How do I use Carrot Seed Essential Oil?

Carrot Seed Essential Oil

Carrot Seed Essential Oil

With so many great “staple” Young Living Essential Oils, it’s easy to get stuck using the same oils all the time. Would you like to step outside your comfort zone and try something new? Young Living’s Carrot Seed Oil is very versatile and a great oil for you to experiment with in both your face creams and even your cooking.

Carrot Seed is distilled from the seeds of the Wild Carrot or Queen Anne’s Lace Plant, not the carrots we buy to eat and juice. We are told that this plant is a weed, but history has proven us wrong! It has a fruity, sweet, warm aroma that is very calming and grounding. Definitely one to try in the diffuser if you have over- active children.

Carrot Seed essential oil vs. Carrot oil

Some might assume these oils are synonymous, but they’re completely different.

  • Carrot oil is a carrier oil. It’s derived from the carrot plant and contains high amounts of vitamin A. Because it’s a carrier oil, the consistency is lightly greasy.
  • Carrot Seed essential oil is produced by distilling seeds of the wild carrot plant (Daucus carota sativa). It features naturally occurring constituents carotol, alpha-pinene, sabinene, and beta caryophyllene, among others. The oil has a viscous but non-greasy consistency.
