Carrot seed

Daucus carotta

Botanical Properties

The common carrot is produced by a herbaceous plant that has small white flowers that are distributed in umbrella shaped flowering tops. It belongs to the Apiaceae family. It is generally grown for its bright orange root that is used as a staple vegetable. However, in aromatherapy, it is its seeds that are distilled.

Origin and history

There are many varieties of carrot: in fact there are over 500 different types on record. Carrots have been produced for many thousands of years in Europe, and have been used throughout the world in many cuisines, in both their raw and cooked form. Its low calorie count, and high beta-carotene and mineral content make this vegetable a popular component of many balanced meals and diets. This plant’s essential oil will give your skin that extra boost of tender loving care.
