      Love the quality and customer service

      I have been purchasing Tahitian Vanilla whole Beans from slofood group for years now. I love Tahitian Vanilla beans more than the other ones because of its extra sweetness. I collect the grind form inside and cover them with jojoba oil and let sit for a long time until the oil turns brown. You can use that oil to make all sorts of skincare products including perfume roller and lip balms. I collect the skin of the beans in another container and add ethyl alcohol to cover them. When the solution become brown you can separate it by straining and use that tincture for baking or you can evaporate the alcohol and be left with the absolute vanilla bean extract. Thank you Slofood group for your good quality and sustainable vanilla bean products and excellent customer service.
