    There are no bananas in banana oil. It is a synthetic compound made with Amy I-alcohol and gets it’s name simply from it’s banana-like aroma.

    Huey Rider: Sir; uses
    Banana oil commonly refers to a solution of isoamyl acetate in ethanol that is used as an artificial flavor. It is also used as a solvent for some varnishes and nitrocellulose lacquers.

    Used to be a very good hand cleaner for greasy hands that smelled like bananas, so I suppose it had that in it. I liked it because it did not have the grit in it like a lot of hand cleaners & you didn't have to wash/rinse it off. Just wipe dry with a towel. Don't know if they make it any more.
