Carrot Seed Oil Information:

Carrot Seed essential oil is extracted by steam distillation, primarily from the dried seeds and secondarily from the dried plant itself. Wild Carrot is common in Europe and is also known by another name there, “Queen Anne’s Lace”. 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. Carrot Seed oil is rich in Carotene and Vitamin-A, both of which are great for the eyes and are effective antioxidants.
