While obsessing over some of our more common staple oils such as Coconut, Almond or Olive oil, often times many of us tend to gloss over some of the more underrated essential oils in the group. Of the most highly rated and beneficial oils, Carrot Oil ranks high on my list of go-to’s. This golden-yellow, and subtly earthy oil has immense health benefits, and is particularly popular in beauty products aimed at anti-aging. Its healing antiseptic properties also make it an excellent source for curing skin irritations, such as eczema, rashes, and in some cases acne. So, you may be wondering then, what exactly is carrot oil skin care, and how can you implement it into your own routine? Luckily, you came to the right place.
How carrot oil skin care is made:
Both carrot oil and carrot seed oil are derived from wild carrots, otherwise known as Daucus Carota, which are rich in nutrients and vitamins, specifically vitamins A, C, and E, as well as beta-carotene, and a multitude of other antioxidants. The oil is commonly extracted from the vegetable through steam distillation of the seeds, although the entire vegetable is viable for yielding oil.
Like the benefits of a physical carrot, carrot oil carries a virtually endless amount of benefits for the body both inside and out, which again, puts the oil high on our list of must haves. For starters, carrot oil is an antioxidant. This means, that it helps to keep your skin looking refreshingly young by retaining your youth thanks to its ability to repair the damages done to your tissues from oxidants, or what are more commonly known as, free radicals. The antioxidants function to protect your skin from wrinkles, and can keep your joints from stiffening, your muscles from weakening, and can keep your eyesight from declining, sounds amazing right? Antioxidants can work other miracles too; they can protect you from weak digestion, improve blood circulation, and prevent some forms of cancer particularly those in the mouth, throat, stomach, prostrate, and kidney.
Carrot oil also functions as a healing detoxifier; helping to clean our body’s tissues, muscles and internal organs from toxins which can hinder our health. As a detoxifier, carrot oil works to neutralize excess bile, which in turn helps to cure common infections just as jaundice, and its elimination of toxins helps to cure conditions such as arthritis, edema, gout and rheumatism. It’s also been proven to have a beneficial effect on ailments such as bronchitis and influenza.
Finally, this magnificent oil has been known to bring immense benefits to hair and skin health. Due to its beta-carotene and Vitamin E properties, carrot oil has been used for many years in many products to promote hair health by strengthening the hair shaft, as well as to encourage new hair growth. In addition to this, its been known to be highly effective in nourishing the scalp and maintaining shiny and soft locks, as well as preventing dandruff. These same nourishing properties are also present when applied to the skin, as carrot oil is a common treatment for dry skin conditions such as eczema, psoriasis, and cracked or chapped skin. These skin repairing abilities make it a common oil for application before sun exposure (in combination with your sun screen of course), or after sun exposure to repair damage done by ultraviolet rays on the skin surface.
