    CARROT HERBAL & ESSENTIAL OIL DESCRIPTION

    Today's Carrot is a domesticated form of the wild carrot Daucus carota, native to Europe and southwestern Asia. The domestic carrot has been selectively bred for its greatly enlarged and more palatable, less woody-textured edible taproot. The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) reports that world production of carrots and turnips (these plants are combined by the FAO for reporting purposes) for calendar year 2011 was almost 35.658 million tonnes. Almost half were grown in China. Carrots are widely used in many cuisines, especially in the preparation of salads, and carrot salads are a tradition in many regional cuisines.

    carrot varieties


    The Carrot (Daucus carota) is a root vegetable, usually orange in color, though purple, red, white, and yellow varieties exist. It has a crisp texture when fresh. The most commonly eaten part of a carrot is a taproot, although the greens are sometimes eaten as well. The carrot is a biennial plant that grows a rosette of leaves in the spring and summer, while building up the stout taproot that stores large amounts of sugars for the plant to flower in in the second year. The taproot has an outer cortex and an inner core. High quality carrots have a large proportion of cortex compared to core. Taproots typically have a conical shape, although cylindrical and round cultivars are available. The root diameter can range from 0.4-inch to as much as 4 inches at the widest part. The root length ranges from 2 to 19.7-inches, although most are between 4 and 10-inches in length.

    carrot flowers


    Flowers are small and white, sometimes with a light green or yellow tint. They consist of five petals, five stamens, and an entire calyx. A plant can be in the process of flowering for 30 to 50 days. They flowers attract pollenating insects. After fertilization and as seeds develp, the outer unbellets of an unbel bend inward causing the unbel shape to change from slightly convex or fairly flat to concave, and when cupped it resembles a bird's nest.

    mature carrot seeds


    The fruit that develops is a schizocarp consisting of two mericarps; each mericarp is an achene or true seed. The paired mericarps are easily separated when they are dry. Premature separation (shattering) before harvest is undesirable because it can result in seed loss. Mature seeds are flattened on the commissural side that faced the septum of the ovary. The flattened side has five longitudinal ribs. The bristly hairs that protrude from some ribs are usually removed by abrasion during milling and cleaning. Seeds also contain oil ducts and canals. Seeds vary somewhat in size, ranging from less than 500 to more than 1000 seeds per gram.

    CARROT HISTORY

    The wild ancestors of the carrot are likely to have come from Iran and Afghanistan, which remain the center of diversity of Daucus carota, the wild carrot. A naturally occurring subspecies of the wild carrot, Daucus carota subsp. sativus, has been selectively bred over the centuries to reduce bitterness, increase sweetness and minimize the woody core. This has produced the familiar garden vegetable.

    When they were first cultivated, carrots were grown for their aromatic leaves and seeds rather than their roots. Carrot seeds have been found in Switzerland and Southern Germany dating to 2000 to 3000 BC. Some close relatives of the carrot are still grown for their leaves and seeds, for example parsley, fennel, dill and cumin. The first mention of the root in classical sources is during the 1st century. The plant appears to have been introduced into Europe via Spain by the Moors in the 8th century. In the 10th century, in such locations in the Middle East, India and Europe, the roots were purple. The modern carrot originated in Afghanistan at about this time. The 12th-century Arab Andalusian agriculturist, Ibn al-'Awwam, describes both red and yellow carrots. The Jewish scholar Simeon Seth also mentions roots of these colors in the 11th century. Cultivated carrots appeared in China in the 14th century, and in Japan in the 18th century. Orange-colored carrots appeared in the Netherlands, where the flag included orange, in the 17th century. These, the modern carrots, were intended by the antiquary John Aubrey (1626 to 1697) when he noted in his memoranda "Carrots were first sown at Beckington in Somersetshire. Some very old Man there [in 1668] did remember their first bringing hither." European settlers introduced the carrot to Colonial America in the 17th century. Purple carrots, still orange on the inside, were sold in British stores starting in 2002.

    The ancient Greeks first used Carrots for medicinal purposes, particularly for stomach disorders. Carrots are an excellent source of the carotenoids that produce vitamin A, especially the carotenoid beta-carotene, but they also contain high amounts of magnesium, potassium, vitamins C and B complex, and a form of calcium that is readily absorbed by the body. This vegetable is said to help cleanse the intestines and have diuretic, re-mineralizing, anti-diarrheal, and anti-anemic properties, as well as being a good overall tonic. Carrots are also rich in alkaline which purify and revitalize the blood, nourish the entire system, and help maintain the acid-alkaline balance in the body.

    carrot seed oil


    CARROT SEED ESSENTIAL OIL

    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 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 USES, HEALTH BENEFITS & SCIENTIFIC EVIDENCE

    Carrots have a reputation of helping maintain good eyesight, but they also stimulate the appetite. This vegetable is used to treat asthma, general nervousness, dropsy, flatulence, chronic coughs, dysentery, windy colic, chronic renal diseases, anemia, and rheumatism. It is also effective in treating skin disorders such as broken veins/capillaries, burns, creeping impetigo, wrinkles and sun damage. Carrots also help stimulate milk flow during lactation. There is some scientific evidence that suggests Carrots can prevent cancerous growths as well. Carrot tea can help promote menstruation. Carrot juice, when combined with Beet root, is used as a blood purifier and an anti-diarrhea agent.

    carrots with green tops


    Most carrot cultivars are about 88% water, 7% sugar, 1% protein, 1% fiber, 1% ash, and 0.2% fat. The fiber comprises mostle cellulose, with smaller proportions of hemicellulose and lignin. Carrots contain almost no starch. Free sugars in Carrot include sucrose, glucose, xylose and fructose. Most of the taste of the vegetable is due to glutamic acid and other free amino acids. Carrots are also rich in antioxidants and minerals. The carrot gets its characteristic bright orange color from beta carotene and lesser amounts of alpha carotene and gamma carotene. Alpha and beta carotenes are partially metabolized into vitamin A in humans. Beta carotene is the predominant carotenoid, although there are lesser amounts of alpha and gamma carotene. There are approximately 6000 to 54,000 mcg or carotenoids per 100 grams of carrot root. Different varieties of carrots contain differing amounts of these antioxidant phytonutrients. Red and purple carrots, for example, are best known for the rich anthocyanin content. Orange carrots are particularly outstanding in terms of beta carotene, which accounts for 65% of their total carotenoid content. In yellow carrots, 50% of the total carotenoids come from lutein. The areas of antioxidant benefits, cardiovascular benefits, and anti-cancer benefits are the best-researched areas of health research with respect to dietary intake of carrots.

    Carrot roots are used as an emmenogogue to increase blood flow to the pelvic area and uterus, a carminative to reduce flatulence, to treat digestive problems, intestinal parasites, and tonsillitis or constipation. Lack of vitamin A can cause poor vision, including night vision, and this can be remedies by adding vitamin A to the diet. Massive overconsumption of carrots can cause carotenosis, a benign condition in which the skin turns orange.

    CULINARY USES OF CARROTS

    Carrots can be eaten in a variety of ways. Only 3 percent of the beta carotene in raw carrots is released during digestion: this can be improved to 39% by pulping, cooking and adding cooking oil. Alternatively they may be chopped and boiled, fried or steamed, and cooked in soups and stews, as well as baby and pet foods. A well-known dish is carrots julienne. Together with onion and celery, carrots are one of the primary vegetables used in a mirepoix to make various broths.

    Carrot greens are edible as a leaf vegetable, but are only occasionally eaten by humans. Some sources suggest that the greens contain toxic alkaloids. When used for this purpose, they are harvested young in high-density plantings, before significant root development, and typically used stir-fried, or in salads.

    In India carrots are used in a variety of ways, as salads or as vegetables added to spicy rice or dal dishes. A popular variation in north India is the Gajar Ka Halwa carrot dessert, which has carrots grated and cooked in milk until the whole mixture is solid, after which nuts and butter are added. Carrot salads are usually made with grated carrots with a seasoning of mustard seeds and green chillies popped in hot oil. Carrots can also be cut in thin strips and added to rice, can form part of a dish of mixed roast vegetables or can be blended with tamarind to make chutney.

    Since the late 1980s, baby carrots or mini-carrots (carrots that have been peeled and cut into uniform cylinders) have been a popular ready-to-eat snack food available in many supermarkets. Carrots are pureed and used as baby food, dehydrated to make chips, flakes, and powder, and thinly sliced and deep-fried, like potato chips.

    The sweetness of carrots allows the vegetable to be used in some fruit-like roles. Grated carrots are used in carrot cakes, as well as carrot puddings, an English dish thought to have originated in the early 19th century. Carrots can also be used alone or with fruits in jam and preserves. Carrot juice is also widely marketed, especially as a health drink, either stand-alone or blended with fruits and other vegetables.

    GARDEN USES OF CARROTS - COMPANION PLANTING

    Carrots are useful companion plants for gardeners. The pungent odor of onions, leeks and chives help repel the carrot root fly, and other vegetables that team well with carrots include lettuce, tomatoes and radishes, as well as the herbs rosemary and sage. Carrots thrive in the presence of carraway, coriander, chamomile, marigold and Swan River daisy. If left to flower, the carrot, like any umbellifer, attracts predatory wasps that kill many garden pests.

    CARROT DOSAGE INFORMATION

    Carrots comes in various forms and is an ingredient in many products. For best results, read and follow product label directions.

    If growing your own Carrots for consumption, it is important to know that during the first five months of storage they will actually increase their vitamin A content, and if protected from heat and light, can hold their nutrient content for another two or three months. Since Carrots are rich in beta carotene, steaming them makes this nutrient more readily absorbed by the body.

    Carrots can be stored for several months in the refrigerator or over winter in a moist, cool place. For long term storage, unwashed carrots can be placed in a bucket between layers of sand, a 50/50 mix of sand and wood shavings, or in soil. A temperature range of 32 to 40°F is best.

    PREPARING CARROTS

    Wash carrot roots and gently scrub them with a vegetable brush right before eating. Unless the carrots are old, thick or not grown organically, it is not necessary to peel them. If they are not organically grown, peel them; most all conventionally grown carrots are grown using pesticides and other chemicals. If the stem end is green, it should be cut away as it will be bitter. Depending upon the recipe or your personal preference, carrots can be left whole or julienned, grated, shredded or sliced into sticks or rounds.

    Carrots are delicious eaten raw or cooked. While heating can often damage some of the delicate phytonutrients in vegetables, the beta-carotene as found in carrots has been shown to be surprisingly heat-stable. In fact, carrots' beta-carotene may become more bioavailable through well-timed steaming. Still, be careful not to overcook carrots if you want to your carrots to retain their maximum flavor and strong overall nutritional value.

    Of all of the cooking methods we tried when cooking carrots, steaming is preferred as the healthiest method. It provides the greatest flavor and is also a method that allows for concentrated nutrient retention. When study participants were asked to evaluate the flavor and overall acceptability of different carrot cooking methods, they significantly favored the flavor and overall acceptability of steamed carrots to boiled carrots. This preference was even expressed by participants who had always boiled carrots in their previous kitchen practices.

    To steamed carrots, fill the bottom of the steamer with 2 inches of water and bring to a rapid boil. Slice carrots 1/4-inch thick and steam for 5 minutes. Transfer to a bowl. For more flavor, toss carrots with a Mediterranean Dressing. If you are looking for carrots with an extra zing, try carrots with a honey mustard sauce.

    1 tablespoon Lemon Juice
    1 clove Garlic, minced
    Sea Salt and Pepper to taste.

    Toss your favorite salad with the ingredients and serve. Serves 2.

    CARROT SAFETY, CAUTIONS & INTERACTIONS INFORMATION

    Carrots are regarded as safe as they are recognized as a vegetable for consumption.

    If you eat too many carrots, your skin can become discolored. It is easily remedied by cutting down the amount you eat or take as a supplement. Excessive consumption of carotene-rich foods may lead to a condition called carotoderma in which the palms or other skin develops a yellow or orange cast. This yellowing of the skin is presumably related to carotenemia, excessive levels of carotene in the blood. The health impact of carotenemia is not well researched. Eating or juicing high amounts of foods rich in carotene, like carrots, may over tax the body's ability to convert these foods to vitamin A. The body slowly converts carotene to vitamin A, and extra carotene is stored, usually in the palms, soles or behind the ears. If the cause of the carotenemia is eating excessively high amounts of foods like carrots, the condition will usually disappear after reducing consumption.

    Some people are allergic to carrots. In a 2010 study on the prevalence of food allergies in Europe, 3.6 percent of young adults showed some degree of sensitivity to carrots. Because the major carrot allergen, the protein Dauc c 1.0104, is cross-reactive with homologues in birch pollen (Bet v 1) and mugwort pollen (Art v 1), most carrot allergy sufferers are also allergic to pollen from these plants.

    Essential Carrot Seed Oil is non-toxic, but should be avoided during pregnancy.
