Quick Overview

Carrot Oil, a supercritical CO2 extract of carrot root emulsified in Jojoba oil (Carrot Root extract would otherwise be solid paste). Carrot is considered one of the most therapeutic skin and hair care oils, with high amounts of natural carotenes. Highly recommended for addition to all skin and hair formulas, it is one of our most treasured oils for stimulating skin cell regeneration.

Botanical Name: Daucus carota

Also known as Queen Anne's Lace, and considered by some as a common weed, the wild carrot is a native to Europe, Asia and North Africa. It was introduced to North America in the 1600s, and the seeds were used medicinally and for seasoning food and drink, yet cultivation of this varietal for seed oil extraction mostly occurs in France today.

An annual herb, it has a white, inedible root (unlike the common eating varietal). It has a distinctly branched stem and umbels of small white flowers.

About the Oil
This essential oil is steam distilled from the seeds of carrots wild-grown in France.

It is pale yellow and is light and fluid in viscosity.

Aromatherapy Notes
This Carrot Seed oil has a unique warm, mildly sweet top note, a mildly earthy, woody middle note and a light, musty, herbaceous undertone. It combines well with Frankincense, Geranium, citrus oils such as Grapefruit or Lemon and spice oils such as Cardamom.

This is a particularly delicate and complex Carrot Seed oil that would lend itself well to natural perfumery.

Traditional Uses
Being a highly nutritious plant, the seeds from the Daucus carota plant have been used in traditional Eastern and Western medical practice for centuries. The seeds contain substantial amounts of Vitamins A, B1, B2 and C. It has therefore been used in treatments for colic, kidney and digestive issues as well as to promote menstruation.
