What is Carrot Seed?
The wild carrot plant is much different than the root vegetable. Commonly referred to as Queen Anne’s Lace, this flowering plant is known as a “beneficial weed” that grows in many regions of the world. It is part of the same family as caraway, cumin, dill, and fennel. While it shares some fragrant notes with its relatives, it also retains its own unique fragrance.
Carrot Seed Essential Oil is a popular additive to skin creams and useful in aromatherapeutic practices as well.

Steam distilled from the seeds, its aroma is earthy, spicy, and slightly sweet. Carrot Seed Oil can be balancing in aromatherapy practices and also promote feelings of rejuvenation and stimulating energy for the mind. Its inclusion as an additive for skin creams is because it may also rejuvenate and hydrate the skin.
Blending essential oils opens up a world of wellness possibilities! Other oils that complement carrot seed oil’s earthy fragrance include: bergamot, black pepper, cedarwood, cinnamon, cypress, geranium, orange, mandarin, patchouli, and sandalwood oils.
