Vanilla Infused Jojoba Oil DIY

So you have your Vanilla Oleoresin and it smells amazing. But you’ve probably noticed by now that it doesn’t completely blend in carrier oils. Not to worry, there’s still a way you enjoy the incredible vanilla aroma. Infusion! All you need some Jojoba Oil and your bottle of Vanilla. In an empty 4-oz bottle (or more if you want to make a bigger batch), add about a half an ounce of the oleoresin and the Jojoba oil. The vanilla will settle to the bottom, so make sure to shake it every day. After about two weeks, it’ll be ready to go. Use a pipette to remove the infused Jojoba oil so as to make sure you don’t pick up excess oleoresin. The best part is that the oleoresin will stay in the bottle, ready for your next infusion.

        1. You can use any carrier oil of your choice! We singled out Jojoba here just to put a bit of a spotlight on this amazing carrier oil, but feel free to use your own favorite carrier if you prefer.

  • I’ve wanted to try this for so long! Looks like I’m going to have to go get some jojoba and vanilla beans. Thanks for the recipe and instructions!

  • humm, i’m not sure what the point of the recipe is- can you explain why we are infusing the vanilla into the oil? Why not just mix the Vanilla O. and the oil and use it right away? I’m not understanding the purpose of letting it sit for weeks and then using it. Can you please clarify?

    1. Vanilla Oleoresin doesn’t completely mix in a carrier oil and speckles from the Vanilla will often separate. Because of this, it’s not the best choice for topical use. By infusing the Vanilla in the Jojoba, you can enjoy the aroma and use it topically with without having to worry about the Vanilla not being entirely mixed in your carrier oil.

  • I’ve tried to find and join the SEOR group, but it won’t come up with the link here. I get a message saying “the content you requested cannot be displayed right now.”

  • Love love love making this! It’s so easy and can add to any DIY project. I constantly have one sitting waiting to be used.

  • How long will the oleoresin last? I know oils have a shelf life so how many times/months can we keep reusing it for infusion? 🙂

    1. The shelf life for Vanilla Oleoresin is about 3-4 years. So I think you’ve got quite a few infusions ahead of you!

    1. A bottle that block light would be best. It’s also a good idea to store it in a cool, dark place while you’re infusing.

  • Pipette – aha! I have a bottle that has been infusing for a month or two. I am planning on using for lip balm. Trying to get it out and leave the vanilla in is trickier than I had expected. I will have to try the pipette.
