History: After a few years of reduced harvests, the price of vanilla essential oil has sky-rocketed, and is now comparable to the precious oils. This of course has caused most vanilla products to now contain synthetic vanillin instead of the real thing.
However, the difference in quality is stunning, and you will grave the complexity and roundness of real vanilla!
