Carrot Seed Essential Oil Health Benefits
Carrot Seed Essential Oil is thought to possesses many health benefits. It is profoundly enlivening for facial and bodily skin, but many of the health benefits of this potent aromatherapy oil influence us at a systemic level.
For example, Carrot Seed Essential Oil is thought to provide many health benefits to our major detox organ: our Liver. Because we live in an increasingly toxic world, where air, soil and sea pollution are at extremely dangerous levels, the more we can do to support our Liver the better.
It is our Liver which has to eliminate all of these toxins out of the body.
We are breathing in, drinking and eating many, many toxins a day. For many of us, this means an overworked and malfunctioning Liver, which then leads to hormone imbalance, anxiety and depression and outbreaks of Acne and other skin conditions like Eczema etc.
Carrot Seed Essential Oil Health Benefits Include :: Anti-fungal + anti-inflammatory + antioxidant + carminative ( reducing bloating & gas) + cicatrisant (wound healing) + diuretic + vermifuge (rids us of certain intestinal worms)
According to Researchgate in their research paper entitled :: Nutritional and Health Benefits of Carrots and Their Seed Extracts, written by João Silva Dias, Technical University of Lisbon:
Carrot is a root vegetable with carotenoids, flavonoids, polyacetylenes, vitamins, and minerals, all of which possess numerous nutritional and health benefits. Besides lending truth to the old adage that carrots are good for eyes, carotenoids, polyphenols and vitamins present in carrot act as antioxidants, anticarcinogens, and immuno-enhancers. Anti-diabetic, cholesterol and cardiovascular disease lowering, anti-hypertensive, hepatoprotective, reno-protective, and wound healing benefits of carrot have also been reported. The cardio- and hepatoprotective, anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, anti-inflammatory, and analgesic effects of carrot seed extracts are also noteworthy. All are discussed in this review article.
Carrot Seed Essential Oil is an “extract” of carrot seeds. Because seeds germinate into new plants they contain very dense amounts of the nutrients needed for the success of the plant. It is these nutrients which are so healing for us also.
Carrot Seed Essential Oil Energetic Healing
Carrot Seed Aromatherapy Oil is not the most favourable smelling essential oil, but from an energetic perspective it’s largely got us covered. It is excellent for clearing stagnant abdominal energy as well as providing energetic support to our Pineal Gland, or third eye.
The benefits of Carrot Seed Essential Oil to our third eye are one of the key reasons FACIAL OIL No. 8 helps users to feel more clear minded and inspired! A clear third eye allows us to see and feel more clear from a spiritual perspective, which in turn, allows us to feel more inspired and intuitive. All the best artists tell us they are just a vessel for Divine inspiration… so if you want to be a receptive vessel it’s important to keep a clear third eye.
Sadly, our third eye / Pineal Gland can become calcified. Read Detoxing Fluoride With Tamarind to find out how to further enhance the clarity of your Pineal Gland.
As already mentioned, Carrot Seed Essential Oil is very supportive of Liver health. The Liver is where our anger tends to go at a metaphysical level. So, unexpressed anger and festering chronic anger tends to hang out in our Livers, making them sluggish and less effective. Carrot Seed Essential Oil is a great antidote.
Carrot Seed Essential Oil is a great Kidney cleanser as well as Liver cleanser. This is why it acts as a diuretic.
It is important to massage your Carrot Seed Essential Oil and Palmarosa Essential Oil massage oil blend into your kidneys (the area above your hips) as well as al over your abdomen.

Carrot Seed Essential Oil Traditional Uses
Carrot Seed Essential Oil has been traditionally used to support healthy elimination. Topically applying a Carrot Seed Essential Oil based massage oil to the abdomen is ideal for this.
Carrot Seed Essential Oil has also been an age-old treatment for gout.
Both of these applications are derived from the excellent stimulant qualities of Carrot Seed Essential Oil.
However, Carrot Seed Essential Oil is also carminative, which means it helps eliminate gastric discomfort and gas. This has led to many traditional uses for digestive issues.
As well as supporting good digestion, traditional uses of this aromatherapy oil also include the elimination of intestinal parasites. Again applying a Carrot Seed Essential Oil massage rub to your abdomen would be helpful for this purpose. Perhaps consider accompanying this with Nigella Sativa Oil & Oregano Essential Oil to successfully treat parasites.

*Some source material states that Carrot Seed Essential Oil may be slightly phototoxic when distilled from wild carrots. However this is refuted in other respectable well recognised texts. In any case, it is always wise to perform a skin sensitivity test, also know as a skin patch test, so it is entirely feasible to test for phototoxicity in the same way, but separately from your skin sensitivity test, of course.
The Organic Carrot Seed Essential Oil used in FACIAL OIL No. 8 and this Carrot Seed Essential Oil are not phototoxic in our experience.
FACIAL OIL No. 8 has been tested by thousands of women with no adverse effects reported. Many people use FACIAL OIL No. 8 during the summer months.
