My Oil of the Month for January is – 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. Why not step outside your comfort zone and try something new?
For example, Young Living’s Carrot Seed Essential Oil (you can check it out here) is a very versatile oil for you to experiment with in both your face creams and 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.
