La'ie, O'ahu, Hawai'i 

La'ie Vanilla is a family business producing beautifully aromatic Vanilla beans here on O'ahu. Because the natural pollinators for the Vanilla orchid are not present on the Hawaiian Islands, each flower is hand pollinated to produce fruit. 

We incorporate freshly dried beans by slicing the pods to release the tiny, sweet scented speckles of Vanilla and infuse them into our base oils for the Hibiscus Kissed Lip Oil, Vanilla Mint Lip Bar, Seven Seeds Nourishing Balm & Chocolate Balm.
