All small children are told to eat their carrots so they can see in the dark, but have you ever heard the one about putting carrot oil on your face? This is now a thing, and for good reason too! Carrot Seed Oil (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Carrot_seed_oil) has many skin rejuvenating properties, and consuming the food-grade oil can provide nourishment for your skin and body.
Why to use this oil? Summer? Always!
Amongst the countless other health benefits, carrot possesses the ability to detox the blood, tissues, organs and kidneys. Simply put, it supports the body’s natural ability to detox itself. Research suggests that carrot may be good for the treatment of arthritis as it detoxes the build-up of uric acid that circulates the bloodstream and deposits as sodium urate crystals in the joints.
Did you believe your parents when they told you that eating your carrots would give you superhuman vision? Be honest! Well, there is no need to feel entirely silly as Vitamin A (beta-carotene) works with lutein, a carotenoid, to help prevent loss of peripheral vision, and on its own Vitamin A protects the cornea, decreasing the risk of age-related macular degeneration.
The oil is antiviral and antiseptic, so it can ward off infections and has the potential to cure sores, ulcers and stomach problems.
If you are lacking in energy, carrot oil can solve this problem by stimulating circulation and metabolic functions, hormone secretion, brain functions and nerves. Working as a great stimulator to give you energy, it can also bring you peace and calm when using the carrot essential oil in aromatherapy. Not only does the aroma soothe anxiety and promote calm, but it relieves muscle aches too. This means that an energy-replenishing, soothing bath would have to include carrot essential oil. And your muscles would not mind it too! There are several interesting studies about its properties. More info in this article https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4769755/
How to make it easily at home?!
Your skin will love it!
First things first, this oil regulates skin sebum. It can balance out dry or oily skin whilst giving the skin enough moisture. The antiaging property of this oil is impressive, as it contains vitamins A, C and E, and all three are hailed as hero ingredients in skincare and against fine lines and wrinkles. Expect brightened and toned skin from a dull, lacklustre complexion, and watch as these antioxidants work to boost the elasticity of the skin.
Because of the anti-inflammatory effect of its high linoleic acid content, the oil can be used to treat and soothe sun-burned skin. Apply to the affected areas of soreness and redness. The Vitamin E in carrot oil adds extra healing and soothing for the inflammation.
It is actually used in many tanning oils on the market, so it is a great natural option for anyone wanting to build a golden tan. The production of melanin is stimulated when it is applied before sun exposure, which promotes a tanning of the skin. Not only this, but it can support your usual sun cream as well by adding extra SPF.
It is important to note that this oil should not replace your sun cream – it should only be used for extra protection. Add a few drops into your sun cream for extra protection with the knowledge that your skin is being deeply nourished at the same time.

• Keep stored in a cold, dark place. This will maintain maximum shelf life. If the oil has been refrigerated, it should be brought to room temperature before use.
• To prevent staining of bed sheets, it may be ideal to use this oil first thing in the morning instead of night. Also, a little goes a long way, so if you would prefer to apply in the evening then you only need a few drops. Make sure to rub it in gently but thoroughly and leave a good few hours before bed to prevent staining
