Question Can You Use Flavor Oil In Hair Products?

I ordered some oils from Camden Grey, one of which is a vanilla flavor oil. I just wanted to know if I can use it in my hair mixes for scent (in small quantities, of course), or if that's not appropriate. I assume it's made for consumption, so can it "spoil" my mixture? Thanks!

Yeah, you can use flavor oils, no problem. Interesting to note, flavor oils don't actually taste like things like vanilla, they smell like them. They're basically food-safe fragrance oils. When you add a sweetener to your product with the flavor oil the scent and sweetness trick your mind into thinking it's tasting something.
