 Vanilla Bean

We are Jill and Paul, and we started VanillaPura in 2016 after Jill made homemade vanilla extract at home for the holidays. There was so much misinformation online, we set out to create the most comprehensive at-home extract-making information center on the internet. We also wanted to create an easy and affordable way to purchase vanilla beans from around the world in one place. 

Today, we have dozens of tips and tricks in our extract-making center that are tried and true. We have also created a Facebook group and Facebook page of more than 100,000 extract-making fans from around the world that LOVE talking about extract making and helping new people learn. We're just starting our TikTok group as well as YouTube, Reddit and others that are all linked below. 

You are invited to join our Facebook group, "Making Vanilla Extract by VanillaPura" to meet the sweetest extract-makers from around the globe that love sharing ideas and talking about how to make all kinds of extracts at home. Vanilla extract, chocolate extract, coffee extract, fruit and nut extracts, mint, ginger and so much more. If Facebook isn't your thing, check out our other social media platforms below. 

Here is a clip from one of our recent live extract making parties that we regularly host in our group. In this short tutorial, you can learn how to make your first vanilla extract at home in under 10 minutes:
