Carrot Seed

Carrot Seed- AroMed's Daucus carota is organically grown in India. The dried seeds are steam distilled. In the umbelliferae or apiaceae plant family, the oil is a middle note and has a dry, warm and mildly sweet, earthy aroma.

Uses-

  • Best known for its remarkable benefits to aging skin, carrot essential oil is a cellular regenerator of skin cells, helping with skin tone and elasticity...revitalizing for tired skin related to age or environmental stress.
  • Carrot not only regenerates skin cells, but liver cells as well. It is held in high esteem for its detoxification and diuretic qualities. It can be helpful in massage or bath blends for women's health, digestive and rheumatic complaints.
  • Cantele and Purchon state, " carrot seed oil is currently being used in the treatment of jaundice, and its diuretic effects are beneficial in cases of bladder infections and kidney stones. It is said to increase the production of red corpuscles, so it could be used in conjunction with medical treatment for anemia and other complaints that occasion weakness and lethargy."
  • Just as carrot seed oil has a cleansing effect on the body, it has emotionally cleansing qualities, and can aid stress and exhaustion.

Blends well with- bergamot, cedarwood, cinnamon, citrus oils, frankincense, geranium, juniper berry, lavender, rosemary, ylang ylang

Notes of interest- Carrot seed oils aroma is not for everyone. If using for skin care, I recommend blending with other skin nurturing, strongly aromatic oils, like geranium, ylang ylang, frankincense or lavender.
