I love the holidays. People are happy and share plenty of joy and cheer. I especially love the drinks that come out only during Christmas. Egg Nog, Orange Wassail, Peppermint Cocoa, and my personal favorite Chai Lattes. Mmm. I have been dreaming of a Chai Latte Flavor since probably Halloween. The best thing about this blend is that it doubles as a flavor and fragrance blend! In my spare time, I have tested and fidgeted with ideas and samples. I made so many samples it drove me crazy! The test vials littered my desk, the kitchen, and even my purse. Honestly, I sweated bullets over this thing. However, I persevered and at last, I achieved a successful and desirable result! Yea! I hope you can all test and enjoy this wonderful blend.
To make the Chai Latte Blend, I used:
6 parts Black Pepper Essential Oil
6 parts Coriander Essential Oil
10 parts Cinnamon Leaf Essential Oil
6 parts Clove Leaf Essential Oil
6 parts Chinese Star Anise Essential Oil
25 parts Natural Vanilla Oil
I converted the parts into grams and made a batch of this Chai Latte blend. Tomorrow I will cover making a Chai Latte Lip Balm. Yum! (P.S. For all of you Chai Latte lovers, now you can have great lips, all the flavor, and best of all, no calories! What a score!)
I was personally surprised at what ended up in this blend. Anise? In Chai?! No way! Black pepper. Can’t be. Too savory. Coriander? Ok, I guess. Before this project, I thought of Chai containing Cinnamon, Clove, Nutmeg, and Ginger. Alas, we do not have nutmeg or ginger essential oils. (Not yet anyway.) So I had to be creative. I was surprised at how similar this blend is to the local coffee shop’s Chai Lattes. I even went around town to test Chai Lattes, then my blend. Wow! It was like I had concentrated what was in my cup! For all of the spice and chai lovers, this is a must-try!
I would love to hear what you want to see this Chai Latte Blend made into. Lip gloss, creams, let me know, and we will feature it!
