Homemade Vanilla Extract Ingredients
To make your own homemade vanilla extract, you’ll need:
- 8 oz. bottles
- vodka (the cheap stuff counts, too!)
- Grade B Madagascar vanilla beans (you can also use Grade A, but Grade B is considered to be better for extracting)
- printable tags (optional)
For each 8 oz. bottle of vanilla extract, you’ll need about 6 vanilla beans.
How To Make Homemade Vanilla Extract
With a knife, slice each vanilla bean down the center to expose the seeds.
Place about 6 vanilla beans in each jar, and completely submerge in vodka.
Seal with the jar top lid, and you’re done!

Totally optional, but you can also print off some cute homemade vanilla extract labels like these:
My labels include a space for you to write the date you made your DIY vanilla extract, as well as timing and placement for the recipient.
