The specks are from apricot seed powder. I debated using vanilla powder but I've had such good luck with the apricot. Also, I used the FO from WSP that is just plain almond. It is a "cherry" type. To me it smells just like Zum Bar's almond and Method wood floor cleaner.PrairieCraft said:LOVE the almond cream. Almond FO is my favorite. Did you put vanilla bean in there or something. I have been trying a bunch of different almond FOs do you know of one that is super?
