Well hello there! I know its been a few weeks since I've made a blog post but I could never forget you...
Do you or anyone you know use essential oils in your lives? In your homes, places of business and with your friends and families? I've worked with and studied Aromatherapy for a while now. I would like to share with you some of what I've learned and feature oils while we are at it. I want to introduce you to, improve your literacy and understanding of and assist you in cultivating a knowledge based and healthy respect for these wonderful concentrations.
Getting to know Carrot Seed Essential Oil
Carrot Seed are the seeds of a plant known as Wild Carrot, Queen Anne's Lace or by its botanical name Daucus Carota. This is a thin oil that has a aroma that can be described as earthy, warm, woody and mildly sweet. Its most commonly steam distilled and is a golden hue.
Queen Anne or Daucus Carota is a beautiful and multi dimensional plant. As you continue to grow in your study you will find that to be the case about all plants if you don't already know. One plant is capable of doing so much often times which makes for a perpetual state of learning. So, this is not going to be a comprehensive, but a introduction or refresher on working with Carrot Seed essential oil. To support you on your journey I've shared some books that are must haves for anyone working with essential oils below.
Carrot Seed Essential oil is an amazing ally when creating skincare blends for yourself and perhaps family. Its one that I have had in my oil collection for a very long time but I don't often use it when making skincare blends for others.

Its very important when working with oils or ordering skincare from a merchant that you verify that they have some understanding of the oils they are working with. Also, for yourself, make it a habit to verse yourself in the ingredients of items that you place on your body. Your skin in the largest organ of your body, it is your external mouth, your first line of defense for your immune system. So protecting and supporting the health of your skin while also understanding that it is the conduit through which many things are either prevented or caused is an imperative.
This oil is unsuitable for women in the birthing season of their lives as it can induce miscarriage. The herb is the same. Queen Anne isn't a plant you want to use in any form if you're pregnant, planning on getting pregnant or nursing. Its very important that you are aware of the ingredients in the natural products that you purchase, or are cautious in your preparations.
Essential oils are concentrates of several hundred pounds of plant matter. Literally fields of flowers, trees etc are harvested in order to make a very small quantity of oil. This means, that essential oils aren't something to abuse or over use. And also, considering that essential oils are the concentrate of a plant and its properties its something to respect and understand that these oils can have real reactions, positive or negative so I highly recommend that you invest into studying them and / or taking courses with Aromatherapist educators.
