Aura Cacia 100% Pure Essential Oil Peru Balsam -- 0.5 fl oz
Quality oil at great price
Peru balsam tends to be pricier than many of the "introductory" essential oils. Aura Cacia's is a really great product at a very good price. It does have a soft, somewhat vanilla-like aroma which is very pleasant and relaxing. I primarily use it for making home fragrances, and it blends well with long-lasting aroma

I for one (as opposed to some on here stating it doesn't smell like vanilla... well guess what! It is not vanilla essential oil and it does not deserve 3 stars for being not vanilla) am obsessed with this oil and in fact would list it in my top 5 of all the Aura Cacia oils. This oil has so many uses and the description on the bottle labels it as empowering but to me it is very relaxing and tranquil. I guess you could call it self-assured. I have been known to put some on my wrist at night when I go to sleep because it is a comforting scent. The best description I can provide while I smell it is the following in order of tone: vanilla (in an amber sense), cinnamon leaf, wood ember, clove, and moss. Where patchouli would be heaviest on the mossy side of things, this is the inverse. There you have it is an amazing earthy oil. In shower gel before bed is amazing and tranquil!

Doesn't Have a Vanilla Like Scent
I've read from a number of sources that this has a vanilla like scent. I was very disappointed that it didn't. It does smell pretty good in its own right and pairs well with other essential oils when making bath products.

Wonderful scent and lots of great uses
Unsurpassed quality and care about the environment. I love this brand for everything they stand for. This oil smells so warm woody and sweet - with vanilla like tones. Its a relaxing oil that I love mixing for skin care blends.
