Carrot Seed Essential Oil Variations
This amazing oil is a non-staining, possibly because it is clear in colour and has the distinctive smell that Bugs Bunny adores. The earthy, sweet, woody smell is brimming with middle notes.
It is a calming (carminative) and gentle oil that has long been used for its medicinal value. The name is derived from the Greek 'Carotos' and it had great medicinal value in ancient times, especially for its carminative properties. In modern application, it is used for cancer patients, especially those with stomach and throat problems.
Also said to be a very calming oil and useful for detoxification and helpful with water retention. Since carrot seed oil contains carotene and vitamin A, it is also very good for healthy skin, hair, gums and teeth and is also associated with good eyesight. After all, you never see a rabbit wearing glasses!
