December Oil of the Month: Chocolate Truffle

As holiday festivities wind down to a close, often so does our intake of all those delicious holiday treats! It’s okay if you’ve used this last month (okay, okay, last couple of months) to take full advantage of the goodies that seem to pop up everywhere. But if you’re ready to take a break (or even if you’re not!), our Oil of the Month selection is going to help satisfy that sweet tooth. Say HELLO to Chocolate Truffle!

chocolate truffle essential oilWhen you step into a gourmet chocolate shop or crack open that decadent box of truffles,  you’re quickly enveloped in the deep, rich, sensual smell of high-quality chocolate. For many of us, it’s a familiar and satisfying aroma we just can’t seem to get enough of.

So, for this wonderful holiday season, we decided to bottle it up for you! Now you can enjoy it as often as you’d like, without dealing with the temptation of being surrounded by such delicious treats.

Background

So how did we bottle up a chocoholic’s dream scent? Using just the two amazing aromas of Vanilla Extract and Cocoa Absolute, the result was nothing less than scrumptious. The name Chocolate Truffle leaves little to the imagination and there is nothing else better to compare to this scent!

You’ll notice that we have not given this blend our KidSafe stamp of approval. This is because Chocolate Truffle features a very aromatic vanilla extract that contains a 25% ethanol content. Due to our strict company guidelines for what qualifies an essential oil or blend to be KidSafe, we have decided Chocolate Truffle does not quite meet the mark. However, the decision is entirely personal if you would like to diffuse this around children.

While some parents may be concerned about the small amount of ethanol being absorbed or put into the air, others are not. Either way is just fine, and as always, don’t hesitate to reach out to our amazing team of aromatherapists if you have any questions (aromather[email protected]).

Benefits

Chocolate Truffle has a fabulous fragrance that you can enjoy with your aromatherapy diffuser, necklace, or personal inhaler. While capturing the perfect scent was the driving force behind this blend, don’t forget about how the way a wonderful smell makes you feel.

If the aroma of chocolate is something you find comforting, emotionally supportive, or it just always seems to put a big smile on your face, Chocolate Truffle is right up your alley!

Blending

Think of the most delicious bite of chocolate you’ve ever had, then think about what other flavors would be divine with it. Oranges? Coffee? Maybe something a little spicy? Blending with Chocolate Truffle can be as adventurous as you want it to be!

To get you started, try this wonderfully smelling ChocoLatte diffuser blend, add 3 drops of Chocolate Truffle, 3 drops of Coffee Essential Oil, and 1-2 drops of Cinnamon Bark to enjoy a rich and spicy latte aroma!

  1. December was my first month joining the club and I was not disappointed! This oil is heaven in a bottle <3 I have fingers, toes, arms and legs crossed it joins the regular line so I can buy more.

  2. Oh my, how could I have misses this until just now? I Love love love chocolate…. did I already mention that I love chocolate? And just thinking of “chocolate truffle” makes my mouth water, and I’m planning to add it to my next order and then diffuse it, perhaps with another one that goes good with it,like orange. Mmmmm… sounds wonderful! 🙂

  3. This sounds so amazing! If this synergy is made up of just 2 other oils, why do you not offer Cocoa Absolute as one of your single oils? Just curious, because I can think of so many things to DIY with Chocolate EO!

  4. I used this to make a whipped body sugar scrub soap, had the appearance of chocolate mousse by adding cocoa and is absolutely decadent.

  5. I’ve been a member of the OOTM club for almost a year now, and this month’s oil did not disappoint. It is simply DIVINE!

  6. Super excited to turn this into some body products but so far I have been able to diffuse it and it’s really lovely! I love chocolate and this is awesome!

  7. Chocolate Truffle. Oh wow, I am hoping that one day you will offer that one for regular sale. I would love to try it, it sounds heavenly.

  8. I would have never thought of chocolate oil! I may have to join the oil of the month club, what a fun new oil to try!

  9. For the holidays, I make a coffee/coconut oil/sugar scrub. I added the Chocolate Truffle to the gift this year and it was loved by all! Thank you for offering this to the members of the Oil of the Month Club, Plant Therapy.

  10. Why on earth would this be perfect for chocolate lovers? Seriously – it I smell chocolate, even cocoa butter, it makes me crave chocolate until I get it. I could never buy this one!!! lol

  11. Got my Zombie Blood and Chocolate Truffle on the same day. Due to the fruits, I decided to mix them. Loved it, but can’t wait to try it with other combinations. I think I’ll do Peppermint next.

  12. I love the wonderful rich aroma of this Chocolate Truffle Oil. I can’t wait to diffuse it with Peppermint & Coffee. It’s going to make awesome lip balm & soap.

  13. OH my goodness I just got mine and opened it. You can taste it with the first inhale, it’s a delicious aroma. Yum Yum Yum… too bad my husband is going to think I was actually baking something. 😉

  14. It was all the hype on SEOR that made me cave and sign up for the OOTM. I’m so glad I did, this Chocolate Truffle is Devine! I made a sugar scrub, using it and Candy Cane. It smells & feels so good!

  15. OMG!!! So wish I had ordered this month! I am definitely signing up for OOTM if this is the kind of oils we can expect!! This sounds amazing!!

  16. I am so glad I started the OOTM! Between this one, and my Coffee (which is on its way) I have a feeling my house is going to smell absolutely amazing!

  17. This is the yummiest OOTM that I’ve received! It’s delicious! I can’t wait to blend it with others and add a great sweet chocolate-y flavor to my other more theraputic oils. Thanks for the sweet treat PT!

  18. This sounds amazing! Any chance Plant Therapy can bring it back for Valentine’s Day? I’m thinking an oily version of the traditional chocolate box and rose bouquet gift…anyone?

  19. This sounds delicious! I would want to diffuse it in my kitchen so it smells like I am baking something yummy… even when I am not. 😉 Now I want to sign up for OOTM!

  20. This is my all time favorite OOTM (so far)!. I had to order 2 just in case PT doesn’t make it a regular product. So far I’ve diffused it with vanilla, with coffee, and with massoia bark (a little coconutty). LOVE IT!

  21. I jumped for joy as soon as I opened the OOTM and saw it was Chocolate Truffle! I LOVE chocolate and this oil’s scent is beyond delectable!

  22. I absolutely MUST make bath bombs with this amazing synergy!!! I “might” have ordered a few more….I’M IN LOVE!!

  23. Are your oil of the month club oils always exclusive or will the eventually be available on the site? I’d love to purchase this oil, sounds amazing!!

    1. Kayla, we’re so glad for your interest in this oil! Sometimes we do bring Oil of the Month selections back if we find customers really loved them 🙂

  24. So many people in the PT community were raving about this on FB PT SEOR, but until I knew what it was, I just wasn’t sure if I wanted to go forward with a OOTM membership, but I think I may have to start with this one! I’m already in love with vanilla (chocolate only makes it better). I can see this being a great DIY self-care project (bath bombs, lotions).

  25. I Love, Love, Love this blend! OMG! I blend it into my self-made skin creams. The scent lasts a long time! I can’t decide if I prefer it alone or with Peppermint! Oh it is so lovely blended with Peppermint. I also love PT’s Peppermint, it is sweet so I blends nicely with this Vanilla/Cocoa blend!

    1. Sometimes we bring back Oil of the Month favorites when customers really love it, so hopefully, this will be one of those goodies!

  26. This has to be one of my all time favorite OOTM. It smells so wonderful. I have made inhalers and sugar scrubs using this. Also used it with Peppermint eo to make chocolate mint lip balm. Another great oil from PT!

  27. Thank you so much for the info on why it’s not kid safe. It’s very useful information. I have recorded it & yes it smells amazing. It’s the first oil my 25 year old daughter has been interested in. She loves chocolate. Can’t wait to see next months surprise.

  28. I had previously skipped this month because I don’t normally like the scent of artificial Chocolate. Does it have that fake Chocolate smell? I know my hubby would love it and may have to call in to order some after the new year!

    1. Tiara, this has to do with Vanilla’s ethanol content. I explain a little more in the article, but it’s really up to the parents to make the choice of diffusing this around young children or not 🙂

  29. Everyone kept talking about this months OOTM and I couldn’t take it, I HAD to order and find out for myself. And I’m soo glad I did!! This blend is AMAZING!!

  30. I absolutely love this oil. I used it in some M&P soaps for holiday gifts. Anybody else have ideas on what to do with this blend?

  31. I absolutely love this months oil. It’s amazing how much it smells just like a truffle. Hopefully it will become part of the regular lineup. Thank you for including the shelf life information in this post.

  32. This smells so beautiful when diffused with peppermint oil — the result is something decadent yet revitalizing at the same time.

  33. I just love this one. I’m going to need to try it with orange. It would be great as a lotion or sugar scrub. Thanks for this blend.

  34. This blend is absolutely delightful! It smells just like a chocolate truffle but without all of the added calories! I used mine in a whipped body butter and solid lotion bar with peppermint for a thin mint scent. So yummy!

  35. This sounds like it smells heavenly, I’d want to blend it with my Sweet Orange! I so appreciate your Kid Safe guidelines, and how you also explain why! Thank you!

  36. I am new to PT. After so many positive reviews of the OOTM from the FB groups (and just the OOTM program in general) I jumped on board and subscribed. Chocolate Truffle definitely has that wonderful chocolate smell as described above (walking into a chocolate shop). I diffused it with coffee and peppermint. When my kids walked into the kitchen, they all commented that it smelled like thin mint cookies. I have only used it to diffuse. Thank you PT.
