Daucus Carota Seed Oil

SUGGESTED USE & BENEFITS
Two of the most prominent substances in essential carrot oil, carotene, and vitamin A, contribute to its exceptional regenerative and anti-oxidant properties. This makes it an excellent choice in blends/lotions for hydrating and revitalising dull, tired skin. The antiseptic qualities mean this oil can also be used to counter more serious skin problems, such as ulcers, sores, and infections.
Benefits and Common Uses
The oil’s protective, detoxing, and regenerative qualities mean that it is an excellent tonic for the internal organs and, in particular, for purifying the liver and digestive tract. Its ability to protect against free radicals and regenerate cells makes it invaluable in blends for detox treatments.
