The Benefits of Carrot Seed Essential Oil
How many of you were told to eat your carrots as they help you see in the dark? Well, unfortunately, this is a myth derived from the British during World War II. While carrots provide Vitamin A (in beta-carotene form), they do not improve eyesight.
The good news is that carrot seed oil has many health benefits and is one of the best oils to rejuvenate and revitalize skin, hair, and body.
Carrot Seed Oil is not intended for internal consumption but is works very well with a carrier oil. A carrier oil helps dilute the essential oils as some are quite potent and can cause skin irritation if applied directly onto the skin.
