that produce odorless pods or beans. Plant blooms must be hand pollinated, and it takes three to four years for the vanilla plant to begin producing beans that must be harvested by hand. The beans then go through a time consuming and labor-intensive process to allow them to fully develop their aroma and flavor. Afterward, the beans are ground into small pieces and, to preserve the natural vanilla aroma, pressurized CO2 is used in a two-step extraction process that captures the aromatic constituents from the beans to create the absolute. We combine this absolute with Fractionated Coconut Oil and the result is doTERRA Madagascar Vanilla. Fill your home with comforting magic by adding Madagascar Vanilla to your favorite diffuser blend. Give your morning coffee, tea, smoothie a delightfully smooth flavor lift with just a touch of Madagascar Vanilla. Use as a captivating personal fragrance, or add a few drops to a bath oil or body lotion to enjoy a luxurious moment as you breathe in the exquisite aroma of Madagascar Vanilla.
