Note: 1. The more vanilla beans you add to your mixture, the scent will be stronger. 2. If you leave the vanilla beans in your mixture over night, the vanilla scent will also get stronger.

Mix until everything is combined. If you want a stronger vanilla scent, feel free to add a few drops of vanilla extract into the mixture.
