Carrot Seed (Daucus carota) essential oil has a fruity, earthy rich aroma and is specific in skincare formulations for revitalizing and rejuvenating mature skin. When diluted properly and applied daily, it helps harmonize skin tone and soothes sensitive skin. Carrot Seed oil offers tonic properties and supports the regulation of the circulatory system, hormones, and metabolic functions as well.
Carrots originated in Asia and are best known for their prized roots. However, it is from the seed that the valuable essential oil is distilled from. The best seeds in the world originate in France, particularly the west-central Maine in the Loire region. The Simplers Botanicals distiller harvests in the summer months and gently crushes the seeds prior to distillation to allow the warm, fatty-woody aroma to emerge.

A variety of extraction methods are used to create essential oils. These methods include distillation, cold-press, and CO2 extraction. Patchouli essential oil is extracted using the distillation method.
Steam distillation is the most common method of extracting essential oils. Distillation forces the water portion of the plant (hydrosol) apart from the volatile (essential) oil. The essential oil transfers into a cooling chamber. The quality of the resulting oil depends on many factors—including the growth methods of the plant and the process and experience of the distiller.
Each plant yields a different volume of oil during the distillation process depending on its chemical properties. If a particular essential oil retails at a higher price, it is because more plant was required to result in that amount of oil.
