Dr. Nick Notes
Carrot Seed is a more exotic & rare botanical extract. Carrot seed provides a superior skin care ingredient with a rich nutrient profile to support regeneration & nourishment of the skin. Very calming to the nervous system, Carrot Seed (CO2) has a relaxing quality to its essence. Carrot seed is a spectacular ingredient for use with therapeutic formulas and in very small quantities can really help soften the scent, enhance relaxation and add a nourishing quality. Carrot Seed is wonderful applied to the skin before, during and after sun exposure with its nutritive properties.
Carrot Seed extract can be a wonderful digestive agent, I have found applying this onto the stomach and taking deep inhalations to be helpful for stomach upsets & nausea. The scent is very soothing and calming, like a comfort and can reduce anxiety or high-levels of stress. Very important to avoid this extract during times of pregnancy or breastfeeding as Chinese research found at high doses Carrot Seed to have an abortifactant reaction - YIKES!
How to Use
- Antifungal ~ Combine carrot seed with other antifungal essential oils like clove, geranium or tea tree. Diffuse, spray, or create a diluted topical application - test on small area to assure safety / no skin reaction before applying onto skin.
- Digestive Aid ~ include 1-3 drops of carrot seed essential oil in culinary preparations, making sure to stir it into a lipid before adding it to the full recipe.
- Massage 1-3 drops into your temples to counter-balance dizziness.
- Repair Damaged Skin ~ massage carrot oil into your body for its power to rejuvenate skin cells. This may be beneficial for skin conditions including eczema or psoriasis as well.
- Rub 1-3 drops into your palms and deep inhale 3 times for nausea or upset stomach - Then massage onto your belly using clockwise circular strokes.
