Vanilla has a sweet, warm, honey-like fragrance known for its calming and mood-enhancing properties. It is comforting and relaxing and has a calming effect on the nervous system which may help relieve stress, anxiety, anger, and restlessness. Vanilla has sedative properties that can soothe inflammation and hyperactivity in the respiratory, circulatory, digestive, and nervous systems. As an antioxidant, it can be a wonderful addition to your daily skin and hair care regime. This has already been diluted to 3% in Jojoba oil to make it more affordable.
We particularly enjoy the combination of Lemon and Vanilla, as in our recipe for DIY Vanilla & Lemon Bath Bombs and this homemade face and body scrub.
