Carrot seed oil is underrated when it comes to oils that treat your skin. It is a spectacular golden oil that has amazing anti-aging benefits for your skin. It’s great for mature skin that needs a little boost. It rejuvenates, protects, and decreases the signs of aging naturally.
Carrot seed oil is an essential oil that is extracted from the seed of the carrot plant. Also known as “Queen Anne’s Lace” it’s a plant that has incredible benefits for both your health and your skin. As new ingredients hit the market every single year, simple yet effective ingredients quietly disappear. But carrot seed oil is one that shouldn’t be shrugged away, when added to other oils it helps de-age your skin.
This healthy oil is high in powerful antioxidants such as vitamin E and C making it extremely powerful in protecting your skin from free radical assaults. It’s also been shown to help protect your skin against UV radiation making this delicate oil a great addition to your day time regimen.
When it comes to rejuvenating your skin, this oil produces results. Because it is high in vitamin C and E this golden oil has the ability to moisturize, heal, renew, and repair your skin. It rejuvenates skin cells, stimulates collagen production, and encourages new growth while bringing a refreshed beautiful glow to the skin.
It’s not a toxic essential oil, but if you are pregnant it should be avoided. It can be challenging to find this oil but as always Mountain Rose Herbs carries just about any wonderful oil you can imagine. I love blending oils such as carrot seed oil into argan oil and rosehip seed oil, it’s a simple, natural, and pure way to treat your skin to nature’s anti-aging gifts.
