Extraction Method

Vanilla belongs to the orchid family; it is a climbing plant that clings to trees by means of small hook-like appendages. Its greenish-white flowers produce a fruit that takes 8 or 9 months to ripen. The cloves are collected just before they ripen and then undergo a 34-month maturation process. As their aroma mellows, vanilla crystals begin to appear.

Uses

History

Medicinal properties The smell of vanilla stimulates ambition and boosts physical and intellectual activity. It strengthens the willpower and helps to fight lethargy.
