CARROT SEED is probably most well known as an amazing oil for the skin. It can nourish, tighten, and rejuvenate the skin. It can help retain a youthful appearance by smoothing wrinkles and repairing the damage done by free radicals (oxidants) of the skin.
Also because of the antioxidants in Carrot Seed essential oil, it can also help stiff joints, digestion, and eyesight. It is antiseptic, antiviral, and a disinfectant, all of which help to clean infections and skin wounds. Carrot Seed can help with stress, has anticarcinogenic properties and helps eliminate toxins. It can help ease menstruation pains, treat ulcers, and stimulate appetite.
