Essential oils from LorAnn are the highly
concentrated, volatile, aromatic essences of plants. Most are derived by the
steam distillation of fresh herbal materials, or through cold expression. The
essential oils can also flavour chocolate, cakes, cookies, pastries, frosting's
& royal icing. *Please note that our Cinnamon, Clove and Peppermint flavours
are particularly potent. You may wish to reduce the amount used for these
How do LorAnn oils' flavours compare to extracts?
You can use any one of LorAnn’s concentrated
flavourings in place of an extract – but you don’t need to use as much! Unlike
traditional extracts which are mostly alcohol, LorAnn flavourings contain little
or no alcohol. Generally, a LorAnn flavour is three times the strength of most
extracts and will handle the heat in cooking and baking better. The natural
essential oils (such as peppermint, Amaretto, Amaretto Mint, lemon, etc.) and
cinnamon oil are the most potent…so a little bit goes a long way!
Do LorAnn flavourings (candy oils) contain vegetable oil?
No, none of our flavourings contain vegetable oil. The term "candy
oil" has been used for many years to describe a type of flavouring that is
potent enough to be used in hard candy making.
What is a dram?
A dram is a unit of measure that equals 3.7 mls or .125 fluid
ounces. 1-dram is roughly equal to 1 teaspoon. For recipes calling for 1-dram of
flavouring, use entire contents of a 1-dram bottle.
What is the
shelf-life of LorAnn's essential oils and flavourings?
flavouring "oils" and essential oils do not have a vegetable oil base. You need
not worry about spoilage or rancidity of our flavourings and essential oils,
even over a period of years. LorAnn Oils guarantees the flavour strength and
character of all our flavours and essential oils for a minimum of one year. It
should be noted that as flavourings age for extended periods of time (i.e. 1 - 3
years) the flavour strength and or character may experience minor changes.
What precautions should I take when using LorAnn's flavourings
and essential oils?
LorAnn's flavourings and essential oils are
highly concentrated - be sure to wipe up any spills quickly. Prolonged contact
with plastic, counter tops, and other surfaces may cause damage. Plastic
utensils, measuring spoons and bowls should be avoided. If making hard candy,
please note that hard candy making requires the use of very high cooking
temperatures. Caution should be used at all times to avoid being
