Carrot Seed Essential Oil (Daucus carota)

According to recent and past literature and research, the following properties have been attributed to Carrot Seed essential oil:

Gastrointestinal: Small amounts are reported to be used to successfully regenerate the liver and gallbladder. Helpful for jaundice, worms, anorexia, colic and indigestion. It is well-known as a “carminative”, which means it relieves gas!

Genitourinary: Considered to be diuretic and useful against cystitis.

Endocrine/Reproductive: Documented to promote menses, so would be useful for absent or scanty menstrual cycles. There are reports that it is very helpful for cramps and glandular problems.

Central Nervous System: The literature reports that this oil “strengthens the mind”, and is useful for nervousness and excitability.

Dermatological: This area is one of the best uses of this oil and I can and do personally testify to its benefits in our creams that it restores tone and elasticity. It is beneficial for all skin types and improves the complexion. Franzesca Watson in her books states it “confers a more youthful appearance”. This oil is by many reports one of the best “beauty oils”, especially for the face, eyes, hands, feet, nails and neck. It is not recommended for use in lipbalms or on the lips. It has a history of being beneficial for broken capillaries, so would be especially useful for rosacea. It also has a history of being beneficial for eczema and psoriasis. Due to its high levels of carotene and Vitamin A, it is a powerful antioxidant and well-known for its ability to repair and prevent damage due to free radicals in our environment. We use this oil in absolutely all of our facial products and have seen proven results as we see that its reported value of being able to stimulate the growth of new cells and tissues apparently is true.

Musculoskeletal: Reported to be vasodilatory (increases and expands the size of blood vessels) and is a smooth muscle relaxant. It reduces accumulation of toxins and is good for rheumatism. This is one of the oils included in our Spicey Muscle Oil for both of these reasons.

Safety or Cautions: Considered to be non-toxic, and non skin-sensitizing. As with all oils, this oil must be diluted with a carrier prior to use.
