Essential Oils

Organic Wild Carrot essential oil

Very common in our regions, the wild carrot can be recognised by its small white flowers gathered in large umbels. After fertilisation, once the fruits have reached maturity, this inflorescence closes in the form of small birds' nests. The leaves and root have a carrot-like scent, while the seeds are more reminiscent of pears. Its essential oil is fresh and slightly acidic.

This should be taken into account when using them. Our opinion The essential oil of wild carrot obtained from the umbels, i.e. the flowers, is different from that obtained from the seeds. It therefore has different notes... slightly floral, fruity. Precautions for use • Contraindicated in women wishing to have children, in pregnant and breastfeeding women, and in young children. • Not for prolonged internal use. • Not recommended for hormone-dependent disorders. • Risk of allergy (limonene): take care not to overdose in mixtures. An elbow test is recommended prior to any skin application (min 48 hours before use). • Avoid contact with the eyes. • Keep out of reach of children. • Store away from heat and light.
