Somewhere along the way, the beauty industry began packing products with harsh and cheap chemicals that provide short-term solutions and sometimes irritating side-effects. Youthful, healthy-looking skin should not come at the cost of our overall health. Carrot seed essential oil blended with carrier oils can act as a non-chemical defense against the appearance of wrinkles and environmentally stressed, dry skin.

Queen Anne’s Lace is the source of this marvelous and fruity-fragrant essential oil. This plant is also the ancestor of our common garden carrot. The fragrance similarities are unmistakable in the fresh plants. Our carrot seed oil is extracted through a gentle, steam-distillation process. Its woody and spicy-sweet aroma has a wonderfully layered, subtle-yet-spicy earthiness. Pure carrot seed essential oil imparts a marvelous and nourishing benefit to skincare masques, lotions and salves.

Frequently Asked Questions
Does Carrot Seed essential oil have SPF?
  • Carrot seed essential oil, Daucus carota, has numerous benefits for skin health and properties that are anti-aging, antioxidant and anti-inflammatory. However, according to Healthline, despite a study that claimed Carrot Seed oil has SPF, the facts are that “protection from the sun is not one of them {skin benefits]. Like carrot oil, carrot seed [essential] oil has no known SPF, and should not be used as a sunscreen.”
How to make Carrot Seed essential oil?
  • Carrot Seed essential oil is made via steam distillation. In steam distillation, plant material is placed in a still, water is added, then heat is applied to the unit. As water heats, plants release their essential oil, the oil rises with steam droplets that are sucked into a pipe and the oil and water are then separated. While it may not be possible to make Carrot Seed essential oil at home without a still, you can make aromatic hydrosol water that contains many of the same therapeutic benefits as essential oil.

How to use Carrot Seed essential oil?
  • There are several ways to effectively use Carrot Seed essential oil and obtain its benefits, including 1.) For aging skin, add 5 drops of Carrot seed oil with 5 drops of Cedarwood and 5 drops of Myrrh essential oil to 1 oz of Rosehip seed oil and massage into face daily. 2.) Add 10 drops to an Essential Oil Inhaler and take it with you for on-the-go therapeutic use. 3.)

Use a combination that totals 12- 15 drops of essential oils and massage the blend into the skin under make up and at night before bed. Rosehip seed oil is best kept in a cool, dark place like the refrigerator to preserve its beneficial skin properties.
What does Carrot Seed essential oil smell like?
  • Although some might consider the aroma of Carrot Seed oil to be slightly unpleasant with its woody, warm and root-earth notes combo, it is well worth considering in blends to improve the appearance of facial skin. Blended into facial massage oils, the aromatics of carrot seed essential oil combined with other oils can mask the rawness of the oil and can help to give your skin a natural radiant complexion.
