This oil is extracted by steam distillation from the dried seeds of the wild carrot (Daucus carota). It holds a strong "earthy" scent which some may find displeasing and others (like me) will enjoy. Use it a blending oil for its benefits, and not necessarily its scent. If kept at a low ratio, it should be easy to mask with other essential oils.
Carrot seed essential oil is an effective cleansing agent for skin pores, and there is evidence that it helps stimulate the production of new cells.
As with all essential oils, dilute into carrier oils before applying them directly onto the skin. Keep oils away from eyes and mucous membranes. Keep out of reach of children. Stop using if there is any irritation. Research each oil well before using. Some oils cannot be used by those with certain health conditions.
