Product Description

Carrot seed essential oil is extracted from Daucus carota of the Apiaceae family and is also known as wild carrot and Queen Anne’s lace. This is an essential oil extracted from the seeds and do not confuse it with the cheaper macerated “carrot oil” made when people infuse the carrot material in a base oil.

Carrot Seed Essential Oil must be one of the most underrated essential oils in aromatherapy. It has a soft earthy smell and not only helps to relieve stress and exhaustion, but is a powerful detoxifier and liver booster, while stimulating and rejuvenating the skin in general, thereby adding elasticity to any skin. At the same time it fights any skin problems, such as psoriasis, eczema, weeping sores, ulcers, boils and carbuncles. The formative action on the epidermal cells helps to keep wrinkles at bay and is also helpful when fighting liver spots (age spots).
