Carrot Seed Essential Oil isn’t a widely known essential oil and I’d like to change that. It’s super good for the skin especially when combined with other nourishing oils. Plus, it’s easily incorporated into your lifestyle.
A Little History
This plant is native to Europe, Asia and North Africa. An interesting fact… the oil is produced mainly in France. The stem grows up to a foot and produces hairy leaves with white lacy flowers.
Considered a highly nutritious ingestible plant with the vitamins A, C, B1, and B2, it’s also been used as various tonics for hair and skin. Another interesting fact, carrot root has been used for ailments that include neutralizing stomach acid and cleansing the liver.
Carrot seed essential oil is obtained by steam distillation of the seeds. Carrots were actually used in medicinal remedies before they were introduced as food in the Roman and Grecian times.

Topical and Olfactory Uses
Carrot Seed essential oil has been found to be an anthelmintic, antiseptic, a carminative, depurative, diuretic, as well as am emmenagogue, stimulant, tonic, smooth muscle relaxant, antioxidant, astringent, hepatic, vasodilator, and parasiticide. This list is not exhaustive.
Due to the high vitamin content, this essential oil is used in skin care to treat wrinkles, eczema, psoriasis, rashes and mature skin. It’s been used in hair care as a moisturizer for brittle or dry hair.
I gotta tell ya, use caution with this essential oil. Carrot seed is potent and can cause warming to the skin so I highly recommend using a carrier oil.
Mixed with other oils such as Frankincense essential oil, Geranium essential oil, Lemon essential oil, Chamomile essential oil and Lavender essential, it becomes a lethal combination for those unwanted wrinkles.
Essential oil combinations are limitless
Throw in jojoba, argan or almond oil and you’ve got an all-natural winner that can’t be beat.
This oil can be used in a diffuser, lamp ring, soap-making, creams and perfumes. In fact, when put in a diffuser, you may experience calmness, tension relief, a mood uplift and increase in mental clarity.
