Carrot seed is most revered for its skin healing properties for both dry as well as oily skin types. It has been shown to regenerate and rejuvenate dry and mature aging skin and balance over productive sebaceous glands. It is also known as a liver tonic for its detoxifying effects on the liver. Carrot seed oil can be used in face creams, body butters, and face masks. Carrot seed can also help heal sunburned skin and even prevent sun damage. Worn or aged skin may especially benefit from using carrot seed essential oil.
Carrot seed oil can also be used in hair products (just add a drop to a handful of shampoo) or added to a bath to soothe tired muscles. It rejuvenates the spirit, encourages personal growth, and provides a fresh sense of energy if you have been feeling worn-out.
Avoid using during pregnancy.
