Carrot seed: Daucus carota ct. Carotol (L.)
Why carrot seed? Carrot has a long history of useful applications. Temple drawings from Egypt in 2000 BC may have depicted carrots, and Egyptian papyri illustrate how carrots and their seeds may be used for their qualities. Carrot seed oil has cleansing properties, and has a traditional reputation as being supportive to matured, aged skin.
Quality Assured: Our carrot seed essential oil is responsibly cultivated and sourced from India. The essential oil is steam distilled from the seeds of cultivated carrots. Additionally, our expert aromatherapists here at the Apothecary Shoppe personally assess all of our oils—using touch, taste, smell, and lab analyses—to ensure that your essential oil is suitable for use and entirely free of adulterants.
