  1. I’m excited to try this! How would it work in DIY lip balm (mixed with beeswax, shea butter and coconut oil)? Would it blend well enough?

    1. Anna, the Vanilla Oleoresin will only properly blend if diluted with a lotion or cream. If you can find a way to incorporate that into your lip balm, it should work

  2. I’m so glad this is the Spotlight oil because I’ve been wanting to try it! I’m excited to diffuse it with Sweet Orange this fall!

  3. I have been thinking about ordering and lo and behold it is the oil of the week. So I ordered and am looking forward to trying it. I love vanilla scented anything and it helps relax too!
