Carrot Seed Oil Benefits

Carrot Seed Essential Oil is said to have a cleansing effect on the mind. It may help to relieve feelings of stress and exhaustion. This oil is an excellent purifier of the body, mainly due to its detoxifying effect on the liver when used in massage oils and baths. In skin care, this is an excellent oil to improve the complexion due to its strengthening effect on red blood cells, adding tone and elasticity to the skin. It apparently gives a more “youthful” appearance and it is said to remove “age spots.” Carrot Seed Essential Oil is also said to alleviate other problems such as weeping sores and ulcers. Generally healing to inflamed wounds as well as dry and hard skin, callouses and corns. Further, it vitalizes the hydpodermis and is recommended for the treatment of aged skin, dermatitis, skin rashes and wrinkles.

P. Mailhebiau: Portraits in Oils –
‘Mailhebiau refers to D. carota as the symbol of life or death, the gift of self or egoism in the middle of the crowd, for those who seem to use both these tendencies according to the opportunity of the moment and the advantage that one hope to get out of it.’

In Perfumery, Carrot Seed Oil is used for its fatty woody notes which blend well with Cypress, Citrus oils, Costus Oil, CassiaMimosa, Geranium oils, and Cedarwood derivatives. We like to blend it with Bergamot, Fennel, Juniper, Lavender, Lemon, Lime, Melissa, Neroli, Orange, Petitgrain, Rosemary.

bergamot essential oil - Citrus bergamia

Spotlight: Try Our Bergamot Essential Oil, Citrus bergamia

Bergamot Essential Oil has such a light, delicate, refreshing scent. This beautiful oil is the product of the bergamot tree, the most delicate of all citrus plants, which demands a special climate and soil.  This make the tree somewhat difficult to grow outside of Italy, though bergamot trees are also grown in France, Côte d’Ivoire, and southern Turkey. The scent of bergamot is somewhat reminiscent of a combination of orange and lemon, with slight floral overtones.

Note:
Bergamot is from the expressed rinds of the fruit.
Petitgrain is from the distillation of the leaves.

Uses

Bergamot Essential Oil is one of the most common perfume ingredients, where it is used as a top note. Its uplifting yet sedative character is wonderful for anxiety, depression, and nervous tension. It has a combined cooling and refreshing quality that may diminish anger and frustration. This oil has been known to regulate the appetite, which may make it useful for sufferers of Anorexia Nervosa. It is also an excellent insect repellant.

The chemical constituents of Bergamot Essential Oil include Linalool, Nerol, Terpinol (Alcohol), Linalyl acetate (Ester), Bergaptene (Lactone), Dipentene, and Limonene (Terpenes).

Blends

We like to blend Bergamot Essential Oil with Chamomile, Cypress, Eucalyptus, Geranium, Jasmine, Lavender, Lemon, Neroli, Patchouli and Ylang Ylang.
