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.
It is pale yellow and is light and fluid in viscosity.
This is a particularly delicate and complex Carrot Seed oil that would lend itself well to natural perfumery.

The oil's high carotol content gives it its skin-rejuvenating properties. It can be added to nearly any skin care blend to enhance its effectiveness. It blends well with Helichrysum and Rosemary Verbenone and Rosehip seed oil for healing skin ailments. Further, Carrot Seed oil is said to balance both dry and oily complexions. Small amounts would go nicely in almost any skin care blend, and could be used alone in a neutral base cream.
