Grown and distilled in France from certified organic carrot seeds
Let's go straight away to Arctander
Carrot seed essential oil is a yellow or amber colored to pale orange brown liquid of a dry-woody, root-like, earthy odor. The initial notes are sweet and fresh, but the tenaceous undertone and dryout is heavy, wet-earthy, fat-oily, slightly spicy. The flavor is warm-spicy, slightly biting at high concentration, but sweet and piquant.
It blends well with citruses, cassie, mimosa, geranium, and cedar.
This oil is used in detoxification; in particular for its hepatic, diuretic and depurative properties--in particular for the liver. If this is your intention, better read more about this, in greater depth.
Carrot seed is also known to be a cell regenerator for the skin and can be used in facial blends for various indications, including fine lines, wrinkles, sun damage, and skin orritations such as eczema.
It's also used extensively in food, spice blends and alcoholic beverages.
As with most essential oils, dilute before using on skin. Perform a patch test before use if essential oil sensitivity is suspected. Do not take essential oils internally. Do not use on children or pets. Seek advice from a trained aromatherapist before using on people with compromised immune systems. Keep away from eyes and mucus membranes. Do not use if pregnant, or think you might be.
