carrot seed oil


CARROT SEED OIL OVERVIEW

Carrot Seed Oil is mainly obtained from Wild Carrots, usually found in Europe. It is an annual or biannual herb with hairy leaves and umbels of white lacy flowers with purple centers. The name is derived from the Greek Carotos and it had a great medicinal value in ancient times, especially for its carminative properties.

Carrots have been around the Middle East and throughout Europe for centuries. The Greeks and the Romans were well aware of the medicinal properties of the oil from carrots. Vitamin A and carotene were identified by early alchemists who used a mixture of Carrot Seed Oil, Bergamot Oil, and Lemon Oil to treat a variety of skin and stomach disorders. The oil is harvested from wild carrot seeds using steam distillation. The plant is also the source for carrot oil.

The Carrot is a familiar edible root, which is unmistakably orange, was actually developed by the Dutch during the 17th century. The wild flower that Western’s call Queen Anne's Lace, which decorates bouquets and fills fields with specs of tiny white flowers, was brought to America by English settlers. The leaves are finely detailed and the flowers appear in tiny cluster with a purple floret in the center. Carrot Seed Oil is extracted from Daucus carota of the Apiaceae family and is also known as Wild Carrot and Queen Anne's Lace.

Carrot Seed Oil is the essential oil extract of the seed from the Carrot plant Daucus carota. The essential oil is obtained through steam distilled extraction from the dried seeds, but the whole of the plant can yield an essential oil. Carrot Seed Oil is a pale yellow to amber to pale orange-brown liquid in appearance. The oil has a woody, earthy sweet smell. The active constituents of Carrot Seed Oil extract are three flavones: luteolin, luteolin 3'-O-beta-D-glucopyranoside, and luteolin 4'-O-beta-D-glucopyranoside. The main chemical constituents of Carrot Seed Oil include a-pinene, camphene, b-pinene, sabinene, myrcene, y-terpinene, limonene, b-bisabolene, geranyl acetate and carotol. Rather than the extract the distilled (ethereal) oil is used in perfumery and food aromatization. The main constituent of this oil is carotol. Note: Pressed Carrot Seed Oil is extracted by cold-pressing the seeds of the Carrot plant. The properties of pressed Carrot Seed Oil are quite different from those of the essential oil.

CARROT SEED OIL USES
